Trump suggests he will declare national emergency over border wall

Speaking to reporters at a White House anti-human-trafficking event on Friday, Trump said there was a "good chance" he would make such a declaration during his State of the Union address on Tuesday. "I think there's a good chance that we'll have to do that. But we will at the same time be building, regardless, we're building a wall. And we're building a lot of wall. But I can do it a lot faster the other way." "Well, I'm saying listen closely to the State of the Union. I think you'll find it very exciting," Trump said when asked again about the same issue. The declaration, which he has threatened for weeks, could help free up billions of dollars in construction money for the wall. The president had made similar comments earlier in an interview with The New York Times published Thursday. "I'll continue to build the wall and we'll get the wall finished," he said. "Now whether or not I declare a national emergency -- that you'll see." On January 25, Trump signed legislation to temporarily end the longest government shutdown, dropping his previous insistence on immediate funding for wall construction. The spending bill Trump and Democrats agreed to does not contain the $5.7 billion he needs for the wall. The president's comments on Friday came a day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said there was not going to be any wall money in any deal congressional negotiators reach to avert another government shutdown. Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Pelosi said she would allow a vote on any agreement the conference committee reaches in the next few weeks, but, "There’s not going to be any wall money in the legislation.” In his Tuesday address, Trump will also talk about areas where Republicans and Democrats may be able to find agreement, a senior White House official told Reuters. "Together we can break decades of political stalemate, we can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future. The decision is ours to make," Trump will say.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
