President Trump: I ‘May’ Declare National Emergency to Build Border Wall

President Donald Trump on Friday confirmed reports that he’s considered declaring a “national emergency” to build a wall along the southern border without congressional approval. “Yes I have [considered it], and I can do it if I want… I may do it,” Trump said. “We can call a national emergency and build it very quickly.” ABC News reported that Trump is “seriously considering” declaring a national emergency as a means to circumvent Congress and obtain funding for his desired border wall. The move would reportedly “reprogram funds from the Department of Defense and elsewhere” to help pay for a wall along the Mexican border. Sources reportedly told ABC News that discussions about the move are still on a “working level.”
