Adviser hints that Trump will veto disapproval of emergency

President Trump aides acknowledge that President Trump can not meet his pledge to build the wall by the time voters decide whether to grant him another term next year, but insist his base will remain by his side as long as he is not perceived to have given up the fight on the barrier.

Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives, and Chuck Schumer, the Republican-led Senate's top Democrat, said Trump actions "clearly violate the Congress's exclusive power of the purse".

We've seen previous presidents declare national emergencies.

What is a declaration of a national emergency?

Congressional votes in coming weeks on a resolution blocking the emergency declaration were highly likely, but the timing was uncertain. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., said on ABC News' "This Week" on Sunday.

Miller, however, suggested that the USA needed screeners "at that same density across every inch and mile of the southern border". "I could do the wall over a longer period of time. But I'd rather do it much faster".

More clearly looked at, was the President disposed towards totalitarianism, knowing that there is a crisis at the border, or even feigning a crisis at the border, as the Democrats are claiming, he would have very early on ignored Congress and unilaterally moved swiftly to a Declared National Emergency. But right now we've got a national emergency on our hands.

The national emergency declaration also triggered protests, with various groups promising to hold more throughout the country on Monday.

Trump declared the emergency Friday in an effort to go around Congress to fund his border wall.

Funding for the wall, or barrier, is only one part of new border security spending.

Miller went on to state that given "the threat in our country", if the president "can't defend this county", then it means he is "not fulfilling his constitutional oath of office".

If Trump vetoes the resolution, Congress would need a two-thirds majority in both houses to override - unlikely, given the current political makeup of the chambers.

"I think many of us are concerned about this", Johnson said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Critics pounced, speculating the admission could play a role in legal challenges to Trump's claim that an immigration and narcotics-trafficking "emergency" exists along almost 2,000 miles of America's southern boundary.

"Courts are reluctant to second-guess the president on matters of national security", Shane said. "So this is going to be a moment of truth for my GOP colleagues". "It will not be a separation of power anymore - it will be a separation of parties".

"This is an emergency". There is no emergency (border crossings are down), the illegal drug problem (despite Trump's contradicting his own administration) isn't primarily a border problem, and the humanitarian problem that does exist (families fleeing Central America to request asylum) won't be solved by a wall.

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said Saturday that no decision has been taken on funding President Donald Trump's border wall with Mexico, a project that may come partly from redirected military funds.

"I would say it's better for the middle school kids in Kentucky to have a secure border", Graham said.

And we also know what an emergency is and this ain't it, chief.

Some of those challenging the declaration, including California A.G. Becerra, question if there truly is a border emergency.

"Our government wasn't created to operate by national emergency". "We're nearly in uncharted territory". The ban's opponents argued that Mr Trump's comments as a candidate and as president showed the ban was motivated by anti-Muslim bias, not concern about national security. On Sunday California attorney general Xavier Becerra told ABC his state would sue "imminently" to block the order, joined by New Mexico, Oregon, Hawaii and Minnesota.

Trump promised during the 2016 campaign that Mexico would finance a border wall.

After a failed government shutdown, the declaration of a national emergency represents a series of continuous losses for Trump.
