New Delhi, Jan 30 (ANI): The United States President Donald Trump's son, Eric Trump, has said that he wants his father to declare an emergency to build the wall on the US-Mexico border. His proclamation comes just a short while after the longest-ever partial government shutdown - triggered by an impasse over funding for the wall between Trump and the US Congress - was temporarily halted through stop-gap legislation until February 15. "I want him to declare an emergency," Eric said during an appearance on Fox News show, 'Hannity'. He further said that the emergency should be declared to "build the wall with the United States military because that's what people in this country want," reports The Hill. The US President has previously threatened to impose an emergency to get the wall - which is one of his long-standing electoral promises - built.
