Why President Trump Declared a National Emergency
President Donald Trump today signed a Continuing Resolution today that will fund the government to avoid a shutdown. The president declared a national emergency to acquire funding to secure the southern border of the United States. Following his announcement, he informed the audience that he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The president commented on possibly winning the Noble Peace Prize. "I'll probably never get it, but that's okay. They gave it to Obama, he didn't know what he got it for. He was there for 15 seconds and didn't know what he got it for," he said.
President Trump continued his belief that the Southern Border of the United States needs to be protected by a Wall. "So we're going to confront the national security crisis on our Southern Border. We going to do it one way or the other. Not because it was a campaign promise," he said.
Angle Moms and Dads, those that have lost loved ones due to illegal aliens, were honored by the president during his speech. He announced that he's sending surplus equipment down to the border to help protect American citizens.
The president predicted that he will be sued by a variety of critics. The commander in chief said that his opponents will go to the ninth circuit. He stated that the ninth circuit will rule against him and eventually the Untied State Supreme Court will back him.
