Progressive-Democrats in Congress are threatening President Donald Trump with “precedents” if he doesn’t withdraw his declaration of a national emergency over the crisis on our southern border.
I will come into office with a strong belief that climate change is a national emergency, that the fact that so many people in this country die because of gun violence, that is a national emergency….
Senator and Progressive-Democratic Party Presidential candidate Kamala Harris:
It’s time we address the actual emergencies plaguing our nation: gun violence, lack of access to health care, and climate change.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D, CA):
The one-year anniversary of another manifestation of the epidemic of gun violence in America. That’s a national emergency.
Senators and Progressive-Democratic Party Presidential candidate and possible candidate Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown insist that
Gun violence is a real national emergency
and Senator Chris Murphy (D, CT) is threatening to use a national emergency declaration to ban “assault” weapons.
The thing is, the next Progressive-Democratic President will do these things, anyway; there’s no real concern for precedent here. Ex-President Barack Obama’s (D) unprecedented Pen-and-Phone as substitute for Congress has already set that particular precedent, and the current Progressive-Democratic Party leadership, with their threats if they don’t get their way, are confirming that the precedent already exists.
As if they need a precedent to do their trick.
