Trump: “Prepared” to veto resolution to end emergency

WASHINGTON, US President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he is “prepared to veto” a resolution that would end his national emergency declaration as the Senate is set to vote on the measure today.

Trump said in a series of tweets “the big National Emergency vote today by The United States Senate on Border Security and the Wall (which is already under major construction).” “I am prepared to veto, if necessary,” he affirmed.

He added “the Southern Border is a National Security and Humanitarian Nightmare, but it can be easily fixed!” “The Democrats are “Border Deniers.” They refuse to see or acknowledge the Death, Crime, Drugs and Human Trafficking at our Southern Border!” he remarked.

He affirmed that “prominent legal scholars agree that our actions to address the National Emergency at the Southern Border and to protect the American people are both CONSTITUTIONAL and EXPRESSLY authorized by Congress.” “If, at a later date, Congress wants to update the law, I will support those efforts, but today’s issue is BORDER SECURITY and Crime!!! Don’t vote with Pelosi!” he emphasized.
