Gaetz: Next Dem Prez Will Use National Emergency To Build Trans Bathrooms

Bill Clark/CQ-Roll Call Group

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said that he doesn’t want President Donald Trump to declare a national emergency to fund the wall because of the precedent it would set for the next Democratic President, according to a Thursday Wall Street Journal report.

“I don’t want the next national emergency to be that some Democrat President says we have to build transgender bathrooms in every elementary school in America,” Gaetz said.

Trump has been teasing the decision for days, saying Thursday that he “can’t imagine any reason” not to declare a national emergency.
