New Delhi: President of the United States Donald Trump declared national emergency to bypass Congress to fulfill his long pending demand of building wall along Mexico’s border. Trump defended his move by saying that he had no choice but to use his powers to stop illegal migrants, crime and drugs inflow.
He declared the emergency to ‘pace up’ plans to build the wall. Trump’s move could be challenged legally, but Trump is confident that his decision will prevail.
Democrats in Congress Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer have criticized Trump’s move.
