US President Donald Trump has made come true what he had threatened for weeks: On Friday, he called the national emergency. Has he justified that during an appearance in the rose garden of the White house with a supposed crisis at the border to Mexico. "We have an Invasion of drugs, Criminals and Gangs," he said. Therefore, it is essential to build a wall.
According to the statistics of his own government, illegal immigration drops. In addition, Trump has agreed to the compromise, the Republicans and Democrats on the budget had negotiated. A new Shutdown is avoided, which would have meant that large parts of the administrative apparatus would have been shut down.
In his nearly hour-long appearance Trump constantly changed the subject. He praised his good relationship with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, he announced that soon a good Deal with China, he praised some of his favorite journalists.
the basic melody of the meandering designs of the wall, which he intends to build, however, remained. The emergency decree is intended to empower it to obtain the money without the consent of the Congress. Ahead of this appearance was gone on Friday a hectic Thursday. In the Morning, the President had not let on that he could the compromise.
Mitch McConnell, the Republican majority leader in the Senate, talked on the phone several times with a Trump to convince him that the compromise in truth is a victory to prevent. He argued that Nancy Pelosi, the democratic speaker of the house of representatives, have said their party will not make more than a billion dollars for the border security. Now, however, you have agreed to 1,375 billion dollars.
With this sum could be created at a length of only about 80 kilometers of fences along the border. This is not nearly what was promised to Trump his followers originally, namely, a solid concrete wall, which extends over the entire distance of 3144 km long border.
McConnell but wanted to make absolutely sure that the budget compromise fails, because that would have led on Friday to a renewed Shutdown. The dispute over the money for the wall was conducted in December and January to a 35-day-long Shutdown, the longest in the history. 800'000 of state were sent to officials in the forced vacation or had to work without pay. The majority of the voters had given the President and the Republicans to blame.
Pelosi brought ice cream to negotiations with
Trump had ended the Shutdown temporarily and this Friday as the date called; by then, a compromise had to be found. McConnell and Senator Richard Shelby have led the negotiations for the Republicans. On the democratic side, Nancy Pelosi was at the top. Since the Democrats in the Midterm elections last November, Robert will have the majority in the house of representatives back, grew their self-confidence. Pelosi was relaxed in the negotiations so that she once even ice cream for all brought.
trump's biggest concern was that he was deprived of his options, if he's the compromise sign. The office of the legal adviser in the White house convinced him that he could declare the state of emergency, which allow him, in turn, money in the budget at his discretion to reallocate. McConnell assured him of his support. Finally, Trump said that he was, under these circumstances, prepared to agree to the compromise.
a Big victory for Democrats
Because Trump is well-known to often act impulsively and change his mind quickly, and rushed McConnell to Trumps commitment immediately to the Senate, where he wanted to proclaim the end of the contest officially, so that there could be no going Back. It is McConnell's colleague, Chuck Grassley, has been sitting for 38 years in the Senate, said just. Grassley is a person of respect, and he likes to talk. McConnell's aides signaled that he may now be still, please, quickly to the lectern. It is not important. Grassley ignored the first, and continued talking. Finally, he made reluctant room for McConnell to complain, not without about it later, that was rude.
On the democratic side, it is considered a great victory that Trump has signed the compromise. He wanted to 5.7 billion dollars for the wall and got a quarter – as much as he could have been prior to the Shutdown in December. Nevertheless, you have held in the past few days, with cheers talk. The Washington Post told of a Democrat, the motto had been: "poke the bear." You wanted to Yes, that Trump writes.
funds from Anti-drug programmes and defence budget
the defeat of The President wants to transform by declaring a state of emergency has been declared in a victory. She allows him to bypass the Congress and get the money for the wall elsewhere. Trumps against the player, Pelosi and the head of the Democrats in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, called the abuse of the state of emergency Declaration unlawful and "a serious power".
The White house believes that Trump can get up to eight billion dollars. In addition to the almost $ 1.4 billion from the budget compromise that would be in front of all things of money from Anti-drug programs and from the budget of the Ministry of defence. With these funds, the military should begin immediately in order to build fixtures.
If it comes to that, however, is open, because a number of parliamentarians have announced legal action against the emergency decree. The state of New York did on Friday the beginning. It is well possible that the case lands in the Supreme Court. Five of the nine judges, Republicans are, however, the court has always looked with great skepticism on the efforts of presidents to bypass Congress.
As only a couple of gaps
so Far, would be because Trump has built exactly zero kilometres of wall. Nevertheless, he has this week, its Slogan, "Build the wall" (Builds changed the wall). Now it is time to "Finish the wall" (the wall finish), there's only a couple of gaps that we need to fill it.
This has to be something very Trump-Typical: Since the President could not deliver his followers to the promised wall before, he does now, just as you would be basically almost finished. (Editorial Tamedia)
