Trump to declare border emergency unless Congress acts

President Trump signaled Thursday that he will likely declare a national emergency to have the military build his border wall unless Congress negotiates a deal to give him the money.

As he departed the White House en route to Texas for a visit to the border he said it “would be very surprising to me” if he didn’t go that route, should talks on Capitol Hill continue to stall.

“I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency,” he said. “If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”

He also tamped down on a report that steel bollard fencing was easily penetrated during tests of the wall prototypes the president had built in 2017.
