The president has been doing anything he can to make people believe there is an actual emergency at the Mexican border. Although multiple stories have come out about that being a political ploy, Trump and his supporters are persistent in getting that useless wall built.
Trump has been threatening to declare a national emergency to get the funding for his border wall, but analysts didn’t believe that he would go so far as to degrade the very system meant to protect our people against an actual emergency.
Trump has just declared that a national emergency does exist at the southern border.

McConnell just said:
“I had an opportunity to speak with President Trump and he, I would say to all my colleagues, has indicated he’s prepared to sign the bill. He also [will] be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time. I indicated I’m going to support the national emergency declaration.”
