He says he’ll kill the bill after Senate GOPers cave (as usual) on national security and sovereignty.

The Senate voted Thursday to block President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration over the southern border, a sharp bipartisan rebuke of the president’s flex of executive power.

The chamber comfortably passed the measure in a 59-41 vote. Twelve Republicans who worried about executive overreach supported it in an embarrassing blow to the president.

Trump plans to reject the bill, which the Democratic-held House has already passed. In one tweet after the vote, he simply said, “VETO!” In a subsequent message, he said he looks “forward to VETOING the just passed Democrat inspired Resolution,” thanking Republicans “who voted to support Border Security and our desperately needed WALL!”

I’m serious about the pen question. Will he follow through? So far we have zero wall. Will we get zero veto?

The invasion really is an emergency. Maybe it’s time to treat it as such.
