Washington D.C.- While the government shutdown enters its day 21 without an end in sight, president Donald Trump returned to his Twitter account, to talk about border security and the wall. In the process he went on attacking the “Fake News Media”, and the democrats.

"Humanitarian Crisis at our Southern Border. I just got back and it is a far worse situation than almost anyone would understand, an invasion! I have been there numerous times - The Democrats, Cryin’ Chuck and Nancy don’t know how bad and dangerous it is for our ENTIRE COUNTRY...." wrote the president. 

According to media outlets with sources inside the White House, the president and his administration are preparing to declare a national emergency. That way, the president could circumvent Congress, and take unilateral action, to construct the border wall.

"...The Steel Barrier, or Wall, should have been built by previous administrations long ago. They never got it done - I will. Without it, our Country cannot be safe. Criminals, Gangs, Human Traffickers, Drugs & so much other big trouble can easily pour in. It can be stopped cold!" the president went on. 

"The Fake News Media keeps saying we haven’t built any NEW WALL. Below is a section just completed on the Border. Anti-climbing feature included. Very high, strong and beautiful! Also, many miles already renovated and in service!", ended Trump, whit an image of the fence inside the tweet.  

Democrats have said that should Trump declare a national emergency to fund his wall, they will challenge him in the courts. What is not clear is if once the emergency is declared, the government will open, and the 800,000 employees without a paycheck today, will start receiving their salary again.
