    No doubt Trumps thinly veiled campaign promise wouldn't qualify.

    Especially when contrasted with the true facts.

    This is just a Partisan issue ....... not based on any facts

    Nobody is disputing that a president has the right to declare a national emergency - but not for anything. It is not a national emergency just because Congress won't allocate funds for one of the president's pet projects.

    Some of the big differences between what Trump wants to do and the examples in the OP:
    - all of those examples resulted in blocking property / freezing assets, not spending billions of taxpayer money
    - all of those examples were in response to specific incidents or development of circumstances, not something that has been going on for years

    1. I'm not a "Lib"
    2. Obama was not "my boy"
    3. So your point is that Obama used emergency powers to do something completely different? OK.

    And by the way, there are three ongoing national emergencies that Trump has declared.

    No-one batted an eyelash about those.

    How many of those involved millions of illegals breaking immigration laws and hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars spent to pay for their healthcare, education, public assistance and countless other programs?

    They all REFUSE to ever acknowledge it as a problem. The 100s of Billions spent on them is no different than if it was spent on citizens, since we're just 1 world and 1 people, and no different, and all that ****.....hehe =)

    It's their legal obligation under the US Constitution to fund the national defense. Of which, a fortified border is most definitely under constitutional premises. I wish the Framers could look at our country in 2019.

    George Washington: "What's up with America"
    AmericanNationalist: "Hey Thomas Jefferson, remember when you said that the only ones who would conquer America were Americans?"
    Thomas Jefferson: "Yeah...."
    AmericanNationalist: "In 2019, we cannot fund our national defense."
    Thomas Jefferson: "WUT?"

    End this stupid spat.

    Before Christmas, the Senate voted on a bipartisan bill that included 1.6 billion for border security. There are hundreds of miles of barriers in place (most erected under Obama). Thousands of border, customs and immigration agents.

    America has never been invaded, and American soil attacked militarily only once - more than 70 years ago. America spends more on defence than any other country.

    Your suggestion that "we cannot fund our national defence" is laughable. Do actually think before you post?

    The real thing the Framers would be concerned about is the orange moron in the White House. "How the F did that guy get elected? What the hell has become of Americans if they would vote for that embarrassment to the human race?"

    5 billion is a drop in the bucket. That is as shallow an argument as that the Russians are coming. Democrats have politicized every aspect of this administration and are the cause of deep polarization all at the expense of those they claim to be crusaders for, sad.

    It hurts that there were enough Americans who were conned into voting for the only anti-American president who has ever inhabited the White House.

    It hurts even more that most of them haven't even recognised after two years that he is anti-American - and that they are cheering him on in the destruction of American values.

    Oh please. The only anti-American president to inhabit the White House was Obama.
