The Path to a ‘National Emergency’

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

What should Trump do now? Act. He cannot lose this battle with Pelosi without demoralizing his people and imperiling his presidency. Since FDR, we have had presidential government. And when U.S. presidents have been decisive activists, history has rewarded their actions. Trump should declare a national emergency, shift funds out of the Pentagon, build his wall, open the government and charge Democrats with finding excuses not to secure our border because they have a demographic and ideological interest in changing the face of the nation. "America First!" is still a winning hand.
