House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) shot down President Donald Trump’s move on Friday to declare a national emergency at the southern border as “unlawful,” saying it’s unconstitutional. However, she’s fundraising off it. – The Conservative
Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) joined together to battle against Trump’s executive action.
“The president’s unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist does great violence to our Constitution and makes America less safe, stealing from urgently needed defense funds for the security of our military and our nation,” they wrote in a joint statement.
- ‘Does violence to our Constitution’? I assume they mean destroys it? They were never concerned about the Constitution during the 8 years of violation during the Obama administration.
- ‘Makes America less safe, stealing from the defense funds for security of our military and our nation’? THE PURPOSE OF THE EMERGENCY DECLARATION is to secure our border and this nation, and for the safety of the troops and Border Patrol at our border. Their argument is lame and contradicting. These idiots nearly prove Trumps case of the necessity of the emergency order. Trump faced tougher opponents in the business world than he does in his presidency. Pelosi and Schumer aren’t much of a challenge.
