As expected, President Trump vetoed the Congress bill to repeal the declaration of a national emergency at the border, saying:
‘Today I am vetoing this resolution. Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it. And I’m very proud to veto it.’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi immediately responded:
‘On March 26, the House will once again act to protect our Constitution and our democracy from the president’s emergency declaration by holding a vote to override his veto.’
To be successful, Pelosi will need two-thirds of the House to vote to override Trump’s veto, but will enough Republicans break with the party to vote with the Democrats?
