Donald Trump defends emergency funding for Mexico wall President Trump has resorted to extreme measures – and risked a major constitutional crisis – to get a wall built along the border with Mexico.

Speaking at the White House he declared a national emergency, a move that will free up billions of dollars of emergency funds, but will almost certainly face a legal challenge.

It has already been described as a violation of the US constitution.

The president claims a wall was the only way to stop the US being invaded by illegal immigrants, criminals and drugs.
