Trump Leaves Border Emergency Out of State of the Union

One thing President Trump didn't mention during his State of the Union address was whether he'd fund his proposed border wall by declaring a national emergency.

Trump: "In the past, most of the people in this room voted for a wall — but the proper wall never got built.

I'll get it built." The president called on Congress to support an immigration package that includes money for a border wall.

But he stopped short of saying he'd use emergency powers to unilaterally redirect existing funds towards building that wall.

That likely came as a welcome relief for Republican leaders in Congress, who've  been warning  President Trump the move could divide the party.

Several GOP members worry an emergency declaration would only serve to embolden future Democratic presidents.

Republican Rep.

Sean Duffy of Wisconsin told Newsy: "My question is how does some future president use this tool in a way that i might disagree with."

15, the deadline to avoid another government shutdown.

President Trump has been  publicly skeptical  of Congressional efforts so far.

White House officials said before the speech that the president might still declare an emergency if Congress can't come up with a deal.

White House Director of Strategic Communications Mercedes Schlapp told Newsy: "We first want to see if we can get a legislative fix.

We want to see if we can get a negotiated deal.

National emergency, again, on the table.

One of the options.

The president has been working closely with his legal team to make sure that we can move on that option if we need to." This video includes reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
