President Trump to deliver remarks in Oval Office

As president, the protection of the nation is my highest duty.

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. "Presidents have exercised broad discretion in determining what challenges and situations amount to national emergencies". For instance, prior national emergency declarations have authorized the use of statutory powers to prevent the importation of uncut diamonds. and to promote democracy or conflict resolution in various countries around the world. They were very courageous yesterday, and I appreciate that very much. Last month, more than 76,000 illegal migrants arrived at our border.

As the USA and the European Union struggle to iron out their differences on trade, Trump said, "they are willing to talk to us and if they don't talk to us, we're going to do something that's going to be pretty severe economically".

"People hate the word invasion, but that's what it is", Trump continued, calling the resolution "dangerous" and "reckless".

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

Trump had sought to frame the issue as voting for him or for "Nancy Pelosi, Crime and the Open Border Democrats". 70,000 Americans a year are killed by drugs, including meth, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl.

BREAKING: Trump Signs His First Veto Against Resolution Blocking Emergency Declaration

US President Donald Trump issued the first veto of his presidency today (NZ time) to secure federal money for a border wall he promised as a candidate and considers a crucial priority for re-election, capping a week of confrontation with both political parties.

Trump was also joined by Vice President Mike Pence--who said "I don't know that I've ever been more proud than to be standing next to you today"--and Attorney General Bill Barr--who called Trump's decision consistent with the law. On February 26, the House of Representatives voted 245-182 to do the same.

Twelve Republicans had defected from the president to ensure the state of emergency declaration's failure in the Senate.

President Trump signed the first veto of his presidency, rejecting a measure that would reverse the national emergency he declared on the southern border.

Up to $2.5 billion under the Department of Defense funds transferred for Support for Counterdrug Activities (Title 10 United States Code, section 284).

Following the veto, the resolution will return to the House. The veto will likely put the matter to rest as neither chamber of Congress appears to have the necessary two-thirds majority to overturn Trump's veto.
