Trump issues veto over border emergency declaration

Trump Again Threatens Europe With Tariffs: Expect Instant Global Recession - Mish Talk

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 emergency declaration would reallocate approximately $8.1 billion from the Department of Defense (as well as other areas) to begin construction of a southern border barrier.

In challenging Trump on Thursday, only one Republican who is up for re-election next year - Susan Collins of ME - voted for the disapproval resolution.

Trump offered praise to the GOP senators who remained loyal and voted against terminating his declaration, saying "they were very courageous yesterday, and I appreciate that very much".

Speaker Pelosi on upcoming House override vote of President Trump's first veto: "On March 26, the House will once again act to protect our Constitution and our democracy from the President's emergency declaration by holding a vote to override his veto".

Trump made a border wall a central promise of his 2016 campaign for the White House. "This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier".

Trump initiated the showdown months ago when he all but dared Congress not to give him the $5.7 billion he was demanding to build the U.S. -Mexico wall, by threatening a federal government shutdown. In a statement, Republican senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee said: "Never before has a president asked for funding, Congress has not provided it, and the president then has used the National Emergencies Act of 1976 to spend the money anyway". Trump had campaigned for president promising Mexico would pay for the wall.
