House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday’s meeting had been “contentious”. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer told reporters: “We told the president we needed the government open.

Anthony Zurcher, BGIC News, WV Donald Trump says he can declare a “national emergency” and build his promised wall along the border without congressional approval. If that’s the case, the question becomes why he doesn’t go ahead and do that. Why put federal workers through the pain of forgoing pay and hamstring key government agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, if he could bypass Democratic objections with the snap of his presidential fingers?

“We are also thankful both men are safely in custody and this did not end in further tragedy,” a police statement said. Warren arrived in the US 3 days before Cornell-Duranleau’s death.

The answer is because the solution isn’t that simple. There are provisions of United States law that allow the president to direct military construction projects during war or national emergency, but that money would have to come from Defence Department funds allocated by Congress for other purposes.

Then there’s the inevitable legal challenge from Democrats to such an exercise of presidential authority. Any presidential order to build a wall would be met by an equally imposing wall of court filings blocking its construction. The president’s latest suggestions are best viewed as simply another attempt to gain the upper hand in negotiations with Democrats. Mr Trump says it’s not a threat – and he’s probably right.
