President Donald Trump said Friday that he does not intend to declare a national emergency “so fast,” despite his evident recent delight in threatening to do so.
“I’m not going to do it so fast,” Trump told the White House press pool. “We want Congress to do its job. What we’re not looking to do right now is national emergency.”
He said as recently as Friday morning that he “can’t imagine any reason” why he shouldn’t declare national emergency to get his wall funding.
