Trump has said he is considering declaring a "national emergency" over the wall stalemate that has partially closed the federal government for more than three weeks.
"I will build a great, great wall on our southern border", he declared on June 16, 2015 at Trump Tower in NY.
While scientists warn that the climate crisis will continue to cause increasingly damaging weather events and disasters in USA communities, President Donald Trump made clear Friday his focus on a separate, invented "crisis" as he ordered officials to consider redirecting billions of dollars in disaster relief funds to pay for a wall at the southern US border. "We shouldn't have to", Trump told reporters. When Pelosi replied "no", Trump by his admission put his hands up in exasperation and said "bye bye".
According to the Associated Press, the White House asked the Army Corps of Engineers to examine its budget, including $13.9 billion in emergency funds, to determine how much money it could spend to help build the wall Trump promised his supporters.
Trump, visiting McAllen, Texas, and the Rio Grande to highlight what he says is a crisis of drugs and crime, said that "if for any reason we don't get this going" - an agreement with House Democrats who have refused to approve the $5.7 billion he demands for the wall - "I will declare a national emergency". He claimed his lawyers told him the action would withstand legal scrutiny "100 percent".

Graham sounded deflated after talks among senators essentially collapsed, and said, "It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers" to fund wall construction.
Still, he declared: "A wall works". But the administration points to an uptick of illegal border crossing apprehensions in recent months as evidence. Across the street, a smaller group chanted back: "Build that wall!"
The president stalked out of a meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday as efforts to end the shutdown fell into deeper disarray.
Republicans are trying to decouple the shutdown, now in its 20th day, from the feud between Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the border wall.
