President Trump Outside White House: ‘I May Declare A National Emergency’
President Donald Trump delivered a characteristically inspiring press briefing outside the White House Sunday.
“I may declare a national emergency dependent on what’s going to happen over the next few days,” President Trump said, referring to his plans to get the southern border Wall built despite congressional Democrat obstructionism. “We have a meeting. Vice President Pence and a group will be going to a certain location…and they’ll be having another meeting. I don’t expect to have anything happen at that meeting, nor does the Vice President.”
“Everybody’s playing games, but I can say this: I feel like the Democrats want to make a deal. I really do.”
Here is the press briefing:
I wrote on this momentous Sunday:
President Donald Trump is capable of building the Wall by declaring a national emergency and directing Department of Defense funds, overseen by DOD Secretary Patrick Shanahan, to secure our southern border from criminal gangs and terrorists.
The Democrats, then, have no leverage, and their persistent holdout on $5.6 billion in Wall funds is only exposing them for who they are: weak quislings, shills for the globalist billionaires around the world who seek to crush America, to make this great country submit to the will of a financial system that benefits the very few. America is “supposed” to fulfill a service role nowadays. We are supposed to be the low-paid Wal-Mart cashiers changing money on Chinese-assembled merchandise. We are supposed to be the social justice warriors advocating for one-world communism on our college campuses. We are supposed to play our part.
But we choose not to.
The American people are engaged in spiritual warfare against the forces that want to divide and conquer us. We win when our energy simply overwhelms theirs. We triumph when the forces of Good overpower the forces of Evil. We prevail when our determination outmatches their stubbornness, when our perseverance defeats their Fear. We win when our Wall casts a long shadow over their Tower of Babel.
Across America, the energy is on President Trump’s side. Building the Wall will be a victory that will define the Trump agenda in 2020: Nationalism, security, America First. It is the biggest issue because it pertains to all other issues. And there is no better way to inspire the people to fight for the other issues than by allowing them to see a magnificent Wall, as promised, on our southern border (a second wall on the US-Canada border can be the next discussion).
“Our purpose in the meeting at the White House was to open up government. The impression you get from the president [is] that he would like to not only close government, build a wall, but also abolish Congress so the only voice that mattered was his own,” said Nancy Pelosi on a low-IQ Sunday show.
But she’s wrong. President Trump’s voice is a conduit for the voices of the American people. Congress, on the other hand, is an obstacle, a corrupt entity badly in need of reform (read: term limits).
Do you think these guys want to listen to what Nancy Pelosi has to say? These guys want a Wall.
