Trump says he could use emergency powers to build border wall

Firstpost Saturday, 5 January 2019
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Friday he could use emergency powers to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border without Congress' approval, threatening to bypass Democratic lawmakers emboldened by their recent takeover of the House of Representatives. A showdown between Trump and Congressional Democrats over funding for his wall project has led to a two-week government shutdown. Trump says he will not support a bill to fully fund the government until he secures the money for the wall
