Big Trump loss: Senate confirms there's no national emergency 59-41

 

Trump's one word response/old-man-screaming-at-his-phone tweet to the Senate voting 59-41 to terminate his declaration of a national emergency at the U.S. southern border with 12 Republicans voting with all the Democrats.

 

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer opened the vote with four reasons why the Senate should vote against Trump's declaration.

First:

"We have gotten no explanation as to why this is an emergency."

Second:

"The money that might be taken away from the military."

Third, of course:

"The president couldn't get his way through congress even when we had two years of Republican leadership in the House, Senate and White House."

The most important reason:

"The fear of an over-reaching executive."

 

Trump has said he will veto this, and it will most likely stick, but this is a huge loss for Trump as the normally, viciously in-his-corner Republican senators voted against him. Also, the loss was magnified by Trump continuously telling the senators to not vote against his declaration.

 
 

And, as a reminder, Trump himself said there was no emergency while he was declaring the emergency when he said, "I didn't need to do this."
