Trump Backs Off: 'Not Looking' To Declare National Emergency 'So Fast'

Trump Backs Off: 'Not Looking' To Declare National Emergency 'So Fast'”

Of course, this met two immediate obstacles: Trump, who said "I want a guaranteed wall", and Nancy Pelosi, who said, "there will be no wall".

But such a move would be hugely controversial, sparking allegations of the overuse of executive powers and it would nearly certainly face huge legal challenges.

Some US media reports suggest the White House is considering diverting some of the $13.9bn allocated a year ago by Congress for disaster relief in such areas as Puerto Rico, Texas and California to pay for the wall. That's according to a congressional aide and administration official familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. Democrats, meanwhile, say they will not fund the wall. It would have linked wall funding to deportation protections for some immigrants, including young people here illegally known as Dreamers.

President Trump on the partial government shutdown and efforts to reach a compromise on border wall funding. "When the next Democratic President declares a national emergency over gun violence and takes executive actions to curtail gun purchases, you can thank the people urging Donald Trump to do the same with regards to the border", he wrote on Twitter.

Before the shutdown began, Trump said he would be "proud" to close the government over the issue of border security and would not blame Democrats, although he later did.

Congressional and Pentagon sources tell NPR that the Army Corps of Engineers has been asked to identify projects that could be canceled or delayed so those funds could be repurposed for a border barrier.

Still, he declared: "A wall works".

He argued that the US can't solve the problem without a "very substantial barrier" along the border, but offered exaggerations about the effectiveness of border walls and current apprehensions of those crossing illegally. "What is manufactured is the use of the word 'manufactured, '" Trump said. Supporters have tried to convince him that an emergency declaration is the best option to end the shutdown and would give him political cover to reopen the government without appearing to be caving on his pledge.

The president has blamed the shutdown on Democrats, and Democrats have blamed the president.
