President Trump is going to address the nation on prime time television tonight, in relation to building The Wall. I will of course attempt to tune in on YouTube or somewhere like that, although I won’t be surprised if I run into problems. (Seems like I always run into internet problems when Trump addresses the nation, but never at any other time. Weird.)
Anyway, my money is on him NOT declaring a state of emergency in relation to building the wall.
If he was really planning on declaring an emergency, he wouldn’t be talking about it and thereby giving the opposition a chance to prepare a solid legal challenge.
It’s a negotiating technique. Hint that something worse could be in store if the opposition doesn’t get their ass in gear and agree to the current terms of the deal.
If I’m wrong, though, that would be really cool. What he ought to do is declare a state of emergency and when some liberal judge inevitably throws up an injunction, declare the judge to be an enemy agent and subject to arrest. We could keep Gitmo populated with liberal judges for the foreseeable future! Heheheh.
