BREAKING: President Trump ‘Declares State of Emergency’ 

PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump has Declared a state of Emergency in the US. 

The move, that affects the District of Columbia and the seat of Government power follows attempts to remove the President from office by Democrats who tried to force Republicans to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from Office. 

In a State of Emergency, a President is able to ignore many rules and constraints that normally apply in normal times. 

If he declares a State of Emergency that he has the power to do so, a whopping 100 new moves become available to him. 

The rules, according to The Atlantic are “suited to a leader bent on amassing or retaining power. For instance, the president can, with the flick of his pen, activate laws allowing him to shut down many kinds of electronic communications inside the United States or freeze Americans’ bank accounts.”

“Other powers are available even without a declaration of emergency, including laws that allow the president to deploy troops inside the country to subdue domestic unrest.”

The State of Emergency allow the President emergency powers, and the laws governing the conduct of war allow the president to engage in conduct that would be illegal during ordinary times.
