Schiff: If Trump Declares a Nat’l Emergency It Will Fail in the Courts

‘This has simply got to stop’

EXCERPT:

CAMEROTA: "I want to talk to you about the government shutdown. What do you think of the possibility that President Trump declares a national emergency?"
SCHIFF: "Well, I think it will fail in the courts. Certainly if President Truman couldn’t nationalize the steel industry at a time of war during the Korean War to help in the war effort then this artificial crisis of the president isn’t going to justify his appropriating money for a wall that Congress is unwilling to give.”
