Trump threatens to declare emergency on border visit | USA News

US President Donald Trump travelled to the country’s southern border as he tries to bolster his case that the country is facing a crisis which can only be solved by spending billions of dollars to construct a border wall.

Trump threatened to declare a national emergency to circumvent Congress if he can’t reach a deal with Democrats to fund his promised border wall as he visited the US-Mexico border in Texas on Thursday.
