Trump issues first veto to protect border emergency declaration

Donny’s First Veto Trump Again Threatens Europe With Tariffs: Expect Instant Global Recession - Mish Talk

Unless more Republicans defect from the president's position, neither margin would be sufficient to override a veto.

The emergency declaration is being challenged in court as an unconstitutional usurpation of Congress' power of the purse.

Congress can veto Mr Trump's veto, but it does not look likely that they will have the necessary votes to do so.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is unlikely to hold such a vote in the Senate.

"Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it".

Therefore, to defend the safety and security of all Americans, I will be signing and issuing a formal veto of this reckless resolution - and that's what it was.

'Trump's just not worth it' - Pelosi against 'divisive impeachment'
We didn't elect a majority of Democrats to the House to allow Republicans to determine the fate of the country ". Second, Pelosi may have deduced something about or even been privy to Robert Mueller's forthcoming report .

Trump had sought to frame the debate in terms of immigration, arguing that Republican senators who supported border security should back him on the emergency declaration. But for those who broke from party ranks to vote for the termination resolution, the president said they were "doing what they have to do", adding that he did not pressure them for their vote.

While Congress is unlikely to muster the votes to override the veto, the rebuke from some members of his own party left Trump politically wounded, at least temporarily, as immigration and his planned wall along the US southern border become a flashpoint again in the 2020 presidential campaign. That resolution seeking to end USA backing for the Saudi Arabian-led coalition fighting in Yemen was approved in the aftermath of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul and is expected to be the subject of Trump's second veto. "There aren't enough votes to override the president".

The White House had lobbied heavily for Republicans to back Trump, despite concerns among some about executive overreach and precedent-setting action that a future Democratic president could copy on policies that Republicans oppose.

Trump's national emergency declaration almost a month ago is paired with a number of executive actions created to make approximately $8 billion of funding available to begin construction on a wall along the southern border.

Trump declared a national emergency last month, after Congress authorized only $1.3 billion in border wall funding, far short of the $5.7 billion Trump had asked for. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters.

The Senate voted Thursday by a margin of 59 to 41 to block Trump's declaration that an emergency on the border with Mexico requires the construction of a wall, a project for which Congress has not appropriated money.
