Moments after declaring a national emergency — to circumvent Congress for border wall money — President Donald Trump admitted that he “didn’t need to do this”:
I went through Congress and made a deal. I got almost $1.4 billion when I wasn’t supposed to get one… I’m not happy with it. I got billions of dollars for other things, port of entries, lots of other things, purchase of drug equipment, more than we were even requesting.
On the wall, they skimped. I can do the wall over a longer period of time. I didn’t need to do this. But I want to do it much faster.
