The Fight Over Trumps Emergency Declaration Is Symbolic But It Still Matters

trump declaration

TL;DR

But while that outcome would be a mostly symbolic rebuke of the president it still matters. McConnell warned of political consequences from the White House for lawmakers who oppose Trump. The Democratic led House already has passed its resolution against Trumps executive move which gives the President broader powers when he says the country faces an emergency. And hes not especially keen on any White House infringing on Congress constitutionally mandated control over spending. I think most Republicans senators fully understand that. Republican Senators are overthinking tomorrows vote on National Emergency. We have a MAJOR NATIONAL EMERGENCY at our Border and the People of our Country know it very well!
