Trump Reportedly To Sign Spending Bill, Declare Border Emergency

There is virtually no way that any member of the Senate read the $333 billion budget bill prior to voting for it. At best they skimmed it. It’s a typical trainwreck, and provides little for border security. So, what’s Trump to do?

Trump plans to allocate $8 billion to fund border wall, source says

President Trump‘s plans to declare a national emergency in order to fund his long-promised border wall will enable his administration to move $8 billion from various federal agencies to fund the project, a senior administration official told Fox News late Thursday.

The news comes as Trump is expected to sign a House border security package that provides $1.4 billion for the project, which is far below the $5.7 billion Trump insisted he needed and would finance just a quarter of the 200-plus miles he wanted to be defended against illegal immigrants.

Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said earlier Thursday that Trump will sign the spending bill and declare a national emergency at the same time Friday morning.

The White House said Trump would sign the legislation but act unilaterally to get more funding, prompting condemnations from Democrats and threats of lawsuits from states and others who might lose federal money or said Trump was abusing his authority.

All Democrats had to do was give him the money. It would have been easy. Instead, they passed this bill, and idiot Republicans in the Senate voted for it, despite including things like a reduction of money for housing detained illegal aliens. But, hey, Dems have Open Borders idiots like Beto O’Rourke, a good representative of the current beliefs-set in the DNC, calling to tear down the existing walls. Don’t call them Open Borders, though, right?

Then there’s this

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Thursday theorized that if President Trump can declare a national emergency in order to bypass Congress to fund a border wall, there’s no reason that a Democratic president in the future can’t employ the same measure to deal with gun violence in the country.

Pelosi made the remarks during a press conference in the Capitol Thursday – the anniversary of the Parkland massacre in Florida that left 17 people dead.

“Let’s talk about today: The one-year anniversary of another manifestation of the epidemic of gun violence in America,” Pelosi said. “That’s a national emergency. Why don’t you declare that emergency, Mr. President? I wish you would. “But a Democratic president can do that.”

What would that Dem president do, Nance? Declare that it is illegal to murder someone with a gun? Or is she threatening to confiscate firearms from law abiding citizens? Good luck with that in the courts. Remember, these same Dems are against stop and frisk.

A few squishy Republicans are also concerned with declaring it an emergency, but, since most of the Democrat 2020 candidates are against doing it, it must be a good idea.

    As predicted… tRump could not tolerate the political blowback from another tRump Shutdown so this is all he could do.

    Declaring National Emergency enables tRumpt to declare Winning! (Although he’ll lose in the courts). tRump lives for the moment and is playing his base.

    He will set up a National Emergency Command Center in Palm Beach FL this weekend. That’s how seriously he takes this slow motion “emergency”.

    I think the term “Trump Denier” should become a term.
    It will drive his critics crazy!
