President Trump Drops One-Word BOMB After 12 Republicans Help Block National Emergency

President Trump Drops One-Word BOMB After 12 Republicans Help Block National Emergency

On Thursday, the Senate voted to block President Trump’s National Emergency which included 12 Republican Senators who joined the Democrats to defy the President.

The Republicans, who have a 53 to 47 majority over the Democrats, lost the vote in the Senate 59-41.

Check out what CNN reported:

Lawmakers don’t have enough votes, however, to override a certain veto from the President, but passage of the resolution in the Senate after it passed the House last month is nevertheless an embarrassing blow to Trump delivered by his own party over the President’s top campaign pledge of a wall at the US-Mexico border.

The setback for the President also comes on the heels of another high-profile break with his administration after the Senate voted just one day earlier to curtail US military support for a Saudi-led war in Yemen, which has created a humanitarian crisis in that country.

Senate Republicans have struggled for weeks over how to vote on the resolution to overturn the national emergency.

The vote forced many to choose between loyalty to a President unafraid to attack members of his party who defy him and an emergency declaration that conservative critics describe as executive overreach and warn could set a precedent used by Democratic presidents to declare emergencies over liberal priorities such as action on climate change.

This betrayal by the Republicans in the Senate is more proof that there is a large number of Never-Trumpers in Congress who will defy the President.

What do you think President Trump had to say after the decision in the Senate? Within minutes of the vote, the President had ONE word to say. Check out his tweet below:

BOOM! We can always count on President Trump to hold his ground and do what’s right for the safety of the American people!

Unfortunately, President Trump can’t officially veto the bill via tweet but he has obviously made it clear the second the bill gets delivered to his office, he will be vetoing it.
