Trump has declared a national emergency to build his wall to Mexico. But now even his own people in the Senate want to vote against him.
In a dry landscape are various models of the wall to be built between Mexico and the United States.
At the US border with Mexico, there are already several models of the wall that President Donald Trump wants to build.
In the Republican-dominated US Senate, a possible majority suggests that the national emergency declared by President Donald Trump on the border with Mexico. After three others, another Republican senator signalled support for a resolution passed by the House of Representatives.
According to “Bowling Green Daily News,” Senator Rand Paul said he could not vote for the president to spend funds that Congress did not release.
Setback for President
Paul is the fourth Republican senator who has publicly called for a resolution calling for an end to the emergency. Together with them, the Democrats and the two independent senators come to 53 of the 100 votes in the Senate. The House of Representatives has already voted for an identical resolution. Should the Senate vote against the state of emergency by a majority, that would be a setback for the president.
Trump has announced that he will veto the case in this case – to reject this, a two-thirds vote in the Senate is needed, which is unlikely. The construction of a wall on the border with Mexico is Trump’s central election campaign promise. In the past two years, however, he has not been able to get the necessary funds from congress. At the beginning of the year, he called the emergency to finance the construction.
Donald Trump needs money for his wall on the border with Mexico. Now, the US president is apparently making another attempt at funding.
After his unsuccessful fight for billions of dollars for the construction of a border wall wants to US President Donald Trump probably again money for his prestige project in the budget accommodation. For a still-to-decide budget, which is to apply from September, he wants to set $ 8.6 billion for the wall, reports the “New York Times”.
He wants to bring the proposal accordingly on Monday. The US Democrats, who have the majority in the House of Representatives, immediately waved off.
