ENOUGH: Trump Considers Declaring ‘National Emergency’ to Secure Border Wall Funding

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.04.19

President Trump took his ongoing budget battle with congressional Democrats to the next level this week; saying he may “declare a national emergency” to secure funding for his signature campaign promise: a border wall between the US and Mexico.

The President was speaking with journalists outside the White House Friday moments after a high-stakes meeting with Sen. Chuck Schumer; saying he may build the wall for “national security” if we can’t “do it through a negotiated process.”

“We can call a national emergency [to build a border wall] because of the security of our country,” Trump told reporters. “I may do it. If we can do it through a negotiated process, we’re giving it a shot.”
