President Trump on Friday suggested he might hold off on declaring a national emergency to circumvent Congress and begin building his long-promised border wall, at least for the time being.

Trump told reporters at the White House that he has the authority to make an emergency declaration to jump-start wall construction, but said, “I’m not going to do it so fast.”

The president reiterated that he prefers to work out a deal with Democrats in Congress, even though no agreement appears to be in sight after the partial government shutdown stretched into its 21st day.

“We want Congress to do its job,” the president said Friday. “What we’re not looking to do right now is national emergency.”

    I don’t think he’ll have a choice them dems have it their heads that because they have control of the house that they have complete control over the government and the entire country and our borders. They’re going to have to be bitch slapped back into reality.

    Sounds a bit like a waffle to me. I hope not, but time will tell.

    He’s holding Dems feet to the fire. Good for him.

    Instead of a national emergency, why doesn’t he have all those refusing to work with him arrested for obstruction? He has lawyers. Why the hell can’t they come up with a legal way to stop these people from obstructing governments ability to run??

    All supporters of the wall, Republican, independent or Democrat, must not be complacent and contact their elected officials. The contact should be phone calls, but emails may also make a difference, it doesn’t matter whether it is a Republican or Democrat, they must all hear the voice of the American people.
    We must also express the demand for border protection to Pelosi and Schumer, the two bought and paid for leaders of their houses.
