US President Donald Trump is not yet ready for the imposition of a "National emergency", the construction of the wall on the border to Mexico. He had the right to do so, but he's not "going to do it so quickly," Trump said on Friday at the White house in Washington. He wanted that the Congress do its Job. That's why he wanted to impose at the Moment still no "state of emergency". If Congress does not access to the funds for the wall, some will he to the measure. He would not do it but rather, he added.
In recent days, Trump had threatened on several occasions with the step.

Since it is not on time a budget law, it was decided, since the 22. December a budget freeze for several ministries. Trump wants to agree to a new law only if it provides for expenditures in the amount of 5.7 billion dollars for the construction of the border wall. The Democrats rely on their votes Trump in Congress refuse vehemently.
The Situation is deadlocked, the last tip meeting between the two sides burst. Therefore, it seemed increasingly more likely that Trump could do with the imposition of the "National emergency" Seriously. The Democrats have threatened for this case with resistance, the matter could deal with the courts and the government a tough legal battle bring.
