Outlined in the National Emergencies Act of 1976, the president has the authority to declare emergencies, thus unlocking certain provisions, when the country is ‘threatened by crisis, exigency, or emergency circumstances’ other than wars or natural disasters, a 2007 report from the Congressional Research Service (CRS) explains,” Fox News reported. “Some of those provisions include the ability to seize commodities or property; control production, transportation, and communication; institute martial law or restrict travel, according to the report.”
President Trump’s plans to declare a national emergency in order to fund his long-promised border wall will enable his administration to move $8 billion from various federal agencies to fund the project, a senior administration official told Fox News late Thursday … The news comes as Trump is expected to sign a House border security package that provides $1.4 billion for the project, which is far below the $5.7 billion Trump insisted he needed and would finance just a quarter of the 200-plus miles he wanted to be defended against illegal immigrants.
But it seems that Ann Coulter doesn’t trust Trump’s plan and even attacked every supporter of our President!
Just before midnight this Thursday, Coulter retweeted a post from Conservative Review senior editor Daniel Horowitz who seemingly praised Trump’s strategy, saying that the goal of declaring a national emergency “is to end illegal immigration and cartel smuggling.”
In her retweet, Coulter took issue with Horowitz’s assessment.
“No, the goal of a national emergency is for Trump to scam the stupidest people in his base for 2 more years,” she tweeted.

I am not sure what she expects him to do. She wants another shut down just to make a point. I think this is a master political move. He will get the money and if it takes time his base will see the Democrats exactly what they are, Obstructionists! The crazy libs will never give him the money, this is the only way. Ann should be condemning the Republican Congress who did nothing for 2 years. They could have avoided this whole mess.
