A new poll may not prefer to oust President Trump, but that does not mean that there is no fear from American voters. Veyar Justin Kirk has the story.

US President Donald Trump is expected to veto a congressional resolution on Friday that would cancel his national emergency declaration at the Mexican border, using force for the first time in his presidency to maintain a top priority.

Trump's veto comes the day after a dozen Senate Republicans joined all Democrats in reprimanding the president's declaration of a national emergency in February to free more than $ 6 billion for the promised wall along the southwestern border.

Democrats have accused Trump of producing a crisis to build support for the wall, noting the concerns of people trying to move to the US illegally are at an historic low.GPR critics, for the time being, have said they are concerned that Trump's emergency situation is finally trying to make around Congress's power of wallet .

But Trump noted that he was running in 2016 on the promise of a border wall (though he also promised repeatedly that Mexico would pay for it). The White House said it believed additional barriers would cause both flow and illicit drugs. Others claimed that most illegal drugs come through entry points.

The White House set an event for 13:30 EDT at the Oval Office. White House Deputy Secretary of State Hogan Giddley said Trump would veto the decision at the same event.

Although there was bilateral support for the elimination of Trump's emergency, the opposition was less than a two-thirds majority required to overtake a presidential veto. Democrats promised to return the issue to the floors of the House and the Senate within six months – which they are allowed to do by law – forcing the Republicans to vote again on the issue.

The state of emergency is the last meeting point in the new government, divided in Washington, after Democrats demanded control over the house in mid-year elections. President Barack Obama Issued his first veto after less than a year in office to block an expenditure bill that became redundant when Congress passed an entire year's index that day.

President George W. Bush did not veto one during his first term. When the Democrats took control of Congress in 2007, Bush issued 142 veto threats and imposed 11 of them. Obama and Bush took out a dozen veto soldiers each.

Trump's decision to issue the veto was not a surprise: the White House had officially threatened to do so before the idea cleared the house. Shortly after the Senate vote on Thursday, Trump published a short note about Twitter.

"veto!" That's all he read.
