NEW POLL: More Than 60 Percent of Americans Disapprove of Trump’s National Emergency Declaration

February 19, 2019

The American people have spoken.

According to a new NPR/PBS/Marist Poll:

  • More than 60 percent of Americans disapprove of President Trump’s national emergency declaration.
  • 58 percent of Americans do not believe there is a “crisis” at the southern border and that Trump is misusing his presidential authority.

And now, 16 states are suing President Trump over his unlawful breach of executive power, just to make good on a campaign applause line.

By stealing billions from high-priority military construction projects that support our troops, the president and his administration are making America less safe and forcing military families to foot the bill for his ineffective, wasteful wall.

No one is above the law.  Republicans must join Democrats to uphold the Constitution and stand with the American people – against the President’s brazen assault.
