Republicans seem willing to accept a national emergency declaration because of impasse in negotiations. If they don’t stand up to Trump, they will rue this day. A future Democratic president could use the power to impose all kinds of progressive priorities pic.twitter.com/WiRR93dU3R

Looking ahead here:
Under Title II of the National Emergencies Act, Congress can vote on rejecting the President's declaration of an emergency, and that vote cannot be subjected to a filibuster in the Senate. (50 USC 1622 (c))

Analysis: Does Trump really have "absolute power" to declare a national emergency? Let’s examine the statute. https://t.co/pzWNy6D8vt

Folks in DC (for starters). If Trump goes full autocrat tomorrow and declares an emergency to make the military perform civilian functions in defiance of the Congress and the constitution, be ready to protest.

TRUMP: "They drive, they just go where there's no security, fencing or walls of any kind, they just make a left into US & they come in and they have women tied up, they have tape over their mouths, electrical tape. Powerful stuff. Not good."

Jeremy Corbyn says the real divide is many/few not remain/leave. But remain v leave has CRITICAL impact on many/few divide. Leave is a sluice gate to a more unequal and poorer Britain. There is no #brexit for the many.

Extraordinary to hear @Keir_Starmer point out how nobody in govt has tried to talk to him about Brexit. He thought somebody might give him a ring to see what they could broadly agree on – but nothing.
