President trump signed his first veto. State of emergency continues

Today, on March 15, President Donald trump signed the first veto during his tenure. Thus he rejected the decision of the Congress about lifting the state of emergency, which he personally announced for security on the U.S. border and Mexico.

Up to this point, trump has entered into a small number of the leaders of the country, which over 3 years the Board has never used its veto.

«I would like to thank all of the great Republican senators who bravely voted for border security and a wall — he wrote on Twiter. — Here will see, when you return to your home state, they will love you more than ever before!»

I’d like to thank all of the Great Republican Senators who bravely voted for Strong Border Security and the WALL. This will help stop Crime, Human Trafficking, and Drugs entering our Country. Watch when you get back to your State, they will LOVE you more than ever before!

Earlier, the Deputy press Secretary of the White house Hogan Gigli said that a veto would mark a «sad» and «very important» moment in the presidency of the trump.

«Not only because it is the first veto imposed by the President, but also a sad moment and an important moment because what he really represents is a lack of understanding and faith on the part of Democrats in Congress to recognize the serious and deep crisis that we are dealing along our southern border,» said Gigli reporters Fox News.

What now? A presidential veto is not the end to the struggle of the Democrats for the abolition of a state of emergency, but now it is harder to do: to overcome the blocking of the resolution required two-thirds votes in the Senate and in Congress. Objectively, there is very little likelihood that the Republicans will go for it.

According to the law on States of emergency, adopted in 1976, the state of emergency gives the US President expanded powers to combat the crisis. So, George W. Bush declared a state of emergency after the tragedy of September 11, 2001, as predecessor to trump Barack Obama — during the swine flu epidemic in 2009. Trump used the opportunity to Finance the construction of a wall on the southern border.
