Donald Trump threatens to declare national emergency
15 January 2019 Current Affairs:

President Donald Trump has again threatened to declare a national emergency along the border with Mexico. In a fight with Democrats in Congress, Mr.Trump said funding for a wall will keep out dangerous immigrants. The Congress has now shut down parts of the government for a record-tying 21 days. 

Such a declaration, almost certain to be challenged in court, would, in theory, allow Mr. Trump to sidestep Congress and divert money from military projects toward construction of the wall that has been a core focus of his nationalist campaign. 

In preparation for the possible emergency move, the White House has asked the military to look into diverting funds currently allocated for disaster relief to the wall.
