JUST IN: Trump Implies He’s Going Around Congress to Build the Wall…In Two Weeks

Things are about to get wild!

The government reopened after a 35-day partial shutdown because President Trump felt Democrats were ready to talk about the border wall.

He’s not very confident of that anymore.

Instead, 45 implies he’ll go around Congress in two weeks when the government eventually shuts down again on February 15.

In an interview in the Oval Office, Mr. Trump called the talks “a waste of time” and indicated he will most likely take action on his own when they officially end in two weeks. At the same time, he expressed optimism about reaching a trade deal with China and denied being at odds with his intelligence chiefs.

“I think Nancy Pelosi is hurting our country very badly by doing what’s she doing and, ultimately, I think I’ve set the table very nicely,” Mr. Trump said. While he would not directly say that he plans to declare a national emergency to build the wall, he added: “I’ve set the table. I’ve set the stage for doing what I’m going to do.”

Trump: “I’ve actually always gotten along with [Pelosi], but now I don’t think I will any more,” Mr. Trump said. “I think she’s doing a tremendous disservice to the country. If she doesn’t approve the wall, the rest of it’s just a waste of money and time and energy because it’s desperately needed.”

Mr. Trump has been considering an emergency declaration to spend money on a wall even without congressional approval, an action that would most likely draw a court challenge, and he said Ms. Pelosi would not be able to stop him. “I’ll continue to build the wall, and we’ll get the wall finished,” he said. “Now whether or not I declare a national emergency — that you’ll see.”

WATCH:

Trump noted, “I wish people would read or listen to my words on the Border Wall. This was in no way a concession. It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!”

Here’s the tweet:

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders elaborated, noting that the wall is coming in 21 days “with or without the Democrats.”

In 21 days President @realDonaldTrump is moving forward building the wall with or without the Democrats. The only outstanding question is whether the Democrats want something or nothing

In case you were wondering, yes, Trump can build the wall using a different section of the US code…

[Trump’s] authority is even stronger in the field of combating drug smuggling, even without the declared health crisis. 10 U.S.C. § Section 284 allows the secretary of defense, upon request from federal or state law enforcement dealing with drug trafficking, and in conjunction with the secretary of state, to “provide support for the counterdrug activities or activities to counter transnational organized crime.” Subsection b(7) allows the DOD to provide help in the form of “construction of roads and fences and installation of lighting to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States.”

This is not some parsimonious loophole for an excuse to build a wall. This is the whole enchilada, folks. The main reason we need a wall is to combat the smugglers and the cartels who use the migration to bring in their contraband and dangerous criminals. Last October, the DOJ designated MS-13, Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG), Sinaloa Cartel, and Clan del Golfo as transnational crime organizations (TCOs).

Things are about to get wild!

BOMBSHELL: Judge Who Blocked Trump’s Border Wall Donated $30,000 to Obama & Dems

Hmm. Anything fishy here?

Oh, good. Another Obama judge blocking President Trump from doing things to benefit all Americans. Haywood Gilliam just found himself in a big mess, but it’s all his doing. From Washington Examiner: A federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s plans to build a border wall along the United States-Mexico border previously donated almost $30,000 to former President Obama, other Democrats, and a political action committee. U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000. But wait! There’s more… Gilliam made the donations, first reported by the Epoch Times, prior to serving as a U.S. District judge. He had said during his confirmation hearing that he “would base my decisions solely on the facts of each case and the applicable precedent, without regard to any political ideology or motivation,” and that “any personal views would not interfere in any way with my ability to neutrally apply the law.” Patrick Shanahan will most likely become the next Secretary of Defense after he was recently nominated to the post by President Trump. Shanahan is currently the acting SecDef, having filled the shoes of James “Mad Dog” Mattis. Shanahan made clear that hundreds of miles of wall have been contracted to be built on America’s southern border with Mexico. Democrat hearts are breaking across the country. So @ActingSecDef just told Congress that 256 new miles of Trump’s Wall is now funded to be built, at the rate of half a mile every…

WATCH: CNN Says Stuttering Pelosi Tweet Is A ‘Smear,’ But Nancy’s Attacks On POTUS Are Valid

Double standard, much??

When President Trump sends a tweet of Speaker Pelosi stuttering, it’s a “smear.” When Pelosi and Democrats say 45 is mentally unfit for office, it’s no big deal. That’s how things work in Liberalville. Up is down and nothing makes sense. For your entertainment, enjoy the musings of CNN’s Brian Stelter… WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132744472037511168?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132744472037511168&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F421760-cnns-brian-stelter-claims-showing-pelosi-problems-is-smear-but-her-attack-on-trumps-mental-health-shows-real-concerns-about-him%2F Due to the conservative policies of President Trump, unemployment in America just hit a 50-year low. Unemployment now stands at 3.6 percent, which is undoubtedly a milestone for the Trump administration – and the United States, as a whole. Women and black Americans, in particular, are thriving. And yet, far-left Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) doesn’t see it that way – continuing to play politics at every turn. Pelosi argues that the low unemployment rate is “promising,” but it doesn’t do enough. WE NEED MORE GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION! Here’s her official statement (bold mine)… “The April jobs report numbers show some promising news, yet these gains hide the true weight of the economic uncertainty felt by millions of hard-working Americans. Unfortunately, the evidence shows that most of the economic gains continue to benefit those already well-off. We must do more to ensure that the economy is benefiting every family in every community, and that all Americans have the opportunity to move ahead in our economy. “Republicans’ shameful special interest agenda continues to undermine the health and financial security of middle class families across the country. This week, two years after House Republicans celebrated their vote to pass the outrageous Trumpcare bill, we still see the devastating impact of the GOP’s continuing health care sabotage. As the Administration continues its monstrous legal campaign to destroy pre-existing condition protections and every benefit provided by the Affordable Care Act, House Democrats are working on taking decisive action to lower health costs and…
