Some of America’s most

Some of America’s most prominent newspapers quickly issued searing editorials Thursday lashing Donald Trump’s decision to declare a national emergency so he can finally build a border wall that’s supported by neither Congress nor the public.

Trump is a total embarrassment the way he just rambles on and on.
It worries me that all his rhetoric will turn Mexico into an enemy of the US and he'll push them toward becoming an ally of an unfavorable nation. We need to work with Mexico to resolve our issues, not separate us with a wall. He justifies spending $billions on the wall by using a couple of instances involving a few illegals.
