(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...) ]

  1. Trump said: "I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency"

    I didn't realize that U.S. presidents had the absolute rights of a medieval king, or is this just another example of Trump creating a crisis that only he can "fix"?

  2. Don't worry Joseph DeCaro: Trump will not be able to secure our national borders and keep drugs and murderers from invading. Somewhere there is a Federal Judge who apparently has more power than the President of the United States, who will block whatever he tries to pass... Sadly, our current political climate allows traitors and those who hate us to flourish.

  3. And, at the same time, AOL and MSNBC are publishing how Trump has scaled back his "national emergency" option because with it he has put himself into a corner.

    So, which is it?
