President Donald Trump declared a national emergency on Friday after Congress declined to fulfill his request for $5.7 billion to help build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border that was his signature 2016 campaign promise.

"Kẻ này nghĩ câu nói này có lẽ 100% dân tỵ nạn hoan nghênh. Ngay cả các quan chức VC mua nhà bên Mỹ hay cho con qua Mỹ cũng chỉ vì họ hy vọng Mỹ sẽ không bao giờ trở thành một nước xã hội chủ nghiã như cái chế độ quái chiêu đầu tư bản đít cộng sản họ đang phục vụ. Chỉ có cán bộ CS nằm vùng mới cảm thấy mất hứng với câu tuyên bố của TT Trump. Tuy nhiên, nhiều người tỵ nạn mắc bệnh chống Trump đến cuồng vẫn không nuốt được cục tức nơi cổ họng để mở miệng cám ơn TT Trump đã bảo đảm họ không phải trốn chạy đi tỵ nạn CS một lần nữa tại xứ nào khác nữa."
