President Trump said on Friday that he “didn’t need to” declare a national emergency but did it to speed up construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
“I want to do it faster. I could do the wall over a longer period of time. I didn’t need to do this, but I’d rather do it much faster,” Trump said during a press conference at the Rose Garden in the White House.
Except that the bill he just signed will very likely be used to keep him from doing just that. He should have vetoed that POS. When Oh When will we get the line item veto for the Oval Office? I know…double edged sword but…it would have been handy this week.

He signed the bill because the votes in both Congressional bodies were higher than the votes required to override his veto.
There was no benefit from playing the part of a person who wanted to shut down the government again.
Look folks, he can’t do it alone, and we need to quit playing as if that isn’t exactly what he has to do.

This statement completely undermines any legal argument in support of a “national emergency” declaration.
“I didn’t need to do this, but I’d rather do it much faster,”
The statement Pretty much guarantees he loses. That plus he signed just a bill where he agrees not to do what the act intends. I can only think he must know this so what do we conclude from that? Nothing good.
Kolfage’s crowdfunding campaign turned him into an instant celebrity among supporters of President Donald Trump, who were frustrated as the president’s own efforts to fund the wall struggled to gain traction. But soon after the crowdfunding effort took off, Kolfage came under fire after it was revealed that before his wall campaign, he had run Facebook pages that promoted fake stories and hoaxes and raised money for a veterans’ program that never materialized.
That was not a smart thing to say.
(James Garner “Support Your Local Sheriff” voice : “Well, I’ve been watching The Darnold for two years, and I haven’t seen him do one smart thing yet.”)
He just admitted that he doesn’t really believe there is an emergency. That undermines his declaration. Dumb.
That’s going to bite him (and us) in the butt.
