Trump issues first veto after rebuke of border order

President Trump issued the first veto of his presidency, striking down a resolution that would have terminated his national emergency declaration diverting funding to build the wall. The veto will likely put the matter to rest as neither chamber of Congress appears to have the necessary two-thirds majority to overturn Trump's veto.

"I look forward to VETOING the just passed Democrat inspires Resolution which would OPEN BORDERS while increasing Crime, Drugs, and Trafficking in our Country", Trump tweeted Thursday shortly after the Senate passed the resolution condemning Trump's unilateral action. "Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it".

Trump was flanked by border officials and people who have had family members killed by someone who was in the United States illegally as he issued the veto during an Oval Office signing ceremony. "You're keeping your word by vetoing this legislation".

The president defied Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Congressional Democrats, and the "dirty dozen" Senate Republicans who joined them.

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.

He had promised a veto of the resolution ending his emergency declaration as soon as the measure was circulated on Capitol Hill.

I'm happy that we managed to pull that one through. "I played, I think, a great match". "I was really impressed with her game". He will play 19-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov , the 24th seed who beat 10th-seeded Croatian Marin Cilic 6-4, 6-2.

Trump thanked Republican senators who voted for his declaration in a Twitter post earlier on Friday.

In declaring an emergency on February 15, Trump cited drug smuggling across the border from Mexico (misleading), the drop in crime in El Paso, Texas, after a partial border barricade was built there (not true) and reports of women kidnapped, bound with tape and trafficked into the United States across unguarded sections of the border (no evidence exists of this).

Trump made the construction of a wall along the nearly 2,000-mile-long US-Mexico border a cornerstone of his 2016 presidential campaign, saying Mexico would pay for it.

Republican senators who bucked the president said they did so to preserve congressional control over the government's purse strings.

As the USA and the European Union struggle to iron out their differences on trade, Trump said, "they are willing to talk to us and if they don't talk to us, we're going to do something that's going to be pretty severe economically".

"The fact that this is an emergency is undeniable", Nielsen said.
