Wednesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin took on the critics of President Trump’s national emergency declaration on the border crisis and defended the president’s legal power to build the wall.

“Let me try this a different way, so even slow-learning senators, radio hosts, and TV hosts can understand it,” Levin said.


“If the 1976 National Emergencies Act is unconstitutional, then multiple presidents have violated the Constitution, and Congress has done nothing and the courts have done nothing,” Levin said. “If the movement of funds under the Military Construction Codification Act of 1982 is unconstitutional, a dictatorial act, then past presidents have been dictators. But the fact of the matter is this is far more acceptable, as a constitutional matter, than the existence of these departments and agencies in the first place.”
