WorthyNews:Trump edges closer to declaring national emergency to build border wall without Democrats' OK

Recommended Posts

(Worthy News) - President Trump edged closer to declaring a national emergency Thursday that would allow him to build a barrier on the southern border without Democrats’ approval, even suggesting he might outsource some of the work to the state of Texas.

With no negotiations set for resolving the 20-day-old partial government shutdown, Mr. Trump traveled to a Border Patrol station in McAllen, Texas, to meet with agents and highlight the immigration and trafficking crisis. He said the collapse of talks with Democratic leaders a day earlier has nearly persuaded him of the need to declare an emergency.

“I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency,” the president said. “If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely. I’m prepared for anything.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

I have learned not to pay much attention to what Trump says. I am in wait and see mode.

I want to fly to Canada to visit my husband sometime in the next six weeks, so I hope they get this straightened out soon.

Well I don't know everything. But I kind of think it isn't right and even a bit scary for a president to declare a national  emergency to try to get what he wants by force just because he didn't get what he wanted. But as Pepper said. Wait and see mode.

That is too simplistic for me. I know people who use this as an excuse to turn their heads and walk away. I am not saying that is you. I am sure you are constantly in prayer and probably donating to local food banks to help out.

 

 I believe God gives humans free will. 

Here on the local news, there was a woman who has already been told by her landlord that she has to move if she can't pay her rent today. She is just one of many.

Many are missing a paycheck today and will have trouble feeding their family and paying utility bills.
