So, if Trump declares a state of emergency to pay for his wall, will he then sign the CR to end the shutdown?

To the surprise of no one here, I think the whole wall thing is a sham. It is part of his 2020 campaign. He had two years of majorities in Congress to get something done, but waited until the Dems had the House to make a big deal of it. That way, he can blame the Dems for him not following through on a campaign promise. And he knew all along that Mexico wouldn't pay for it but that there were plenty of folks stupid enough to believe it. (I think he knew all along, but no one has gone broke underestimating his intelligence).
