By Charlie Spiering

President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency Friday to address the border crisis, allowing him to move outside of Congress to build border barriers.

“We’re going to confront the national security crisis on our border,” Trump announced in the Rose Garden. “And we are going to do it one way or the other. We have to do it.”

Trump previewed the legal fight to declare the emergency, citing previous presidents using the designation.

“I’m going to be signing a national emergency, and it’s been signed many times before. … there’s rarely been a problem,” he said. “They sign it, and nobody cares.”

He said that the decision was “very simple” and would help stop the crisis at the border.
