Trump says not in a rush to declare emergency in border wall fight
Saturday, 12 January 2019 WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Friday he would not declare a national emergency for now as a way of securing funds for a border wall and ending a partial government shutdown, adding that he would rather see the U.S. Congress act. "We want Congress to do its job," Trump said during a White House event on border security, adding that Democratic lawmakers "should come back and vote." "What we're not looking to do right now is national emergency," the Republican president said
President Trump tweeted a video Thursday of former President Obama in 2014 talking about a crisis at the border. Former Obama White House communications director Anita Dunn explains the difference in their messages on CBSN's "Red & Blue."
