    Trump to Declare national Emergency.

    Thin Skin Fox News Donald Strikes again.

    Amazing Trump gives Billions to a dying industry like Coal and Seems to be encouraging his right wing base to be Uneducated. It's no wonder Right Wingers seem to hate Educated people and Education in general. Another 8 billion for a useless wall but can't get any money to properly fix Flint and other Poor Areas in america where people don't have access to clean drinking water.

    Trump will sign bill to avoid shutdown, then announce $8 billion national emergency for border wall, official says
    The White House official says Trump is expected to announce that he will use executive action to draw on a variety of administration funding sources to help finance construction of his wall on the border. A national emergency declaration is expected to be one part of that.

    Americans are the Chinese of the west. The main reason people tolerate them is because they are too big to ignore.

    Bill Nye is not the GOP type of guy. He is a science guy. Trumpers think science is a lie.

    yeah well, giving money to poor people so they can drink clean water is "socialism"

    Good. Every action he takes at this point just digs him deeper. Maybe he's trying to tunnel his way to Russia.

    Nice to see Trump keeping another campaign promise.

    He's going to be sued within seconds of issuing the declaration by the House and numerous states and he will lose in court. It's not an emergency if you wait two years to start threatening to do it and then spend two months threatening to do it if Congress doesn't give you what you want.

    Hell, his own DoJ has warned the WH they will likely lose in court.

    The Wall is never going to get built.

    Not to mention he's breaking his promise to have Mexico pay for it in the first place.

    My thoughts:

    Trump did it so it's good. I put my faith in a strong political figure because I lack self-esteem and feel threatened by a changing world. Whoever stands against him is bad because I do not understand their arguments and I have a simple tribalistic mindset created through the consumption of right-wing media.

    Look out everyone we're getting honest Knadra again. Be sure to cherish this moment of sanity before it's gone again.

    Well at least they're being honest now.

    This should be a pretty straightforward legal challenge. If you've asked congress, it's by definition, not an emergency, and an article I violation.

    Legal battles will last longer than his presidency, even if he wins in 2020. Everyone who owns the land he wants to steal is going to sue and those will not be quick cases.

    This will turn his supporters. You are about to see the difference between conservatives who supported Trump due to kinship, to people who are just trolling. Check the 3 threads talking about it... I know people are surprised Knadra posted the above, but he isn’t the only one doing it.

    Edit: The Republican Party was born out of the ashes of Whigs, primarily due to being against federalism. This isn’t just against common GOP rhetoric, this is fundamentally against the founding principles of Republicans.

    Dammit, this is too long to put in a sig

    Congress not doing what he wants is not an emergency.

    What is an emergency is a president who's trying to act like a dictator.

    I genuinely can't ever tell if Knadra's for real or a parody account.

    He's a parody that enjoys shit posting. Think we have a word for that.

    I wonder how much longer the republican party is going to sit by while watching this shit show. I guess we will see how dumb the americans truly are after the next election. Even spite should not last that long.. especially when it would mean another 4 years of this.

    If this would happen in my country, even if the party had successfully established regular & free steak and blowjob handouts for everyone, there is no way I would vote for it again in the next couple decades until all those silent traitors had died off or left the party.
