Trump Sends Out Another Tweet on Border Wall

President Trump: Democrats do nothing to secure border, national emergency still possible First Lady’s State of the Union Guest is a Sixth-Grader Bullied Because His Last Name Is Trump

Last year, when we crossed into the Trump era, you said the state of our union was "Wiemar Republic Part 2", "surreal", "exhausted", "incomprehensible", "covfefe", and much, much more.

Two-thirds of Americans don't want Trump to declare a national emergency and 57 per cent oppose another shutdown over the wall, according to a CNN poll of 1,011 adults conducted last week and released Monday. In 2017, the Trump administration announced it was reinstating a ban on transgender people serving in the USA military.

Democrats are, quite simply, never going to budge.

A source close to Trump said the president was not expected to take that step, which likely would draw a swift court challenge from Democrats.

An emergency declaration would also be wildly unpopular-even more so than the wall itself.

But maybe the Democrats aren't his target-maybe he's trying to bluff Senate Republicans. "The state of the Trump administration is embroiled in chaos and incompetence". Even they will likely be disappointed, since Trump is likely to avoid telling this utterly false story about kidnappings at the border (apparently borrowed from the movie "Sicario: Day of the Soldado"), because it might be too easily disproved, even by Trumpian standards, in this august official setting. It's a nightmare scenario.

Trump also will address foreign policy, including support for an effort to coax Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro into leaving power and declaring the Islamic State militant group all but defeated. If they're forced to pick a side, there's really no right choice.

President Donald Trump claps during the State of the Union address in the chamber of the House of Representatives in Washington, D.C., on January 30, 2018.

Maduro accused Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, of having taken "a awful decision" in recognising Guaido. The Government, it said, will "completely revise bilateral relations with those countries from now on".

Trump Mulls Emergency Declaration to Build Border Wall
Trump is pitted between the political middle and his own base, which has embraced his demand for a border wall. Republicans in the Senate need at least seven Democrat votes to sign a spending measure.

Stacey Abrams, who lost her race past year to be governor of Georgia, will deliver the Democrats' response to Trump, making her the first African-American woman to deliver the party's rebuttal. And they can't delay-it would all have to happen in the span of a month. That is probably why McConnell has reportedly warned Trump that the move would divide and harm his own party.

Anxiety over the damage being inflicted on the party is growing.

With the budget deadline approaching and Democrats refusing to compromise on funding for a border wall, President Trump is promising to secure the border by sending thousands more soldiers in lieu of an actual barrier. They pulled Joshua out of school for home schooling at one point but made a decision to enroll him in middle school with the hope that the bullying would decrease. Conway wondered aloud Tuesday morning if Pelosi will be able to "resist the usual raised eyebrows and rolling eyes", adding: "I'm very curious to see how she's going to react, sort of when she'll applaud, when she'll stand up, when she will ... resist looking like somebody who's wearing her heart on her sleeve".

That sentiment has been expressed by about a dozen Republican senators, publicly and privately, including Roy Blunt of Missouri, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Marco Rubio of Florida, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and John Cornyn of Texas, who is considered to be among the most influential members of his party on immigration. "This is the defining moment of his presidency".

But Washington's most recent debate offered few signs of cooperation between Trump and Democrats.

Trump has also threatened to declare a national emergency, which he believes would allow him to bypass Congress and continue construction of a border wall. "I just want it to stop".

Addressing the Venezuela crisis he will say: "We stand with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom".
