    Trump announced that he's taking declaring a national emergency off the table.

    Just 90 minutes ago, Trump announced that he no longer plans to declare a national emergency (for now)

    "Now what would happen? I'll be sued and it will be brought to the 9th Circuit, and maybe even though the wording is unambiguous, just like with the travel ban, it'll be appealed to the 9th Circuit and we'll probably lose there too, and then hopefully we'll win in the Supreme Court. So, I'd rather not do it because this is something that Congress should easily do. So what we're not looking to do right now is national emergency. What we want to do and have an absolute right to do it, in many ways it's the easy way out. But this is up to Congress and it should be up to Congress they should do it."

    Which most likely means he will announce the emergency sometimes next week.

    No doubt he is being told (by some Republicans) it will be tied up in courts and set a bad precedent for future IE: Democratic Presidents.....to use on a whim

    It was probably just a threat anyway, grasping at straws to force Congress to cave to his demands.
