US President Donald Trump is threatening to declare a state of national emergency to get enough money to build a wall along the Mexican border. Trump is angry the Congress has only approved a quarter of the funds he wants for the wall. Declaring a state of emergency would give him direct access to funds. The bill approved by both parties in the House of Representatives and the Senate also avoids another federal government shutdown. But would declaring a state of emergency be an abuse of executive power to circumvent the legislature?
