Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that he and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) would use any legislative means to prevent President Trump from building a wall along America’s southern border if Trump declares a national emergency. He made the remarks during an interview on the liberal podcast “Pod Save America” on Thursday.

One of the “Pod Save America” co-hosts asked Schumer how Senate Democrats would respond if Trump declared a national emergency in order to build a wall along America’s southern border.

Schumer explained that if Trump does declare a national emergency, Trump’s decision would be challenged in court.

“So I think legally it would be blocked. But you know, Nancy and I have talked about it, and we work very closely together as you know, and we’d look at any legislative way to stop it as well,” Schumer said.
