Trump backs away from declaring national emergency to fund border wall

Trump backs off declaring national emergencyDonald Trump has backed away from his threat to declare a national emergency to fund  his long-promised border wall, as pressure mounts to find a solution to  the three-week impasse that has closed parts of the government, leaving  hundreds of thousands of workers without pay.


“We want Congress to do its job,” the president said Friday during a  roundtable on border security at the White House. “What we’re not  looking to do right now is national emergency.”


Trump’s comments came amid reports that he was consulting White House  attorneys and allies about declaring a national emergency, and using  presidential powers to take unilateral action to construct the wall over  the objections of Congress. He had earlier claimed that his lawyers  told him the action would withstand legal scrutiny “100%”.
