President Trump plans to veto legislation that would have blocked his declaration of a national emergency at the southern border. It will be the first veto of his presidency.
Twelve Republicans broke with Mr. Trump to vote for the resolution, which passed the Senate Thursday afternoon. Mr. Trump wasted no time countering, tweeting soon after, “VETO!”
It is not believed there are enough votes to override the president’s veto, which would require a two-thirds majority in both chambers.
