BORDER/MEDIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “Fox News figures are sending a message to President Donald Trump: Pull the trigger on declaring a national emergency. With a little over two weeks until another possible government shutdown, multiple Fox hosts and commentators are goading the president into taking the emergency option to build a wall on the southern border, despite the political and legal risks involved…Sebastian Gorka, former deputy assistant to the president, also said Thursday on Fox News that Democrats’ efforts to stop the wall were merely politics, and pushed for a national emergency declaration…Trump told The New York Times on Thursday that the conference committee’s efforts were ‘a waste of time,’ and his advisers have been working behind the scenes to finalize a national emergency declaration so that he can move quickly if he decides to go that route. The commentary from conservatives could further push him in that direction.”
