Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) reportedly warned President Trump this week that declaring a national emergency to build his U.S.-Mexico border wall could create a rift in the GOP conference.
The Washington Post reported Friday that McConnell told Trump the Senate could pass a resolution disapproving the emergency declaratioN.

McConnell is Deep State scum. This is proof.
Drop Dead Mitch!
Question is: does he have authority to declare emergency to build wall or not.
Until its reported somewhere other than the Washington Post by way of the Hill, its not proof.
We need to kick one side of that “rift” right out of the party then.
Screw the GOP Conference.
only if McConnell allows such a stupid measure to be brought up for a vote
The GOP is worthless, therefore the GOP Conference is worthless, therefore McConnell is worthless.
Therefore, ignore the poltroon.
“The Washington Post reported Friday that McConnell told Trump the Senate could pass a resolution disapproving the emergency declaration.”
I read about this, they still wouldn’t have enough votes to override a Trump veto.
We spend billions $$$ - and so many Americans’ lives lost! - to protect other countries’ borders. But we’re not supposed to protect our own country’s borders?
F THE GOP.
And this is why they’ve been allowed to kick the illegal immigration can down the road for thirty five years, people like McTurtle.
Since most the GOP establishment is open borders, obeying big donors like the Kochs, this story sounds very credible to me. If GOP were for the wall, they had two years to approve it. They did nothing. So now theyre reportedly warning Trump not to act on his own. You really dont believe that?
Guess the Chamber of Cheap Labor got to the Turtle.
1. Im not sure Trump can veto a Fongressional vote of disapproval
2. Even if he can veto it, Dont assume there arent 18 Republicans to join the Dems and override a veto. Most GOP senators are open borders, in thrall to billionaire donors
Yep, Koch and the open-borders Chamber of Commerce have passed their orders to McConnell and the Uniparty confederacy. UNPATRIOTIC TRAITORS, ALL.
So what. A resolution is not law and the president’s position would be backed by law.
The declaration-of-emergency law gives Congress the authority to disapprove a presidentscdeclaration. Whether he can veto that vote by Congress, I dont know
Sure he does.
The REAL question is, does McConnell have 20 votes in his caucus to remove the President, along with 45 Democrats and two independents?
Obviously, there was more to the meeting between Pence and the GOP caucus than we know at this time. Who said what to whom?
My best guess is that McConnell told Pence, "If Trump declares an emergency to build the wall, tell Karen to order new drapes for the Lincoln bedroom".
LOL. POTUS can burn the Party of Lincoln to the ground with one tweet. McConnell (R-K Street) best be careful what he wishes for.
