What's in Trump's Hand-- The Stafford Act?

The Stafford Act authorizes the president to declare a "major disaster" or "emergency" in response to an incident or threatened incident that overwhelms the response capability of state or local governments.

Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (the Stafford Act) authorizes the President to issue two types of declarations that could potentially provide federal assistance to states and localities in response to a terrorist attack: a “major disaster declaration” or an “emergency declaration.”

What is Mr. Trump waiting on? CM
