Trump Reacts To Rebuke From Senate: "VETO!"


He hasn’t spoke out online as yet, but conventional wisdom is that we’ll soon hear President Trump’s reaction to the dozen Senate Republicans who joined Democrats in slapping down his declaration of a national emergency at the southern border.

Under the emergency declaration, the President aims to divert Defense Department construction funds to help build a massive border wall. The Senate vote on a resolution of disapproval passed, 59-41. The resolution recently passed the House and now goes to Trump's desk – where it will be vetoed. That is, if President Trump sticks by his promise to do so.

Once that happens, the resolution will head back to Congress and watchers say it’s unlikely that enough votes exist for a veto override. It will be Trump's first presidential veto.
