Senate Votes to End Trump National Emergency Declaration

The Senate voted 59-41 to end the President’s national emergency declaration–a vote that will likely lead to Trump’s first veto, according to Fox News.

At least 12 Republicans voted with Democrats to oppose the declaration:

  • Wicker
  • Rubio
  • Portman
  • Collins
  • Murkowski
  • Toomey
  • Blunt
  • Alexander
  • Romney
  • Paul
  • Moran
  • Lee

Prior to the vote, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said, “I’m going to be voting in favor of the resolution of disapproval. This is a constitutional question, it’s a question of the balance of power that is core to our constitution. This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier,” he said.

President Trump declared a national emergency last month after Congress would not provide him with adequate funding to build a barrier along the southern border. The emergency declaration would enable the President to appropriate an extra $3.6 billion for the wall.

This morning, Vice President Pence joined Fox News and urged Republicans to vote in favor of the national emergency declaration.

“A vote against the president’s national emergency declaration is a vote to deny the humanitarian and security crisis that’s happening at our southern border,” he said. So we’re urging every member of the Senate set politics aside to recognize that we have a crisis.”

RNC Chairwoman Slams her Uncle Mitt Romney for His Anti-Trump Op-Ed

RNC Chairwoman and niece of failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Ronna McDaniel, didn’t mince words when responding to her uncle’s anti-Trump op-ed.

Shortly after President Trump responded to the op-ed, McDaniel tweeted, “POTUS is attacked and obstructed by the MSM media and Democrats 24/7. For an incoming Republican freshman senator to attack as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and media want and is disappointing and unproductive.”

Romney’s op-ed, which was published in the Washington Post yesterday, called into question President Trump’s character and said the commander-in-chief “has not risen to the mantle of the office.”

President Trump responded to Romney’s comments this morning, tweeting that the Senator-elect should be a “team player.”

“Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast! Question will be, is he a Flake? I hope not. Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful. I won big, and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!”

 

President Responds to Mitt Romney’s Shameful Anti-Trump Op-Ed

President Trump has responded this morning after failed Republican presidential candidate and Senator-elect Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued an op-ed in the Washington Post critical of the commander-in-chief.

In a New Year’s Day op-ed, Romney said the president “has not risen to the mantle of the office” and suggested he had “glaring” shortfalls in his character.

President Trump took aim this morning, questioning whether or not Romney will be like former GOP Senator (and total sellout) Jeff Flake (AZ).

“Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast! Question will be, is he a Flake? I hope not. Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful. I won big, and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!”

Last February, Romney had no problem accepting President Trump’s endorsement during his Senate run.

After the President tweeted his support for Romney, he responded, “Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah.”
