US President Donal Trump threatened that his supporters could turn violent if the left keeps on standing up and say no to his wall and agenda.

Iran Press/America: “A big National Emergency vote today by The United States Senate on Border Security & the Wall (which is already under major construction),” the Donald Trump tweeted.

“I am prepared to veto, if necessary. The Southern Border is a National Security and Humanitarian Nightmare, but it can be easily fixed!” he added, New York Times reported.

 

In a separate tweet, he said: “The Democrats are ‘Border Deniers.’ They refuse to see or acknowledge the Death, Crime, Drugs and Human Trafficking at our Southern Border!”

In a fresh rebuke, the Republican-controlled US Senate has passed a proposal to terminate President Donald Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border.

Fifty-nine Senators, including a dozen Republicans, on Thursday voted in favor of the resolution of disapproval blocking Trump’s declaration and 41 others voted against it. The resolution passed the House last month, 245-182.

With the emergency declaration, the president is seeking an alternative way to get billions of dollars for the wall after Congress declined to give him funding.

Earlier in the day, Trump made an eleventh hour plea to Republican senators, and signaled he could be open to future changes to his emergency powers. But he also said that a vote for the resolution by Republicans would be vote for Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as well as "Crime and the Open Border Democrats!"

“Prominent legal scholars agree that our actions to address the National Emergency at the Southern Border and to protect the American people are both CONSTITUTIONAL and EXPRESSLY authorized by Congress....” Trump said in one of his tweets.

The Senate passed the resolution by a 54 to 46 tally, seeking to halt any US military involvement in the conflict, including providing targeting support for Saudi airstrikes, without authorization from Congress.

The resolution now heads to the Democrat-led House of Representatives, which is expected to overwhelmingly pass it, possibly this month. 

The resolution sets the foundation for what could become Trump’s first presidential veto, as White House advisers said earlier in the day that Trump would veto the resolution.101/202/213
