Trump national emergency is dumb to me because you declared it just for you to get sued and not finish through. Also when he wants to run again in 2020 hes not going to win because its going to show to the people that voted for him that he has no power to get things done.The emergency is also unnecessary because at the end of the day its not 100% that the wall will be built so hes waisting the military's time.

In my opinion President Trump is going lose the fight and lose in court. The wall will not get built on the boarder. Trump shall not get his way and won't be reelected in 2020.

In my opinion the supporters of trump i going to look at hispanics different.But also trump is trying to build a wall because he thinks illegal immigrant bring in drugs and violent when it might be some but not all.I think the wall might get started but not get completely build.
2/15/2019 10:18:54 am
trump mad dumb if he think that "wall" is going to e built because his 'supports " that had voted for him are now saying they shouldn't have voted for him cause of the last shutdown . He's bluffing and not making any sense . Also there's no point on declaring a national emergency at the bored if it's not gonna be finished .

Today, Donald Trump decided to announce that he signed for a national emergency. He signed it because the government shutdown didn't help him at all to receive money for the wall so he turned to his next option. I don't think the building for the wall is a national emergency because there isn't anything too severe happening where the country is falling apart because of the "invaders". I think this is a bad decision because he is making everyone in the country more angry. Especially the people who will be building the wall, which is the armed forces. They called it “utterly disrespectful”. He is going to be facing a lot of legal challenges and it will be very messy.

Donald Trump is going to declare a national emergency for the border wall. He is also saying that we are getting invaded. People are going to sue him because there is a power struggle and he just can't order a national emergency

Trump signs a bill saying that he will keep the government open and he declared a national emergency for the wall to be built. I think that the wall will start to get built, but won't get completed. I don't think the wall will get finished because, the President promised for the wall to be built in the beginning of his terms and he is barely getting it built a year before we elect another president. The next President can come in and stop the wall being built even if Trump gets re-elected, he will be out of presidency before the wall is close to being finished.

President Trump declared national emergency because so we could start building the boarder. The wall is unneeded because drugs and terrorist wont stop. Mexico isn't the only place where terrorist comes from, most of the terrorist from 911 came from Canada so there wouldn't be any actual help for the wall to reduce those devastators. The untied states is one of a hand full of many other countries who carries thousands of drugs and there cant really be anything done to stop it. so the wall will be pointless and unnecessary.
2/15/2019 10:39:31 am
president trump declares national emergency at the border because he wants us to build the wall. In my opinion i feel like the wall wouldn't get build because many people think its no point, he said he doesn't want tourists coming in but yet they come from Canada, not mexico. If anything the wall might get built but it probably wouldn't get finished because they might force people to built it but then again wont finish

what i feel like trump is going down hill.because his Trump national emergency is unintelligent the wall take 10 year to get build that more then his stay in office.

According to February to President Trump there is an invasion in the country. He said that their is and national emergency. He is expecting to get sued. He isn't worried about getting sued because he has the government paying for a $33B for a border and $18B for a wall that isn't necessary.

In my opinion, Trump is only declaring a national emergency because the government didn't give him all the money that was needed to build the wall.I think Donald Trump will get sued for breaking the law, and he will not build the wall.

I believe that Trump is making everything diffecult. This "national emergancy" is just a excuse to bulit his wall.The wall is gonna take forver to built and once he leaves office whta is gonna happen with the wall

The event starts when Trump signs and declares a National Emergency because he has Xenophobia and thinks there is an invasion coming from the South. Then,a Democrat decided to sue him because of that and also tells more detail about Trump and his generals. Lastly, a person from the audience asks about the situation and a 2 week incident that takes place near Trump.

Trump is full of sh**. That man know building that wall will not work. Not even shutting the government down helped with the wall. Even if it was possible for Trump to builded that wall,which its not..so he should stop trying. Don't bit off more than you can chew,trump!
2/15/2019 11:59:12 am
In my opinion, i think it's dumb to delcare a national emergency b/c trump just want money to build his wall. It seems to me that his wall is more important then what going on in his country. It also seems that Trump knows that there won't be no wall built b/c the government won't give him no money for the wall. but yet he wants to find a way to built it , for my point of view i think he like oh well if the government won't help me with the wall then i'll find a way myself.

In my opinion, President Trump is doing all of this building walls and getting information about immigrants are criminals in orders to get supports to have the wall build. Later on the democratic and the Republican will end up Trump getting sued because its legal and he accuse the Democratic of lying.

Donald Trump is going to declare a national emergency for the border wall.Trump signs a bill saying that he will keep the government open and he declared a national emergency for the wall to be built. I think that the wall will start to get built, but won't get completed. The event starts when Trump signs and declares a National Emergency because he has Xenophobia and thinks there is an invasion coming from other countries.

The whole National Emergency demand is so unnecessary because shutting down the government only affects the people and not the government because they take so much without questions and without a choice and by building the wall isn't going to stop from people coming in for hospitality .
2/15/2019 12:11:23 pm
Trump is declaring a national emergency,There is no need for that,nobody is invading,he just wants to get the money for the wall,the wall will be built halfway because that money is much and can't be finished at once.
2/19/2019 08:54:55 am
trump is declaring a national emergency because he wants to build the wall at the border which is his main focus
2/19/2019 08:56:37 am
Trump declaring a national emergency will not change anything. The people coming from Mexico just want a chance at a new life. They don't want to come over and start problems because they will get deported. Whites think the Latinos is doing all the raping but it's their own race.

On presidents day 2019 sixteen states sued president Trump which is very very ironic.Along with this ongoing crisis may bring more turmoil to America.Though more people are against Trump his supporters may re-elect him and cause more trouble in America

Donald Trump Declares State of Emergency which ends up getting 16 States, Including his own, to sue him. The Fact that he has to declare a state of emergency and take resources from other states just to get his own way is completely obnoxious.
2/19/2019 08:59:30 am
In my opinion President Trump declaring emergency at the border means nothing the wall won't be built and even if they try to build it Trump won't be president anymore so the wall won't matter.

President Trump is declared a National emergency just to have an excuse to get the money for his wall. In my opinion this is a very unnecessary situation, but he just wants to build the wall he promised before he was elected President. He wants to build the wall so he can win his reelection, he knows that people won't support him if he does not build it like he said it. Although he is not getting support from the congress he still will find a way to build the wall and support his campaign.

President trump declared a national emergency on Friday and in my opinion he is really dumb because on Saturday and on Sunday and Monday he spent those three days golfing having a good time and if it was a real emergency he wouldn't have been golfing he would have been working hard to fix this crisis. And i feel its really dumb how he and his supporters can say that they took away funding from a school in Kentucky to make them feel safe instead of building them a school. And i find it really idiotic because Kentucky is nowhere near the border for him to be saying that he just shows how stupid he really is.
2/19/2019 09:01:02 am
In my opinion , Donald trump is declaring national emergency for nothing because he think people are invading like terrorists and drug but the wall wont stop that. Even shutting the government down didn't help him. So i think that "national emergency'' is a excused to try to build a wall.

President Donald Trump declared a national emergency just to build a wall.He's making things more difficult for many citizens. Many states already suid Donald trump on presidents day. I think the wall will not be build on the border.

Donald Trump declared a national emergency that wasn't really an emergency after all as he states "i am demanding an emergency but i didn't have to do it" so for that they're 1 out of 16 states that are going to sue him funny part is that they sued him the day of presidents day.
2/19/2019 09:03:14 am
California sued the president ( Donald Trump ) om presidents day. In my opinion what may happen next is that if Trump continues build the way after congress told him no they may show up and stop him while its in the middle of building or the government may shut down again. If they shut the government down again people who work for the government would not get paid. So I think this isn't called for because this doesn't really affect them it affects us.

Donald Trump declares national emergency, and by passes congress to use military funds in order to build the wall. Putting the country on national emergency is absurd, better yet taking power of his own and ignoring the congress for not consenting to the "issue". It's almost hypocritical that he makes this issue of his sound so extreme yet is not reluctant to pass his time playing golf in the face of an alleged "emergency", he said it already..he didn't have to do it, in the cases of emergencies there wouldn't be such a loose option.
Uriel Valdez P.2

Donald Trump declared a national emergency at the border and the reason was because there are "invaders in this country" so he wants to stop those people from going in. He wants this wall to protect people from immigrants, he is using kids from kentucky as an exucse to build the wall to protect them but whats actually happeing is those kids arent getting money to build schools. I think this is a dumb thing that he is doing and he has no good reason to do this and what I think may happen next is that he will get what he wants and he will get all the money to build the wall.

Today, Donald Trump chose to report that he marked for a national crisis. He marked it on the grounds that the administration shutdown didn't help him at all to get cash for the divider so he swung to his next alternative. I don't think the working for the divider is a national crisis in light of the fact that there is nothing too extreme happening where the nation is breaking apart in light of the "trespassers". I think this is a terrible choice since he is making everybody in the nation increasingly furious. Particularly the general population will's identity constructing the divider, which is the military. They called it "absolutely ill bred". He will be confronting a ton of lawful difficulties and it will be exceptionally muddled.
2/19/2019 11:13:33 am
President Trump declared national emergency to build the wall and is being sued by states in the U.S. What i think will happen next is more states will start suing the president and later on the president will start to build the wall.
2/19/2019 11:16:30 am
Donald Trump decided to announce that he signed for a national emergency.I don't think the wall will get finished because, the President promised for the wall to be built in the beginning of his terms and he is getting it built a year before we elect another president.Therefore i feel like he has had all of this planned out.

" California joins states suing Trump over emergency declaration" LA TIMES mainly talks about how Trump wants to build that wall no matter whom or from where he gets the money , obviously not caring if he has support by any states or someone else and of course no harsh feelings at all to who it affects to. In my opinion I believe that Trump would not stop what hes doing until he has or processed to build the wall he wants to build. I also believed that many colored races would be a serious danger to Trump making him think that the wall should be build to not let any more races enter the US illegally.

Donald Trump declared a national emergency in order to build a wall because he claimed there is an invasion in the United states.Donald trump know that building the wall is unnecessary but still stands on his decision to build it even when the congress are against it.16 states including California sued him because they think its unconstitutional.

trump is declaring a national emergency so he could get his wall build. he is planning on getting money from many country's just for his wall. and many country's are now suing him for what he's going to do.
2/19/2019 11:49:16 am
In my opinion president trump will win the 2020 election because people dont see what hes doing and there not going to see until its to late .
2/19/2019 11:50:07 am
My opinion on this is that people are so ignorant on what happens. This can make our economic go down. Our rate if immagration decreased and hes trying to waste money for nothing. People want to help build a wall and stop building schools so whats the point. This is ignorant because kids need there education. Why do this if we don feel safe
2/19/2019 11:50:22 am
Trump is declaring a national emergency because he is mad that he did not receive the millions of dollars that he asked for the wall. He is abusing of his power and is going against Congress doing whatever he wants. For example, calling out the national emergency he mentioned that he did not have to do it, but yet it is happening right now. In conclusion if the national emergency continues the wall is not going to be built due to the amount of money being lost once again due to Trumps actions.
2/19/2019 11:51:41 am
Trump is declaring a national emergency that doesn't make sense. He is also getting sued by some states. For example, " California joins states suing Trump over emergency declaration" LA Times paper. This shows how states don't agree with Trump. How they are all going against him.
2/19/2019 01:52:17 pm
Donald Trump had three lawsuits filed against him. There has been tons of people challenging his declaration at the boarder and there wasnt a need for it. I hope the wall isnt approved but on the other hand it may be another shutdown.
2/19/2019 01:53:00 pm
In short, the event that just transpired was President Donald Trump using his power to declare a national emergency. He used this to build his wall, but not everyone is fond of it. California along with 15 other states have sued the Trump administration deeming his use of power to be unconstitutional. So where does this leave us? This leaves the United States in a strange problem. I don't believe California will let the wall be built. And Trump will continue to bolster the phrase, "Build the wall."

my thoughts about how Donald Trump shut down the government for a long period of time is that he is absolutely outrageous. Trump is being childish with shutting down the government because it affects so many government workers. Trump is doing all this just for a stupid wall, a 5 billion wall that won't change anything. If this happens again, i think that america will realize that trump should definitely not be president.

Donald Trump declared National Emergency at the border because he wants funds for the wall he wants to build. The reason he wants to build a wall in the US-Mexican border is because he doesnt want immigrants in the United States. Congress didnt give him the funds for the wall in the first Government Shutdown so he threatened to declare National Emergency until he got the funds needed for the wall which is about 15 billion dollars going to waste because it wont help on the issue of immigration.
2/19/2019 02:20:42 pm
Trump is declaring a national emergency on building the wall, is he is ridiculous. I believe that the wall should be the peoples choice not just his, the majority of the people in the United States doesn't want this wall to be built because if they did then trump would have the money to do it so it shouldn't be built. I think that people would start to feel held hostage and the people running from their poor country would have nowhere to go.

Based on this cartoon, I see Trump surrounded by a brick wall shaped like the U.S. while he's holding a scraper as if he's the one building it. I don't think this representation is accurate since everyone knows he won't be the one building it but the one demanding for it to be done. This action is very selfish and inappropriate because by doing this he's showing what kind of president he is. He is a president that is close minded and stubborn the fact that he also shut down the government to get what he wants shows a lot. He's mainly blaming a whole race and country for something that a couple people of that race did that wasn't okay, this is called collective punishment. This country deserves way better.
6/6/2019 03:01:08 pm
President's national Emergency at the boarder is just to get people's attention and his supporter who are too blind and ignorant to see the truth. Therefore leading up to my question, what's the need for the national emergency? Instead of trying to distract us from the actual national emergency, the one where the president of the United States might be a spy for the Russians, winning due to a fixed election, someone who plans to stay in office for more than two terms. If thats not the national emergency that everyone is so concerned about. Then I don't want to hear it.
6/7/2019 08:17:45 am
i feel like President trump doesnt do anything for the befit of the contry he just does it so he can he the things that will help him more than it does to help the contry.
6/7/2019 08:39:04 am
In my opinion , Donald trump is declaring national emergency for nothing because he think people are invading for terrorism and drug but the wall wont stop that. And he also stop the government because no one gave him money to built a bigger wall i think that childish.
