Update 2: Confirming that CNN was yet again fake news, moments ago the White House reported that, as McConnell said, President Trump will support the bipartisan spending bill that would avert another partial federal government shutdown, and will declare a national emergency to get more funding for his border wall.

“President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action – including a national emergency – to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders says in a statement.

“The President is once again delivering on his promise to build the wall, protect the border, and secure our great country.”

Meanwhile, as expected, the Democrats were up to arms, with House majority leader Nancy Pelosi immediately warning that she will review “legal options” if Trump declares an emergency, and Trump’s decision should be met with unease.

  1. White Scooter Trash

    The congressional funding bill to keep the federal government operating beyond February 15 includes a classic diversionary tactic. While the House and Senate conferees have everyone focused on the $1.375 billion allocated for construction of a portion of the border wall (sold as a huge concession by the Democrats), the bill contains a perpetual illegal alien amnesty.
