US President Donald Trump has halted his plan to declare a national emergency over immigration at the southern border, saying it was an “easy way out”, but he remained open to declaring it at a later time.

“It’s the easy way out,” CNN quoted the President as saying on Friday.

“Congress should do this. This is too simple. It’s too basic. And Congress should do this… If they can’t do it, I will declare a national emergency. I have the absolute right to do it,” Trump said.

One of the reasons Trump is reluctant to declare a national emergency is because he believes that his administration will be sued and that his actions will be blocked by the 9th Circuit.

“I’ll be sued. It’ll be brought to the 9th Circuit and maybe even though the wording is unambiguous… We’ll probably lose there, too,” Trump said, adding he would “hopefully win” at the Supreme Court.

Earlier in the week, White House lawyers began laying the groundwork for the legal defence of a national emergency declaration on the southern border, informed sources told CNN.

Earlier Friday, Trump continued to bolster his case about the need to build a wall.

“I just got back and it is a far worse situation than almost anyone would understand, an invasion!” Trump tweeted following his Thursday trip to the border town of McAllen in Texas.

“I have been there numerous times – The Democrats, Cryin’ Chuck (Schumer) and Nancy (Pelosi) don’t know how bad and dangerous it is for our entire country.

“The Steel Barrier, or Wall, should have been built by previous administrations long ago. They never got it done – I will. Without it, our country cannot be safe. Criminals, gangs, human traffickers, drugs and so much other big trouble can easily pour in. It can be stopped cold!”
Later during his roundtable, Trump reiterated his belief that the country is “under siege.

“We have a country that is being invaded by criminals and by drugs and we’re going to stop it,” Trump said, offering no evidence to back up his claims. (IANS)

US President Donald Trump has left people astonished with his knowledge of space and the universe and has become a laughing stock yet again after he claimed that the moon is a part of Mars.

In a tweet on Friday, he said: “For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defence and Science.”

Trump’s remarks came a day after NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told USA Today that US astronauts would not be able to make a lunar landing by 2024 unless Trump administration’s $1.6 billion budget increase request is not approved by the US Congress.

As soon as Trump tweeted, people from around the world started trolling him with witty one-liners, jokes and memes.

“Sigh! His dad must have paid his way through astronomy class too!” wrote American long-distance runner Ryan Hill.

“Trump’s knowledge on this matter is one small step for man, one giant leap backwards for mankind,” said Emmy-nominated filmmaker Jeremy Newberger.

“Based on the President’s track record here on Earth, I don’t think NASA needs his input on how to handle space,” tweeted Sam Vinograd, national security analyst at CNN.

Earlier in May, Trump, who is infamous for making controversial statements, war threats and spelling errors on his Twitter handle, confessed that he uses Twitter as a “typewriter”.

Later, Twitter Co-founder, Ev Williams called Trump “master” of the platform, arguing the potential negative effects of the President’s tweets on the country’s political discourse are “trivial compared to the effect of the broader media”.
