He could, but not sure that is a great thing to do for the country. Trump has flat out admitted before that he will do it because Congress will not give him what he wants. It is not at all clear that the border is in any state of emergency.

Trump's own words and statements are in flux about that. He has said it is secured and unsecured at the same time. And his own administration has undercut his scariest statements about drugs and violence. It is not that they are not happening but they are not happening in the ways indicated.

So, if he declares a national emergency to get his policy dreams done, that allows future presidents to do it too. For programs they like less.

This would be the first time, at least that I can think of, that this would be done for political reasons. The last one that I remember was Bush Jr. And that was around 9/11. Which was a national emergency by all accounts.
