New Delhi, Feb 03 (ANI): Ahead of the State of the Union (SOTU) address, United States President Donald Trump on Friday once again threatened to declare a state of emergency to secure funding for his proposed US-Mexico wall. The Hill quoted Trump as saying, "I think there's a good chance we'll have to do that (declare emergency)." While talking to reporters in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Trump hinted that he may divulge more details about his plan to build the wall in Tuesday's SOTU address. He added that people should "listen closely" to his speech. Lambasting a bipartisan conference committee debating wall funding, Trump said that it is a "waste of time", predicting that the Democrats would pay a price for opposing the wall.
