    Senate Votes To Reject Trump’s Emergency Declaration, Setting Up President’s First Veto IlWna

    From The Washington Post

    Erica Werner, Seung Min Kim, John Wagner of The Washington Post wrote:The Senate passed a resolution Thursday to overturn President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border, with 12 Republicans joining all Democrats to deliver a bipartisan rebuke to the president.

    The disapproval resolution passed the House last month, so the 59-41 Senate vote will send the measure to the Trump’s desk. Trump has promised to use the first veto of his presidency to strike it down, and Congress does not have the votes to override the veto.

    “VETO!” Trump tweeted moments after the vote.

    Still, the Senate vote stood as a rare instance of Republicans breaking with Trump in significant numbers on an issue central to his presidency — the construction of a wall along the southern border.

    For weeks Trump had sought to frame the debate in terms of immigration, arguing that Republican senators who supported border security should back him up on the emergency declaration. But for many GOP lawmakers, it was about a bigger issue: The Constitution itself, which grants Congress — not the president -- control over government spending.

    Here we go...

    House says no. Senate says no. Trump says "VETO" Let's see where this leads.

    But for many GOP lawmakers, it was about what they saw as a bigger issue: the Constitution itself, which grants Congress — not the president — control over government spending. By declaring a national emergency to bypass Congress, Trump was violating the separation of powers and setting a dangerous precedent, these senators argued. “It’s imperative for the president to honor Congress’s constitutional role to make policy and appropriate money,” Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) said Thursday on the Senate floor as he announced his vote in favor of the disapproval resolution. “A national emergency declaration is a tool to be used cautiously and sparingly.” wrote:
    Since when did Tromp ever care about the Constitution? Trump thinks because he is president that it doesn't apply to him and he can can do whatever he likes.

    I agree with you. Trump could care less about the Constitution. I said before that Trump's first lie as President was when he swore in that he would "Preserve, Protect and Defend The Constitution of the United States. So help me God." So there you go on that one.
