Trump Rejects GOP Emergency Declaration Compromise Setting Up Rebuke

trump declaration

TL;DR

But with Trump refusing to even consider that its likely the bill will pass the Senate. The bill is largely symbolic as Trump has said hell veto it and Trumps emergency resolution is already tied up in the courts. President Donald Trumps border wall began as a symbol of his approach to immigration and it may be rejected symbolically as well. President Donald Trumps border wall began as a symbol of his approach to immigration so its only fitting that it may be rejected symbolically on Thursday as well. But while that outcome would be a mostly symbolic rebuke of the president it still matters. For his part McConnell has been ambivalent about Trumps border wall. And hes not especially keen on any White House infringing on Congress constitutionally mandated control over spending. Republican lawmakers had hoped a deal on that measure would have helped more of them to back Trumps border emergency in Thursdays vote. With Republicans controlling the Senate 53 47 just four GOP defections would be enough to approve the resolution canceling Trumps border emergency. It would apply to future emergencies but not Trumps current border emergency unless he seeks to renew it next year
