Trump Holds Back On Emergency Declaration Amid Mexico Border Wall Row

President Donald Trump reversed himself Friday, saying he would hold back from declaring a national emergency to bypass Congress and fund his controversial plan to wall off the US-Mexican border.Trump's fight with Democrats over their refusal to approve $5.7 billion for the wall project has paralyzed Washington, with the president retaliating by refusing to sign off on budgets for swaths of government departments unrelated to the row.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a result, 800,000 federal employees including FBI agents, air traffic controllers and museum staff, did not receive paychecks Friday.The three-week government shutdown was on the verge of becoming the longest on record: at midnight on Friday (0500 GMT Saturday) it will overtake the 21-day record set in 1995-1996, under president Bill Clinton.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But despite a stream of hints that he would imminently declare a national emergency and attempt to go around Congress, Trump told a White House meeting with state and local officials: "I'm not going to do it so fast."Trump described an emergency declaration as the "easy way out" and said Congress had to step up to the responsibility of approving the $5.7 billion.
