re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Trump is now saying that if he doesn’t get his wall in three weeks, he’ll declare a national emergency

“We’ll work with the Democrats and negotiate and if we can’t do that, then we’ll do a--obviously we’ll do the emergency because that’s what it is. It’s a national emergency”

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

coming right out and saying you'll just do the natl emergency thing is so dumb from a negotiation perspective. 100% of your leverage comes from the actual threat of another shutdown and the dems fearing that somehow the political blame will shift to them this time.

once you take that off the table, there's just zero incentive to concede anything.

Amazing how Trump can't allow Stone to have the spotlight for one day.

He's lying. There's a reason he didn't declare a national emergency. McConnell, who doesn't want a dem president declaring a national health care emergency, probably told Trump that if he called an emergency then the Senate would pass the house bill with no wall funding. The Pres. would have to use military funds for a while and then would have to provide detailed info about the emergency for any additional funding after 120 days or something.

It's such a bad idea that I'm surprised Trump didn't do it.

Also, if McConnell doesn't want an emergency it seems like congress could also end the emergency by passing a resolution, IIRC? I guess it would need to be a veto-proof resolution, but that's not impossible under those circumstances

Don't think Trump is bluffing about the national emergency.

He's sensitive to how the Ann Coulter types are reacting, and he'll want to show them he's still pushing for the wall. Democrats aren't going to agree to a bill that allows him to save face, so he won't have any alternatives.

really minor point, but GHWB was parachuting out of his burning plane after dropping his bomb load in WW2 as a 20 year old. Perpetuating the "wimp" myth makes you a moron. Maybe we need a "Things that make you mad but shouldn't" thread in Politics.
