Update: As expected, President Trump will veto the bill, as expressed in a one-word tweet on Thursday afternoon.
The Republican-led Senate has voted to block President Trump’s emergency declaration to allocate funding for a southern border wall by a margin of 59-41.
Trump has promised to issue the first veto of his presidency, which the Senate lacks a 2/3 majority to overturn.
“I’ll do a veto. It’s not going to be overturned,” Trump told reporters on Thursday. “It’s a border security vote.“
