WASHINGTON — Democrats controlling the House have teed up a vote next week to block President Donald Trump from using a national emergency declaration to fund a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, accelerating a showdown in Congress that could divide Republicans and lead to President Trump’s first veto.
The Democrats introduced a resolution Friday to block President Trump’s declaration, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the House would vote on the measure Tuesday. It is sure to pass, and the GOP-run Senate may adopt it as well. President Trump quickly promised a veto.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Will I veto it? 100 percent,” President Trump told reporters at the White House.
Any President Trump veto would likely be sustained, but the upcoming battle will test Republican support for the president’s move, which even some of his allies view as a stretch — and a slap at lawmakers’ control over the power of the federal purse.
Q: Will you definitively veto that resolution that’s introduced today that would block the national emergency, if it passes?”
