Not All Conservatives Are Happy About Trump's National Emergency Declaration

President Donald Trump on Thursday signed the spending bill and decided to declare a national emergency to obtain funding for his border wall. But not everyone is excited by the news. In fact, a number of conservative commentators and talking heads took to Twitter to explain why they're opposed to Trump's national emergency declaration. The most common reason people are opposed to the news: they're afraid Democrats will utilize national emergencies in the future to push for policies they can't get through Congress. Remember, President Obama used a pen and a phone to get things done. And we don't need a repeat of that.

Republican strategist Rick Wilson went on a tangent about Trump's decision and reminded conservatives that this decision is bad for the conservative movement.

The question isn't if Democrats will now utilize this strategy and point to Trump's precedent it's a matter of when and for what issues.
