Facing a divided Congress for the first time in his presidency, Donald Trump warned emboldened Democrats in his State of the Union speech Feb. 5 that “ridiculous partisan investigations” could derail economic progress.

Trump peppered his remarks with calls for bipartisanship, but his message clashed with the rancorous atmosphere he has helped cultivate in the nation’s capital – as well as the desire of most Democrats to block his path during his next two years in office.

The president’s remarks previewed how he planned to defend himself as the new Democratic House majority launches a flurry of investigations into his administration and personal finances.

“If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation,” Trump declared.

But with a government shut-down deadline looming, Trump faces a critical decision: whether to call a national emergency to build a wall on the country’s southern border. Such a move would certainly invite legal challenges and further divide the country. (AP)
