President Trump to Declare National Emergency, According to McConnell


The Washington Post reports President Trump will support the budget and border compromise bill which Congress will pass today and will simultaneously declare a national emergency according to Senate Leader Mitch McConnell.

Per the Washington Post:

The budget compromise would prevent a government shutdown set to start at the end of Friday, but it does not contain the money Trump has demanded for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The emergency declaration could allow Trump to procure wall funding without approval from Congress, though Democrats have promised to challenge the move.
