Top comment on a Fox News post about Trump agreeing to temporarily end the shutdown without wall funding. Yeah... weren't they just going on last week about how Trump needs the wall and they stand behind the shutdown until he gets the money?Thank God that we have a great and an amazing President,who is the most effective,trying tirelessly to rebuild America despite the obstacles from the left who is trying viciously and constantly to undermine his accomplishments.Donal J. Trump is one of the best in the modern history and capable to do the impossible.America is standing strong behind the President at any time.I will definitely vote for him again
these are nice
I'm not so sure that it isn't a good thing if he does it. The National Emergencies Act is stupid and should be scrapped or reformed, and this is almost a perfect situation to get that ball rolling.Senate Republicans appear to be in a panic about President Trump’s threat to declare a national emergency to realize his unquenchable fantasy of a big, beautiful wall on the southern border. Republicans are reportedly worried that such a move could divide them, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has delivered that warning to Trump in private conversations.
Republicans have good reason to be deeply nervous. Here’s why: According to one of the country’s leading experts on national emergencies, it appears that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) can trigger a process that could require the GOP-controlled Senate to hold a vote on such a declaration by Trump — which would put Senate Republicans in a horrible political position.
Elizabeth Goitein, who has researched this topic extensively for the Brennan Center for Justice, tells me that if Pelosi exercises this option, it will ultimately require the Senate to vote on it in some form as well. The NEA stipulates that if one chamber (Pelosi’s House) passes such a resolution, which it easily could do, the other (McConnell’s Senate) must act on it within a very short time period — forcing GOP senators to choose whether to support it.
Alternatively, Goitein notes, the Senate could vote not to consider that resolution or change its rules to avoid such a vote. But in those scenarios, the Senate would, in effect, be voting to greenlight Trump’s emergency declaration.

I'm something of a nut about accuracy in reporting, regardless the type of media. I even question my own beliefs and premises. I work at it. And I'm not even sure if this is an answer to your question.
