Mark Levin commented on Trump reopening the government today, saying that the three-week period is meaningless.
Listen below (it’s cued up to 34:06):
Levin argued that the problem Trump has right now is that Republicans in the Senate are peeling off from him.
But right now he’s not concerned about this three-week period. He’s concerned about the bottom line.
Levin says if Trump goes for amnesty, “I’m out. I will be a critic.”
But, he adds, “if the president is fighting to secure the wall, I’m prepared to wait three weeks and see what happens.”
Levin notes that you can argue over tactics, but all he really cares about is the bottom line.
He says if we are sold out, then there’ll be time to deal with it. But he’s not willing to prejudge the outcome before it happens.
Levin also points out that he’s done a lot of research on the National Emergencies Act, which some are telling Trump not to use.
He says it’s been used 42 times!
And it’s not the same thing as what Obama did with DACA, he argues, saying Obama had no statutory basis for what he did with DACA.
Again, it was passed in 1967 and has been used 42 times – and Trump will not be the first to use it.
As far as the courts go, Levin says the real battle is in the Supreme Court. Of course, he notes, the lower courts will block Trump as they always do. It’s the Supreme Court that matters.
