President Trump declares national emergency to build wall along US border with Mexico

President Donald Trump has announced he will declare a national emergency to build the wall along the US border with Mexico.
The construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border was one of Donald Trump's key campaign promises in 2016, but the president's definition of "the wall" has changed over time.
Last March, Trump inspected a number of wall prototypes that have been built on the outskirts of San Diego, and seemed to have definitely abandoned the idea of a concrete wall.
The Democrats failed to budge on Trump's demands for $5.7 billion in funding - even after a record 35-day federal government shutdown.
