Geez, Trump really can’t figure this out.

Trump can’t decide if there is an emergency.

President Donald Trump inadvertently admitted the emergency declaration he’s considering about the situation on the southern border is all about politics on Wednesday, saying it’s “the people that are unreasonable” who will determine if he declares one.

Asked by a reporter why he didn’t declare a national emergency during his Oval Office speech on Tuesday night, Trump said, “because I think we might work a deal, and if we don’t, I may go that route.”

“I have the absolute right to do national emergency if I want,” Trump added.

The reporter followed up by asking the president what his “threshold” will be to declare one. But instead of citing the possibility that conditions could deteriorate at the southern border, Trump cited political considerations — rather than anything that’s happening on the ground.

“My threshold will be if I can’t make a deal with people that are unreasonable,” Trump said, alluding to Democrats who thus far have shown no sign of caving to his demand that more than $5 billion in wall funding be included in a government funding bill.
