Infuriated By Loss Of Border Wall Skirmish, Trump Vows To Declare National Emergency
President Donald Trump plans to go around Congress in an attempt to fund his U.S.-Mexico border wall.
According to Reuters, Trump conceded defeat in his demand that Congress provide him with $5.7 billion in wall money.
He agreed to sign a funding bill that prevents another government shutdown, but lacks funding for the wall.
At the same time, he vowed to declare a national emergency.
The step is likely to plunge him into a court battle with Congress over constitutional powers.
