President Donald Trump's emergency powers to fund his wall: How it should be handled

The Presidency, the office of the President, must have emergency powers that include funding to address emergencies short of declaring martial law. The issue concerns what constitutes a valid emergency requiring funding capability.

Therefore, the House of Representatives should have the ability to override the President's emergency declarations on a line-by-line basis and requiring a super majority of the House, say 60%.

It's a quick-fix even though it might require a Constitutional amendment, though I doubt it would.
