Jan 12, 2019, 01:30
Ron DeSantis said Friday he hadn't talked to his political ally Donald Trump about reports the president might attempt to tap into disaster aid earmarked for Florida, Puerto Rico and other areas to build a wall on the Mexican border.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he wouldn't bring up any bills the president wouldn't sign.

Trump delivered a prime-time address to the nation on Tuesday night where he warned of a "crisis" at the southern border with Mexico, and on Thursday, he made a visit to the border.

According tothe Associated Press, the White House asked the Army Corps of Engineers to examine its budget, including $13.9 billion in emergency funds, to determine how much money it could spend to help build the wall Trump promised his supporters.
Some see an emergency declaration as a face-saving way out of the spending stalemate that has shuttered parts of the federal government for the last three weeks. In any case, it was nearly certain to trigger an immediate court challenge from Democrats, including an accusation of trying to circumvent Congress' power over the national purse strings. Even some of Trump's fellow Republicans in Congress have signaled worries about such an action.
"I think the House would for sure. It's a bad precedent", Republican Senator Chuck Grassley said on CNBC.
Before the shutdown began, Trump said he would be "proud" to close the government over the issue of border security and would not blame Democrats, although he later did.
