text. >> reporter: also lost clayton parks, his wife calling him an incredible father. josh pinkert, husband' father. russell is a father of two and vicen vicente suarez a father of eight. >> my dad is never coming home ever. >> you can see the flowers leaning up against the offices here of the henry pratt company. the vigils honoring not just the lives lost but praising that wave of first responders who got in here and ended that rampage on friday. >> ron mott reporting in aurora, thank you. president trump is spending the weekend at his mar-a-lago resort in florida and had had headed down on friday after declaring a national emergency to get more money for the border wall he wants. the president knows it will be a fight with several states and civil rights groups already saying they are going to challenge this thing in court. chuck todd is nbc's political
director and moderator of. . good morning to you, pal. >> good morning. >> president trump is up and tweeting. he is talking about his approval ratings and what is on the mind of his advisers inside the white house are legal challenges that this national emergency will face. how do you see this playing out legally and then on the political side since some republicans don't love this idea? >> legally, i think it frankly is, i think, uphill battle for the president and we can talk about the unintended consequences if it is allowed to be seen as constitutional. i don't think we fully appreciate what would happen if this is allowed to be constitutional. it would forever change the way the congress decides how money is spent and how presidents decide to spend it. but look. look at the political options he had and when you start to look at the three options the president faced, this is actually the best political option he could pick. option one was to go back to congress and ask for more money. he admitted he didn't have the patience for that. option two the shutdown.
his party on congress didn't have the patience for that. option three is losing in the courts at least shows him fighting. for his base is a message he can accepted going through 2020 and they can organize around it. i don't think we focus enough what happens if this is found to be constitutional? it will forever change the relationship between these two branches of government to the point of you could argue it would completely unravel the system of checks and balances, at least when it comes to how taxpayer money is spent. >> when you look at it through a political lens, chuck, is it a political win for the president? do you think democrats see it as a political win for them or is it too early to say for now? >> look. i would say it's not a political win for the president but it prevented, i think, embarrassment for him. and that is what he was worried about. the other two options, another shutdown or admitting that was this a compromise and he would go back for more later, i think
he thought that would be politically more painful for him and harder for him to come back from. at least losing in the the courts gives him another foil. he could either complain about democrats, complain about the media or complain about judges. having a foil is something the president always wants to have had and i think in this case this was the best of three bad options. >> speaking of foils. president trump will have one, of course, come 2020. a lot of democrats looking to challenge him. some have decided to run and some like joe biden have not made their decisions. >> i saw that. >> the former vice president was out this weekend at the munich security conference and went after some of the president's policies but still deflected on 2020. talk through what you think if joe biden decides to get in what that could mean for the democrats. >> the fact of the matter is -- what joe biden publicly exposed is many of us have spent a lot of time covering joe biden over decades know this about him. he is very aware that a long campaign is not going to be kind
to him. that if he announces in the next three weeks his poll numbers will go down, not up just by the fact so many other candidates running. if he can find a way to stay out of this primary until the fall, i think that would be his preference. the question is whether you can. i think the reality of the situation is you can't. but i think what you heard from vice president biden is a desire to delay his decision as long as he can but i don't know how much longer he can realistically do that. >> chuck, thanks. watch "meet the press" this morning. he will much more about the national emergency. heather nauert is taking her name out of consideration to become the next u.s. ambassador to the united nations. she released a statement saying being in the spotlight was too grueling for her family. bloomberg news is reporting there may have been a potential issue with a nanny she employed in the past .
