House of Reps Fail To Stop Trump From Securing Funds For Border Wall
The Democrats will stop at nothing in order to try and prevent President Trump from keeping our country safe. Another attempt was made today, but they failed miserably.
The House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to override the veto that the President issued against Congress.
What happened is simple, President Trump declared a national emergency in order to secure funding to build the border wall to keep us safe from the tens of thousands of immigrants trying to enter our country illegally.
Next, the House of Representatives and the Senate both voted to end the national emergency which sent the bill to the President’s desk, which he quickly vetoed.
Now what they tried to do on Tuesday is override the President’s veto. In order to override the veto, there must be a two-thirds majority to vote in favor of the order.
According to The Hill,
The chamber voted 248-181 to override the veto, falling short of the roughly 290 votes, or two-thirds majority, needed. Trump issued the veto earlier this month to push back on a rebuke from Congress over his bid to reallocate Pentagon funding to build a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The vast majority of Republicans in the lower chamber stood with Trump on Tuesday over the veto. But 14 GOP lawmakers opted to break party lines and rebuke the president’s emergency declaration for a second time.
“The men and women who put their lives on the line every single day to secure our borders deserve all the tools they need to do the job, including a border wall,” Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ga.) said during debate. “Through President Trump’s proclamation and his veto of House Joint Resolution 4, he’s acting decisively to finally address this crisis under the authority provided to him by Congress.”
There’s no stopping President Trump on this matter. We finally got our wall and it’s already being built. He actually secured another $1 Billion from the Pentagon this week as well.
