‘I may declare a national emergency’ to build wall

‘I may declare a national emergency’ to build wall”

Trump maintains that more than $5 billion for a wall is necessary to secure the border.

This is the right move for the president.

The president has previously suggested his definition of "wall" is flexible, but Democrats view the whole idea as immoral and ineffective, and prefer other forms of border security. "Second meeting set for tomorrow", Trump said on Twitter. During that trip, Trump toured 9m-tall steel and concrete prototypes of the border wall in California and strongly condemned jurisdictions that offer "sanctuary" to undocumented immigrants.

The standoff - which has heavily affected national parks and other operations and threatens to halt payments as varied as food stamps and tax refunds - has made Trump's unrealized border wall the linchpin of his presidency as he seeks to make good on a signature campaign promise.

Smith said declaring a national emergency would be "wide open to court challenges", adding that using the military to build the wall would amount to "a bad use of Department of Defense dollars".

The partial government shutdown is spotlighting the limitations of President Donald Trump's erratic negotiating style.

"If the Democrats want to keep their impeachment talk - where we know there is no collusion, where we've been transparent and cooperative in the process - that's a losing strategy for them", Schlapp said on "America's Newsroom" Monday.

Mick Mulvaney, Trump's acting chief of staff, told NBC's "Meet the Press" program that agreeing to a steel separation would allow Democrats to stick to their refusal to fund a wall.

It's unclear exactly what he will be doing with this visit, although Sanders said more details will be forthcoming.

"There's no requirement that this government be shut down while we deliberate the future of any barrier, whether it's a fence or a wall", Sen. Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, told CNN on Monday that while Trump could declare such an emergency, it would nearly certainly be challenged in court.

Large chunks of the federal government were shut down on December 22 after lawmakers and the president hit an impasse over Trump's demands to build a wall.

Democrats returned to Washington in the new year, taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives, and passed legislation to reopen all closed government agencies but did not include wall funding.

He said the president has invited Democratic leaders back to the White House this week for new talks, but so far there has been no response.

U.S. President Donald Trump is traveling to the U.S. He added of the Democrats, "They don't like concrete, so we'll give them steel".

Trump, however, tweeted late Sunday afternoon that the meeting was productive.

In Washington Mike Pence, the vice president, restarted talks with key Democrat representatives in an attempt to break the deadlock with the looming threat that Mr Trump may invoke emergency powers in order to get the wall built.

Democrats also took aim at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who has been uncharacteristically disengaged from the shutdown talks as Trump has repeatedly shifted course.

Trump also asserted that he could relate to the plight of the hundreds of thousands of federal workers who aren't receiving paycheques, though he acknowledged they will have to "make adjustments" to deal with the shutdown shortfall.

"Senate Democrats should block consideration of any bills unrelated to opening the government until Sen".

"We have a five-month-old son so we have about a month left before we're going to have to start having those hard conversations about what to do next", he said.
