President Trump Issues First Veto of his Presidency	 	 	 			President Donald Trump  CNN

President Trump on Friday used the first veto of his administration to reject a bipartisan resolution that sought to block his declaration of a national emergency at the border, a move nearly certain to kill the measure. The numbers did not make it to the level required to override a veto, meaning Trump would secure his plans despite congressional disapproval.

His re-election campaign also sought to raise money on the issue, sending a message to supporters in Trump's name that read, "I look forward to VETOING the Dem inspired OPEN BORDERS & Pro-Crime resolution!" "I thank all of the Strong Republicans who voted to support Border Security and our desperately needed WALL!" He wrote an opinion piece in the Washington Post at the time arguing there would be "no intellectual honesty" in supporting executive overreach by Trump that he had opposed under President Barack Obama.

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

Trump is seeking a total of $8 billion for his wall: $1.375 billion approved by Congress, $600 million from the Treasury Department's drug forfeiture fund, $2.5 billion from the Defense Department's drug interdiction efforts and roughly $3.5 billion from Department of Defense military construction. The measure ultimately passed 59-41, and Trump immediately vowed to veto.

Senate Republicans have shown support for amending the National Emergencies Act in an attempt to curtail the power of future emergency declarations.

But Friday, Trump said he had sympathy for Republicans who voted against him and emphasized that he never truly twisted the arms of lawmakers, because he knew there were not enough votes to override the veto.

The renegade conservatives had condemned the emergency declaration for setting up a unsafe precedent for a president while emphasising that they still agreed with Mr Trump's tough border security policies. Ahead of the voting, Trump framed the issue as with-him-or-against-him on border security, a powerful argument with many.

The bill had passed the House in February with thirteen congressional Republicans crossing the aisle to join Democrats.

They included Sens. Marco Rubio, Rob Portman, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Toomey, Roy Blunt, Lamar Alexander, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, Jerry Moran, Mike Lee, and Roger Wicker.
