Graham Trump must use emergency forces to finance the wall
US Senator Lindsay Graham announced that President Donald Trump should declare a state of emergency and use his powers to fund construction of the wall along the border with Mexico.

"It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall / wall, I hope it will work," Graham said.

Trump: We should be able to make a deal with Congress

US President Donald Trump said he would announce a national emergency on the border with Mexico if no deal was reached with Democrats in Congress but avoided setting a deadline for the deal.

"If we do not reach an agreement with Congress, we will declare a national emergency," Trump told Fox News at the Texas border, "but I think we should be able to make a deal with Congress because there is a wall on the southern border." Common sense ".

Trump said he was waiting for the Democrats to come to the White House and sign an agreement to close the government, now in its third week, but did not say when the national emergency would be announced. "We will see what happens in the next few days, we will not go anywhere, we need the checkpoint," Trump said.
