  • Trump Signs His First Veto Against Resolution Blocking Emergency Declaration

American Civil Liberties Union, which filed one of the cases, said the veto is meaningless, like the declaration in the first place.

The declaration is already the subject of a legal challenge.

The vote came a day after the Senate called for an end to USA military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen, marking the second instance in two days that a Senate that has been mostly deferential to Trump took a position against him.

While the original passage marked a stinging rebuke from members of Trump's own party, his veto is likely the last word as lawmakers are unlikely to muster the two-thirds majority required to override.

"It is definitely a national emergency; rarely have we had such a national emergency", he insisted.

The White House sought to pare back Republican defections leading up to the vote, with the President and White House aides making clear to Republican senators that a vote against Trump on this issue would have ramifications come re-election time.

"We clearly have a [border] crisis and we have to address it", Republican Senator Rob Portman told reporters.

"The Senate's waking up a little bit to our responsibilities", said Sen.

Mann, who was Munoz's predecessor at Nissan , was sent to Mitsubishi in 2016 after Nissan took a stake in the carmaker. For his part, current Nissan boss Hiroto Saikawa said the new board represented "a true partnership on equal footing".

"I think actually a national emergency was designed for a specific goal like this, so we have a great case", Trump said.

But on Thursday, Tillis cast his vote with the president, saying he was reassured by indications that Trump would support changes to the National Emergencies Act itself to rein in presidential powers going forward, and that his GOP colleagues also backed such legislation.

"The fact that this is an emergency is undeniable", Nielsen said.

Trump's reelection campaign began fundraising off the veto early Friday afternoon, sending out an email asking supporters to donate to an "Official Wall Defense Fund". "To me, border security is national security".

Mr Trump called the resolution reckless and said he was proud to veto it.

Speaking in the Oval Office, Trump painted his usual portrait of a lawless and violent border.

He also noted that despite record numbers of apprehensions at the border, there was not enough space to detain them all. His signature ended a 35-day partial shutdown of the federal government, which had been triggered by a showdown after Congress refused to appropriate the $5.7bn he requested to start construction at the border.

Congress declined and the result was the longest shutdown in USA history.
