Donald Trump revives 'national emergency' threat over border wall funding while 800,000 Govt workers go unpaid in US shutdown

Firstpost Friday, 11 January 2019
US President Donald Trump threatened on Thursday to declare a national emergency to circumvent Congress if he can't reach a deal with Democrats to fund his promised border wall. He arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border to draw further attention to his case after negotiations with lawmakers blew up. The partial government shutdown dragged into a 20th day with hundreds of thousands of federal workers off the job or working without pay as the wall fight persisted.
