Donald Trump stalls on promise to build a wall, have Mexico pay for it
"We're going to build a wall" - it's something we have heard US President Donald Trump say many times since he launched his presidential campaign.does how the walk like a man 1987
So the president is promising to pardon his subordinates if they have to break the law to carry out his orders to build the Big, Beautiful Wall, the latest spasm of abject lawlessness from someone whose lifelong principle is that the rules do not apply to him. This is not the best attribute to have in the world's most powerful man, particularly with a supine Congress—where one body is controlled by his lackeys and the other is run by Democrats afraid of their own shadow—and a court system increasingly stuffed full of Federalist Society dependables who can help enact conservative priorities from the bench. That's the same court system that OK'd his phony national emergency , which he admitted was phony while announcing it. This week, we are seeing the results. By declaring the emergency, Trump sought to seize funds Congress appropriated for different purposes—specifically, to the Department of Defense—and use them to build his Big, Beautiful Wall. This was an explicit response to the Legislative Branch's refusal to appropriate Wall funding. The power of the purse is the legislative branch's lever to reign in the power of the executive.
