Trump Signs His First Veto After Congress Rejects His National Emergency

Trump Again Threatens Europe With Tariffs: Expect Instant Global Recession - Mish Talk

President Trump used his veto pen for the first time Friday, after Congress tried to reverse his national emergency declaration and rein in spending on a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

"I look forward to VETOING the just passed Democrat inspired Resolution which would OPEN BORDERS while increasing Crime, Drugs, and Trafficking in our Country", tweeted Trump on Thursday after the vote.

Before issuing the veto, Trump again said there was a tremendous national emergency, while U.S. Attorney General William Barr said the action the president had taken was legal.

Twelve Republicans joined the Democrats in voting for the resolution, saying that Trump is circumventing Congress's enumerated power of the purse to appropriate funds and using them as he pleases. Unless more Republicans defect from the president's position, neither margin would be sufficient to override a veto.

It also brings back the secret June 2016 tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and Lynch. Collins had released transcripts of the committee's closed-door interview with Page earlier this week.


Senator Thom Tillis, another senator up for re-election in a politically divided state, had announced last month that he would vote for the disapproval resolution.

Congressional critics do not appear to have the votes to override Trump's veto. The measure ultimately passed 59-41, and Trump immediately vowed to veto. "I thank all of the Strong Republicans who voted to support Border Security and our desperately needed WALL!"

"The president acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border", the Justice Department argues in the letter, a copy of which was reviewed by The Washington Post.

The renegade conservatives had condemned the emergency declaration for setting up a risky precedent for a president while emphasising that they still agreed with Mr Trump's tough border security policies.

"We have registered two cases against them under IPC Section 188 for violating the notification", said the Police Inspector. The ban was reportedly issued due to concerns about the game's impact on players' "behavior, conduct, and language".


"We had a war against a king in the American revolution", said Sen.

President Trump will deliver remarks in the Oval Office at 3:30 p.m. ET, White House says.

Mr Trump repeated his claims that illegal immigrants from the southern border were mostly criminals, bringing drugs into the country.
