Did you know that to build the Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, Trump essentially sold $650 million in bonds? He describes himself as such a successful businessman, but after watching Trump: Made in America on Netflix, it is becoming increasingly clear that everyone was convinced he was done for during the 1990s. He had to sell multiple casinos in Atlantic City, not to mention his personal life. How important do you think his characterization of himself as a successful businesman was in his 2016 victory?

Donald Trump declaring a national emergency is a horrible abuse of power. Our founding fathers put a division of powers in the constitution to prevent something like this from happening. The Department of Justice has sent a warning to the Trump administration that the president’s emergency declaration will most likely get blocked by the courts. There has been 16 states so far to file a lawsuit against the Trump Administration to challenge the emergency. The house voted 245-182 to overturn the presidents declaration. Thirteen republicans joined the democrats in that vote. Next the issue will go to the senate. If it passes the senate then it will go to the president. The president says he will veto it. In the event of a veto two thirds would be needed in each chamber to override the veto. In the meantime we have to come together as American people and bridge the divide of political parties to save America. What do you think the final result will be? Do you think the declaration of a national emergency was an abuse of power?
