President Donald Trump, who was soon considering the longest closure of the US government, was considering declaring a national emergency that could degrade a political dispute with Democrats over the proposed US-Mexico border wall into a presidential power test. . To escape a political trap that he himself created, Trump strongly suggested on Thursday to declare an emergency in order to get around Congress and get funding for his wall, which was a central promise of his election campaign in 2016. Trump asks Congress to provide $ 5.7 billion in funds to US taxpayers for the construction of the wall. Congressional Democrats are opposed to this. They view the wall as an ineffective and outdated response to a complex problem. This impasse led to the closing of the federal government quarter and the maintenance of hundreds of thousands of federal employees at home or without pay.
