Trump Appears To Signal Wall “Emergency” Declaration

NBC News reports:

President Donald Trump said he will make a “major” announcement on Saturday about the border and ongoing government shutdown. The president did not provide any further details on what he would be discussing on what is set to be the 28th day of the partial government shutdown.

The shutdown is the result of Congress’s inability to pass a short-term funding bill for the government that Trump would be willing to sign. The president has insisted that such a bill contain more than $5 billion in funding to build a border wall. Democrats have refused to agree with that demand.
