Trump says he may declare an emergency; calls Pelosi ’very rigid’

President Trump stepped up his attacks on Nancy Pelosi on Friday, saying ’she’s very bad for our country’. Trump called Pelosi ’very rigid’ and said she was trying to ’win a political point’ by opposing his demands to fund the wall. Trump said there is a ’good chance’ he will bypass the US Congress and declare a national emergency to obtain funding for a wall.

This makes little sense. Dems will (rightfully) get a court-ordered injunction halting construction before it's even begun. Stop pretending this is an option. God forbid we get a president Kamala Harris who decides global warming is an emergency and turns off our oil industry, something that would actually kill people.

You don't declare an emergency and then wait months before acting upon it. Trump is shooting himself in the foot. That is going to be a point the lawyers will make to block Trump's claim in court.

Looks like the writers at Vox better learn to code before they end up like Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, and Vice.

there definitely is a national emergency here in AZ. laws being broken by hundreds of people everyday being caught and imposing a burden on the state. people are being killed everywhere because of this. a national emergency declaration is warranted.

I support Trump calling for a national emergency that will just get jammed up in the courts. it really sets the precedent for when the pendulum of power swings back and an emergency could be in stated for say climate change, health care, or guns. do it.
