President Trump declares national emergency over border wall – BBC News President Trump declares national emergency over border wall – BBC NewsBefore we begin I’d like to just say that we have a large team of very talented people in China, we’ve had a negotiation going on for about 2 days. It’S going extremely well. Who knows what that means, because it only matters if we get it done, but we’re very much working very closely with China and president. She who I respect a lot very good relationship that we have and we’re a lot closer than we ever were in this country. With having a real trade deal with covering everything all of the points that people have been talking about for years, it said couldn’t be done whether it was theft or Anythink Anythink. The unfairness we’ve been losing on average 375 billion dollars a year with China. Lot of people think it’s 506 million. Some people think it’s much more than that going to be leveling the playing field. The tariffs are hurting China very badly. They don’t want them in. Frankly, if we can make the deal at be my honor to remove them, but otherwise we’re having many billions of dollars pouring we’ve never had that. Before with John, it’s been very much of a one-way street, so that’s happening and their relationship with John is very good, but I think they finally respect our country. They haven’t respected us not for a long time the UK and the us, as you probably have been seeing and hearing we’re, agreeing to go forward and preserve our Trade Agreement. You know the situation with respect to brexit and the complexity and the problems, but we have a very good trading relationship with UK and that’s just been strengthened further. So with the UK we’re continuing trade and we are going to actually be increasing its very substantially as time goes by. We expect that the UK will be very, very substantially increased, as it relates to trade with you. It states the relationship. There also is very good. We have a lot of great announcements having to do with Syria and our success with the eradication of the caliphate and that’ll, be it text over the next 24 hours and many other things. A lot of positive things are going on with working on a summit, and you know all about the summit it’ll be in Vietnam, Hanoi and we will will be meeting at annoy. I think a lot of you will be going. I suspect – and I hope we have the same good luck as we had in the first time. A lot was done in the first summit. No more Rockets stop no more missiles going up; no more testing of nuclear get back. Our Remains the remains of our great heroes from the Korean War and we got back our hostages, but we we’re going to be very much equally as successful I’m in no rush the speed we just don’t want testing the sanctions, as you know, remain. Everything is remaining. China’S been helping us and Russia has been helping, add South Korea. I think you can save, has been we’ve been working very closely with South Korea with Japan, but the China, Russia, on the border, have really been at least partially living do what they supposed to be doing, and that’s okay, as per the United Nations. So we will have a meeting on the 27th and 28th of February and I think that will be a very successful and I look forward to seeing chairman Kim. We have also established a very good relationship, which is never happened between him or his family. In the United States they have really taken advantage of the United States. Billions Alex has been paid to them and we we won’t let that happen. But we think that North Korea and German Kim have a tremendous potential as an economic, forsake, anomic power, their location between South Korea and then Russia and China right smack in the middle is phenomenal and we think they have a great chance for economic prosper in the Future I look forward to seeing chairman Kim in Vietnam today I’m announcing several critical actions that my Administration is taking to confront a problem that we have right here at home. We fight Wars that a6000 the way Wars that we should have never been in. In many cases, but we don’t control our own border, so we’re going to confront the National Security crisis on our Southern border and we’re going to do it one way or the other app to do it, not because it was a campaign promise which it is was One of many by the way., My only one we’re rebuilding the military. Our economy is thriving like never before you look at other economies, they’re doing terribly and we’re doing phenomena. The market is up tremendously today. Not that that’s anything, but you know cuz I’ll, go back in and they’ll say or the market just went down, but the market is getting close to the new highs that we created. We we have all the records we free record, but we getting close to that point again will create new record, so our country is doing very well economically and we’re done a lot. But what are the things I said? I have to do what I want to do is border security, because we have tremendous amounts drugs flowing into our country, much of it coming from the southern border. When you look and when you listen to politicians in particular Port of Entry, it’s wrong! It’S wrong! It’S just a lie: it’s all a lie, they say: Willis, don’t work, walzwerk 100 %, whether it’s El Paso. I really was smiling because the other night I was in okay. We had a tremendous crowd and tremendous growth and I asked the people, many of whom were from El Paso, but they came from All Over Texas and I asked him I said: let me ask you the as a proud when the wall was it better. You you were there, some of you, it was not only better, it was like a hundred percent better. You know what they did, but that’s only one example. There are so many examples. They have close to 2,000 murders right on the other side of the wall and they had 23 murders. It’S a lot of murders, but it’s not close to 2,000 murders right on the other side of the wall in Mexico. So everyone knows that was work and they’re. Better examples than El Paso, frankly, you just take a look almost everywhere. Take a look at Israel. They’Re building another wall, ineffective, 8lb, 99.9 % that it would be with us to the only weakness. Is they go to a wall, and then they go around the wall that go around the wall and then okay, that’s what it is very simple: on a big majority of the big drugs, a big drug loads, don’t go through ports of Entry. They can’t go through ports of Entry. You can’t take big lots of people, have some very capable people, the border patrol law enforcement. Looking you can’t take human trafficked, women and girls. You can’t take them through ports of Entry, can have them tied up in the back seat of a car or truck or van. They open the door. They look if they can’t see three women with tape on their mouth. Three: women whose hands are tied. They go through areas where you have no wall, everybody knows that Nancy knows it Chuck knows it. They all know it. You don’t have to be very smart to know you put up a barrier, the people come in and that’s it. They can’t do anything unless they walk left or right and they fight Meriwether’s no battery and they come into the United States. Welcome we’ve detained more people. Are border agents are doing such incredible work. Our military has been incredible barbed wire on top of certain old walls that were there, we fix the wall. We loaded up with Bob wire, it’s very successful, but I’m military has been fantastic and I want to thank them and it’s necessary. We broke it up to Caravans that are on their way. They just are breaking their in the process of breaking up. We have another one that we have been able to break up, yet we’ve been actually working with Mexico much better than ever before. I want to thank the president that would have thanked Mexico. They have their own problems, they have the largest number of murders that they’ve ever had in their history, almost 40,000 murders 40,000, and I got to straighten that out and I think they will. But I I want to thank the president because he’s been helping us with these monstrous Caravans that have been coming up with one of those up to over 15000 people. It’S largely broken up, others have gotten through and Tijuana. You have a lot of people staying that we didn’t have to wall up, but if we didn’t have the wall secured and strengthened as I would have walked right through that be welcome to the United States. What are the things we save tremendous at? Just a tremendous amount would be sending the military Widow what we don’t need. The military cuz would have a wall, so I’m going to be signing a national emergency. It’S been signed by other presidents from 1977, or so it gave the president’s. The power is rarely been a problem, they shine it. Nobody cares or very exciting. Nobody cares. They sign it for far less important things. In some cases, in many cases were talking about an invasion of our country with drugs with human trafficking, with all types of criminals and gangs, we have some of the greatest people. I know they’ve been with me from the beginning of my campaign. Almost for the first week the angel moms, unfortunately, we have no angel moms. One edible woman. Just showed me your daughter who was talking about kills in the year of 18. As I haven’t seen you before, she said no, I’m new, I said that’s too bad. It’S too bad, it’s so sad, shut up just for a second show how beautiful your girls was. Thank you. I have such respect for these people Angel moms Angel, dad’s Angel family. I break respect for these people. These are great people. These are great people, they’re fighting for their children that have been killed by people that were illegally in this country, and the Press doesn’t cover them, don’t want to credibly and they’re not treated the way they should be there fighting for other people cuz. They don’t want. What happened to their children or husband, or anybody? We have one young, lady husband, please stand up. Your husband was just killed in Maryland, credible man just killed Beauty. Children won’t be seeing their father again. These are brave people. These are people that they don’t have to be here. They don’t have to be doing this, they doing it for other people. So I just want to thank all of you for being here. Okay, I really do I want to thank you incredible. Last year’s 70,000 Americans were killed, at least I think the number is ridiculously Low by drugs and putting meth and heroin cocaine Fentanyl, and one of the things that I did with President XI in China when I met him and Argentina at a summit before I even Started talking about it was before I talked about braid. I talked about something more important, I said: listen, we have tremendous amounts of fentanyl coming into. Our country kills tens of thousands, the people, I think, far more than anybody registers and I’d love you to declare it a lethal drug and put it on your criminal list and that criminal. This is much tougher than our criminalist criminalist. A drug dealer gets death penalty. Drug dealer gets a thing called how about a fine and when I asked president sheet I said you have drug problem. No, no! No! I said you have 1.4 billion people. What do you mean? You have no drug problem? No, we don’t have a drug problem. I said why death penalty we give death better, do people that sell drugs into problem. What do we do? We set up a blue ribbon committee’s lovely men and women, they sit around a table to have lunch, they eat dine and they waste a lot of time. So we want to get smart wingettes where you can end a drug problem. Can I did a lot faster than you think, but president she’s agreed to put fentanyl on his list deadly deadly drugs and it’s a criminal penalty and the penalty is death. So that’s frankly, one of the things I’m most excited about in our trade deal with it truth. I think maybe there’s no more important Point. What’S going to make billions of dollars with his trade deals, going to be great for our country and great for China. I hope their markets close to 40 % or markets way up. We picked up since my election names of dollars of worth trillions, many trillions and she has lost trillions of dollars, but I wanted to be good vagina and I wanted to be good for the United States. So we’ll see what happens your next week by the way. They’Re coming home to Traders and then that China’s coming here next weekend, then I’ll be meeting with President XI at some point after that to maybe for some remaining deals will make them directly one-on-one ourselves. So we going to be signing today and registering National Emergency and it’s a great thing to do, because we have an invasion of drugs, invasion of gangs, invasion of people and it’s unacceptable that by signing the National Emergency, something I many times by other presidents. Many many times, President Obama, in fact we may be using one of the national emergencies that he signed having to do with cartels. Criminal cartels, it’s a very good emergency. use parts of it in our dealings on cartels, so that would be a second National Emergency, but in that case it’s already in place Shuffle we want to stop drugs from coming into our country. We want to stop criminals and gangs from coming into our country. Nobody’S done the job that we’ve ever done. I mean nobody’s done the job that we On the Border in a way what I did by creating such a great economy, and if the opposing party got in this economy would be down the tubes. Should I hear a lot of people say? Oh well, but baby. The preview administration of the previous administration – it was heading south and it was going fast. We would have been down the tubes. The regulations were strangling our country, unnecessary regulations, bike putting such a strong economy. You just look at your television to see. What’S going on today. Is through the roof, what happens is what people want to come, so we have far more people trying to get into our country today, then probably, we’ve ever had before, and we’ve done an incredible job in stopping that. But it’s a massive number of people. If we had the wall, it would be very easy. We would make up for the cost of the wall. Just add the cost of the fact that I would be able to have fewer people. We wouldn’t need all of this incredible Talent, some of whom were sitting in the first row. You would need all of this incredible Talent. We we get. We would get thousands of law enforcement people, including border patrol. You put them in different areas. You haven’t doing different things, law, enforcement and Border Patrol, and I want to thank law enforcement. I don’t want to thank for the patrol, and I want to thank Isis abused by the press and by the Democrats, I’m by the way we’re going to be taking care of ice talk about the the new bill, we’re going to be taking care of ice. They want device and the bill is just the opposite of that. A lot of good things happen. So that’s the story. We want to have a safe country, Iran, on a very simple slogan, make America great again if you’re going to have drugs pouring across the border. If you’re going to have human traffickers pouring across the border in areas where we have no protection in areas, what we don’t have a barrier then very hard to make America great again, but we’ve done a fantastic job, but we haven’t been given the equipment we haven’t Been given the walls and in the bill by the way they didn’t even fight us or most of the stuff ports of Entry, we have so much money, we don’t know what to do with it. I don’t know what to do with all the money they give. It’S crazy the only place I don’t want to give as much money. 1 billion 375 billion dollars sounds like a lot, but it’s not so much, although we’re putting it to much better use than it used to be a lot of the past administrations they had. It was easy to get bit in Bill where they didn’t do. What they could have done would have been great would have been great to have done it earlier. But I was a little new to the job little due to the profession, and we have a little disappointment for the first year and a half people that should have stepped up did not step up. They didn’t step up and they should have would have been easy. Not that easy, but it would have been a lot easier people didn’t step up, but we’re stepping up now. So we have a chance of getting close to 8 billion dollars, whether it’s 8 billion or 2 billion or 1 and 1/2 million it’s going to build a lot of wall, we’re getting it done, we’re right now in construction with wall and some of the most important Areas and we have renovated a tremendous amount of wall, making it just as good as new. That’S where a lot of the money has been spent on Renovations affect. We were restricted to renovating, which is okay, but we’re going to run out of areas that we could run away pretty soon so and we need new wall. So I want to thank everybody for being here, want to thank, in particular, the angel, moms and dads for being here. Thank you very much. We have great respect you. The real country are real country, the people that really love our country. They love you. So I just want you to know that I know how hard you fight and I know how a to fight you having. I also want to thank all of the law enforcement for the job. You do believe me, our country loves you and they respect you greatly and we’re giving you a lot of surplus will giving you Surplus military equipment, which a lot of people didn’t like giving previous to this Administration, but hundreds of millions of dollars of surplus equipment and, As we get it, as you know, we send it down and you’re much better protection, but I really you being here so the the order is signed and I’ll sign the final papers as soon as I get into the Oval Office, and we will have a national Emergency, we will then be sued and they will sue us in the ninth circuit, even though it shouldn’t be there and we will possibly get a bad ruling and then we’ll get another bad ruling and then we’ll end up in the Supreme Court and hopefully we’ll get A fair and will winter the Supreme Court just like the bay, they shoot us in the ninth circuit and we lost, and then we lost in the Appellate Division. And then we went to the Supreme Court and we won that. It was very because yesterday they were talking about the van cuz, we have a band. It’S very helpful, Madam Secretary, is that right without the band would have a bigger problem. We have a ban on certain area, certain countries depending on what’s going on in the world and we won, but somebody said President Trump lost on the bedroom. They were saying how I lost the person sitting right up here, Donald Trump lost on the band yeah. I did and then I lost the second time you should have said that to and then it went to the Supreme Court and I won didn’t want to take it that far, but we one of the band and we won on other things, to the probably easiest One to win is on declaring a National Emergency because we’re declaring it for virtual invasion purpose is drugs, traffickers and gangs, and one of the things just to finish. We have removed thousands of MS-13 gang monsters, thousands they’re out of this country. We take him out by the thousands and they are monsters. Okay, you have any questions. Yeah President Trump has confirmed he will use emergency powers to build a wall on the US border with Mexico, saying “walls work”.
Building the wall was a key pledge of Mr Trump’s campaign, but Democrats have described the emergency as a “gross abuse of power”.
He is due to sign the plan along with a spending bill aimed at preventing a repeat of a recent government shutdown.
He announced the plan after Congress refused to pay for a wall in the bill.
