My initial assessment is that what Pres. Trump announced is legal. Whether or not it should be legal is a different matter. Congress has been ceding far too much power to the exec. branch for decades. We should use this moment as an opportunity to start taking that power back.
Whatever your politics, every American should worry about a President inventing a fake emergency to bypass Congress. This is a dangerous precedent and blatant attack on our democracy and rule of law. #FakeTrumpEmergency
