BINGO! I dont know why Republicans are always worried that they will set a precedent that opens the door for dems to use the same action for evil (e.g., fretting over using the nuclear option, and now this). Dems are going to do whatever they can to push their vile agenda, and thinking instead that they are these innocent rule followers who will only bend the rules if big bad Republicans do it first is absurd.
Trump also needs to start hammering home this question: Why are democrat politicians, sworn to protect and defend the Constitution and thereby to protect the nation against invasion, NEGOTIATING over whether and to what extent they will fulfill their duty to protect the country? If I were Trump, I would declare the emergency and then proceed to ignore any court that tried to interfere. The resulting contrast between Trump proceeding to install defenses to stop the illegal invasion, and the dems using every trick in the book to keep the country open to invasion (in direct violation of their oath of office) would be devastating for the dems if relentlessly presented to the public.
That’s a VERY good point and very true. Thank you!
