President Trump took to Twitter to claim that his declaration of a national emergency is constitutional and that the Senate should vote in support of his border wall.
"Prominent legal scholars agree that our actions to address the National Emergency at the Southern Border and to protect the American people are both CONSTITUTIONAL and EXPRESSLY authorized by Congress...." he wrote on Twitter Thursday morning.
"....If, at a later date, Congress wants to update the law, I will support those efforts, but today’s issue is BORDER SECURITY and Crime!!! Don’t vote with Pelosi!"
He then slammed the Democrats once again, tweeting:
"A vote for today’s resolution by Republican Senators is a vote for Nancy Pelosi, Crime, and the Open Border Democrats!"
Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi has tweeted on Wednesday that the Republicans were trying to change the law temporarily so that Trump could get away with his fake declaration, "just this once."
"In an effort to avoid voting in favor of the House's resolution to terminate Trump’s #FakeEmergency, GOP senators are proposing legislation to allow Trump to violate the Constitution *just this once.*" she tweeted.
"The House will not take up this legislation to give President Trump a pass."
Rep. Joaquin Castro also wrote:
"The Senate will take the most consequential vote in decades tomorrow on my resolution to terminate the President’s emergency declaration & preserve congressional authority. I’ll be heading to the Senate floor to witness it & invite my colleagues to join me."
If funding of the wall is given the green-light, Trump may have all but secured a second presidential bid in 2020.
The nation is praying that the Senate votes with the conscience.
