Swainton - Trump has manufactured a fake "national emergency" at our southern border. This is all about justifying Trump's ordering military troops to the border just before the past November mid-term elections to ratchet up the hysteria that fuels his supporters and talking heads like Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh. Of course, the troops did essentially nothing for a month as they awaited a caravan of migrants that dwindled to roughly 1,500 people, mostly women and children. And no, this is not "fake news" like Trump will claim it to be on Twitter and Fox News.
