Today,post-Valentine’s Day(Feb. 15,2019), U.S. President Donald Trump declared a national emergency with regards to building his border wall along the US-Mexico border. In this way, he would decide the allocation of funds which would make it possible for such a wall construction to take effect. God forbid that he will dip his fingers on the US social assistance funds so as to support his border wall dream.
What happened to his claim that Mexico will pay for the wall? Will he also donate some of his personal funds or even his Presidential salary to the wall endeavor? Just asking.
Never mind checks and balances in government. What he did is basically trying to get what he wants in his own way and bypassing US Congress. Appears more like a dictatorship in the making.
Running Trump Towers as the main boss is one thing . Running a government is another.
If he really wants to execute his national emergency powers,he could do it now to enforce gun regulation in light of today’s factory shooting in Aurora. Illinois. Also as a side note, yesterday was also the 1st year anniversary of the high school shooting in Parkland,Florida.
It remains to be seen if the other US politicians will collude with him or not just for short-term political gain with regards to today’s declaration. Whether they have the political spine or not to protect US democracy.
God help us all!
