Jan 07, 2019 | Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig said Sunday that President Donald Trump is a "national emergency." 

Lessig's comments came on the heels of Trump saying that he "may declare a national emergency" if Congress does not act to appropriate enough money for his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Some congressional Democrats raised legality questions after Trump made the comment. Lessig was not pleased by the statement, either.

No reading of our constitution would ever uphold the view that a president can stop the functioning of government, to insist upon a program unsupported by the public.
