President Trump used his veto pen for the first time Friday, after Congress tried to reverse his national emergency declaration and rein in spending on a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.
"People hate the word invasion, but that's what it is".
Consistent with the law and the legislative process designed by our Founders, today I am vetoing this resolution.
But the Senate margin fell short of the 67 votes needed for a veto override. That resolution seeking to end US backing for the Saudi Arabian-led coalition fighting in Yemen was approved in the aftermath of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul and is expected to be the subject of Trump's second veto.

It also doesn't have a curved glass screen, so it may not look quite as cool as its more expensive cousins but is bit more sturdy. You can expect to pay around £15 grand for this technical masterpiece, which folds outwards to create a 7.3-inch tablet display .

"It is definitely a national emergency; rarely have we had such a national emergency", he insisted.
The Republican-controlled U.S. Senate voted to end his border emergency declaration, with 12 of Trump's fellow Republicans joining Democrats.
Trump expressed pride in the Republicans who did not vote to support the resolution and said later that he had sympathy for those who defied him, adding they did what they had to do.
Trump is seeking a total of $8 billion for his wall: $1.375 billion approved by Congress, $600 million from the Treasury Department's drug forfeiture fund, $2.5 billion from the Defense Department's drug interdiction efforts and roughly $3.5 billion from Department of Defense military construction.

"We tried to cut a deal", Lee said. "I think the value of these last few weeks is to remind the Senate of our constitutional place".
President Trump signed the first veto of his presidency, rejecting a measure that would reverse the national emergency he declared on the southern border.
Despite the embarrassing defections, Trump's grip on the party remains strong and the White House made it clear that Republicans resisting Trump could face political consequences.
"It's not appropriate for a president to ask for money, Congress decides what to spend and then the president spends the amount he wants anyway under the National Emergencies Act", said GOP Senator Lamar Alexander shortly before voting to terminate the emergency declaration. "This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier".
