President Trump will declare a national emergency to fund his demand to build a border wall, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced on the Senate floor Thursday.

“I had an opportunity to speak with President Trump and he, I would say to all my colleagues, has indicated he’s prepared to sign the bill. He also [will] be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time. I indicated I’m going to support the national emergency declaration,” McConnell announced shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday.

The White House affirmed Trump would sign the package minutes later in an emailed statement from press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

“President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action – including a national emergency – to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border,” Sanders said.

The spokesperson added that Trump is “once again delivering on his promise to build the wall, protect the border, and secure our great country,” a remark appeared to be aimed at conservative critics of the agreement who said it does not fulfill Trump’s campaign pledge to build a wall along the southern border. More

Sometimes it seems like President Trump is the only one fighting for Americans. I trust President Trump is doing the very best he can under difficult circumstances with little to no help. The good news is he’s calling a National Emergency and there’s no DACA or amnesty on the bill.
