President Donald Trump, on Monday morning, continues affirming his plan of declaring an emergency, if the deal with Congress on border wall is not done.

Trump quotes from Chairman of the House Armed Service Committee, saying “there’s a provision in law” for a president to declare national emergency.

Trump tweets: “Congressman Adam Smith, the new Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, just stated, “Yes, there is a provision in law that says a president can declare an emergency. It’s been done a number of times.” No doubt, but let’s get our deal done in Congress!”

“We’re looking at a national emergency because we have a national emergency,” he told reporters after returning from a staff meeting at Camp David on Sunday. “Just read the papers. We have a crisis at the border … it is national security, it’s a national emergency.”

The president said he would make a decision about the declaration in upcoming days.

Meanwhile, Trump condemns ‘dishonest news media’ who ignored jobs numbers, economic charts of the country, to report his presidency ‘as bad as possible’.  

He tweets: “With all of the success that our Country is having, including the just released jobs numbers which are off the charts, the Fake News & totally dishonest Media concerning me and my presidency has never been worse. Many have become crazed lunatics who have given up on the TRUTH!…”

U.S. employers dramatically stepped up their hiring in December, adding 312,000 jobs in an encouraging display of strength for an economy.

He continues: “The Fake News will knowingly lie and demean in order make the tremendous success of the Trump Administration, and me, look as bad as possible. They use non-existent sources & write stories that are total fiction. Our Country is doing so well, yet this is a sad day in America!”

In 2018 overall, the U.S. economy gained the strongest annual growth in over a decade, with the Gross Domestic Product likely topping 3 percent, while the nation experienced its lowest unemployment rate in nearly 50 years.

Trump concludes: “The Fake News Media in our Country is the real Opposition Party. It is truly the Enemy of the People! We must bring honesty back to journalism and reporting!”
