It is not a secret that Donald Trump has an inordinate ego. His self-esteem is as big and robust as his dreamed wall on the border with Mexico. And it is not that self-love is a rare quality among the leaders, surely one cannot reach positions of power without a high dose of security in oneself, but the case of the tycoon turned politician is worthy of analysis.
It’s not that Trump knows a lot, it’s that he knows more than anyone. And, above all, as proof: a funny video that went viral on social networks. Immediately after his speech, the Democratic leaders responded to the president.
“President Trump must stop holding the American people hostage, stop making a crisis and reopen the Administration,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrat.

Trump keeps the declaration of emergency “on the table”
“We are not going to respond to proposals that are generated by the internal situation in the United States, we believe there is a political confrontation in the US, as there is in every country every time elections are coming. President Donald Trump maintains “on the table” the option of declaring a national emergency to build the wall on the border with Mexico, although he considers that “the best solution” is an agreement with Congress to finance border security, he said.
“Unlike us – the presidential term is six years – they have a presidential term of four, with re-election.” Then, when the new president arrives, he is already thinking about re-election and his opponents are almost ready to take office. In the same, of course, that is an explanation, “said the president. However, Sanders reiterated that Trump considers “the best solution” to reach an agreement with Congress to finance the construction of the wall with Mexico.
