With the government remaining in a partial shutdown due to the democratic obstruction in Congress, President Trump is set to address the nation at 9pm Tuesday.
It has been a contentious week for President Trump, who remains hopeful that democratic leaders such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will come to the negotiating table to work out a deal on border security. Such an agreement would allow the congressional spending bill that is currently stalled in Congress to finally pass, and begin paying owed wages to the nearly 1 million government employees currently working for no compensation.
The President, for what it’s worth, is weighing every option that he can on the border, including the possibility of declaring a national emergency or humanitarian crisis in order to use executive power to build a wall.
Now, in a nod to that possibility, the President has made an announcement.
The likelihood of this announcement being a military takeover at the border and a national emergency certainly isn’t out the question, and the speculation by the mainstream media will be coming shortly.
