Trump to declare National Emergency to build wall

President Donald Trump plans to declare a national emergency after Congress passed a government spending deal that provides further funding for border security, the White House announced Thursday.

A Trump administration official confirmed that the president will announce a $8 billion for a border wall under executive actions.

"President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action — including a national emergency — to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Thursday afternoon.

Trump will hold an event in the Rose Garden about the border at 10 a.m. Friday, the White House said.
