United States President Donald Trump is said to be ready to declare a ‘national emergency’ over the Mexico border wall.

Trump may have the power to issue an ‘executive action’ to get the $5.7bn he wants to build the wall. The Democrat party have so far refused to concede on the money issue, and have denied the funding.

But if he does invoke such action, Democrats will likely challenge it on constitutional grounds.

House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi is rumored to be weighing her options to thwart Trump’s plans if the President does go ahead with the executive order.
