(CNSNews.com) - Departing from his normal speaking cadence, President Donald Trump on Friday announced that he will sign a national emergency to redirect money he wants for his border wall.

"I'll sign the final papers as soon as I get into the Oval Office, and we'll have a national emergency," Trump stated in his normal speaking voice.

Then the president lapsed into sing-song, as he foretold what will happen next:

And we will then be sued; and they will sue us in the 9th Circuit, even though it shouldn't be there.

And we will possibly get a bad ruling; and then we'll get another bad ruling; and then we'll end up in the Supreme Court.

And hopefully we'll get a fair shake; and we'll win at the Supreme Court; just like the (Muslim) ban; they sued us in the 9th Circuit and we lost; and then we lost in the appellate division; and then we went to the Supreme Court, and then we won...

 

Trump told a news conference in the Rose Garden, "We're talking about an invasion of our country."  But Democrats vehemently disagree, and they plan to block his move.

Trump also said Congress "skimped" on wall funding, thus prompting him to declare a national emergency: "I didn't need to do this. I would rather do it much faster," he said.
