If trump can use his executive powers to declare a national emergency when none exists, and gets

away with it using it as a political tactic, then he can declare war under similar circumstances. Seeing as how the House gave up its war making powers years ago and let them accrue to the presidency we now have a madman at the wheel of a flaming school bus.

Suppose he says either Mexico pays for the wall or else! How about shutting down the media he doesn’t like?

The Democrats MUST NOT give in to this tyrant. If they do he will use this tactic again and again

1. Absolutely. I'm surprised that rump hasn't declared war on Mexico in order to get them ...

to pay for the wall. Or that he's not used executive authority to seize Mexican assets to pay for the wall.

4. If Trump declares a national emergency for this which I believe he will

then he can declare a national emergency for anything leaving little use for congress as we will be entering into a full blown dictatorship. I think the supreme court will strike it down 5 to 4, but the fact that it will be that close will be more evidence that Democrats need to reform the supreme court once they have the Presidency,Senate and Congress.
