President to deliver prime-time address

News

WASHINGTON (WDTN) – The President will give a prime-time speech Tuesday night about border security and the ongoing government shutdown.

Dr. Mark Caleb Smith joined 2 NEWS Tuesday to discuss what viewers should expect to hear from the President.

There is speculation that Trump could potentially declare a national state of emergency in order to obtain immediate funding for the border wall.

“I hope that’s not the case. I think if President Trump declared a national state of emergency, we would have a constitutional crisis. There’s a very good chance you could see impeachment proceedings against him and I think you would see both parties probably coalesce against the president if he did that,” said Dr. Caleb Smith, adding that chances are, his legal council has advised him against going this route.
