Donald Trump on Friday promised, “We haven’t declared the national emergency yet, but we’re building the wall.”

Trump spoke to reporters from the White House Cabinet Room during a partially televised meeting on human trafficking on the southern border attended by Ivanka Trump and Kellyanne Conway, among others. He was keen on plugging his State of the Union speech next week, suggesting he would make some big announcement. “I’m saying, listen closely to the SOTU, I think you’ll find it very exciting,” he said.

Trump also repeatedly teased the idea of declaring a national emergency, saying, “We have very, very strong legal standing,” according to the White House pool report.

He also pointedly lamented Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s stance on the border wall being “immoral,” saying, “Honestly, I don’t think Nancy has a clue.” That’s pretty rich coming from someone who has melted into a puddle every time he’s faced off with Pelosi. #Midterms #SOTU #Shutdown

Trump also spewed a bunch of outright lies or half-truths that have either already been disproven or almost surely will be within a couple of hours from now.

  • Trump: “So we’re building the wall. … The chant now should be ‘Finish the Wall!’ because we’re building a lot of wall. And I started this six months ago …” No, they aren’t building new sections of wall.
  • Trump repeated his claim that San Diego was “begging” him to build the wall. Even the GOP mayor of San Diego opposes such a wall.
  • Trump: “Many Democrats are dying to say they want the wall but they just can’t say it.” Democrats are almost universally opposed to the wall.

  2. A national emergency declaration from President Trump could create a problem for some Senate Republicans.
    Many Republicans have made no secret of their distaste for an emergency declaration, which the president has asserted he may declare to build a border wall if he is unsatisfied with a congressional compromise on border security. Not only would the move likely get tied up in the courts, but Republicans worry that such a strong display of executive authority could establish a troubling precedent when a Democrat occupies the White House.

    So basically they couldn’t give two sh*ts about wrecking the economy by wasting billions on some stupid useless f*#king wall, it’s more like, oh no, we want to f*#k them, not have them f*#k us.
