US President Confirms using Emergency Power to build US-Mexico Border Wall

  • The US President Donald Trump has confirmed reports that he’ll use his emergency powers for building the US-Mexico border wall. He stressed on the fact that “walls work”. Building the US-Mexico border wall was one of the key pledges of Trump during his 2016 US Presidential campaign. After the news was confirmed regarding using emergency power for building the wall, Democrats have called it a “gross abuse of power”. After confirming the use of his emergency power to build the border wall, US President Trump also signed the plan along with a spending bill to ensure that a Federal government shutdown is not repeated this time. Reports say Donald Trump announced using his emergency power after the US Congress refused to allocate fund in the bill for building the wall.
