President Trump indicated Thursday he will likely declare a national emergency if Congress doesn't reach an agreement to fund his border wall — a move that is sure to set off challenges in the courts if he goes ahead with it. The president made the remarks to reporters on the White House South Lawn ahead of his departure to Texas to survey the southern border.

Mr. Trump arrived in McAllen, Texas, just before 2 p.m. Eastern time, to visit a U.S. Border Patrol station. He now heads to the Rio Grande for a press briefing.
