    It won't matter. Exhibit A for any lawyer suing Trump in this case is him saying "I didn't have to do this....". 3D chess, baby.

    In the end, he's a giant [ussy pay]. He'll piss and moan, but will give in and we avoid a constitutional crisis.

    Wait until a healthcare national emergency is declared.

    Anyone that believes in separation of powers doesn't like it.

    Fixed.

    Just another step towards autocracy. And his minions cheered with glee...

    Exactly. Things that are pressing issues but not national emergencies will be lumped into national emergencies because of this precedent

    You kinda missed my point. I’m talking about the people who want it

    Call me naive, but I believe that Congress will finally grow a pair and kill this thing asap. They still have oversight, they just have to exercise it.

    Twitter is a political cesspool.

    Trump is exercising his power, and the power that Congress has permitted him to have and wield.

    If Congress doesn’t like it, they can win a majority of votes in both houses to stop it.

    If they win a majority of votes in both houses, Trump will veto it (he’s made this clear, today).

    Congress can then override his veto via a super majority in both houses.

    This is both a complete separation of powers, and the very definition of checks and balances.
