    Yeah, that sounded like a threat if there ever was one. I’d bet that Trump would also love to have a ‘national emergency’ lasting months or even years, so he doesn’t have to worry about congress and that he’d have dictatorial powers like in Egypt and other autocracies.

      Trump once said being a dictator isn’t so bad as long as you have some supporters.

      +texas thunder What she said was they must Slow down the rapid immigration because of the overwhelming numbers of refugees were creating more problems that the desired nations could handle. They had nowhere to put the tens of thousands of people that arrived unannounced at the borders.

    A self-made national emergency ? The general has already declared there is no invading army. Can you say “abuse of office” ?

      Just looking at other comments. Hitler did a similar thing and declared all the problems were the fault of the Jews. (and got many to agree with him.)

      LOL one is outright genocide the other is national self-determination and security. No one wants to bring harm to Hispanics. Not similar or the same thing, at all. Ultimately it’s a question of whether humanity still agrees with the idea of a “nation,” which most western nations are beginning to abandon the concept of a “nation,” and are transitioning to a different, “economic/values-oriented” type of territorial entity.

    Just like Trump’s national emergency reason for tariffs on aluminum coming from Canada. Unfortunately, Trump’s national emergency can’t change the fact that there is negligible bauxite mining (or deposits for that matter) in the US. We either have to ship in the ore, (much higher shipping costs than finished product) and potentially the electricity as well (with potentially higher costs due to transmission losses). Ignorance can’t trump economics.

    Trump this is not a national emergency this is you not being able to come through on a lie you promised your followers. You lied to them saying Mexico would pay for the wall in order to get their vote. Now you cannot fulfill your lie. Tax payers shouldnโ€™t have to pay for your lies.

    When majority elected Trump as president instead of Hilary, shows ppl want the wall.

    So Congress don’t balance out the power. It’s against the very foundation of democracy. against the will of the ppl.

    Trump should have walls and locks around Nancy’s house abolished

    A national emergency… Over an issue he created… Without an actual military invasion form from any foreign power. Without any natural disasters. Without any rioting (yet). About an archaic wall he said Mexico would pay for, and couldn’t get a republican controlled house or Senate to agree with… Shutting down the government over border security while border agents go without pay…

    It’s this really about the wall?

    Or is it about his taxes and shutting down the Russia investigation? This is starting to look like a coup.
