FAST FIVE: Watch Live As Trump Vetoes Congressional Bill To Overturn Border National Emergency

Published by on

Following President Trump's vow to veto the Republican-led Senate vote to block his emergency declaration to fund his long-promised southern border wall, Trump will sit down with “angel moms” to override the Senate.  Of note, the Senate does not have the votes to override Trump's veto – his first since becoming President.

That said, Thursday's vote serves as a rebuke of the president by his own party over border security.  Shortly after the Senate voted 59-41 to overturn Trump's February 15 national emergency which would allow him to allocate up to $8 billion towards the wall, Trump tweeted: “VETO!” VETO.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 14, 2019 “It's pure and simple: It's a vote for border security; it's a vote for no crime,” Trump told reporters prior to the Senate vote – which he called “a vote for Nancy Pelosi, Crime, and the Open Border Democrats!” in a Thursday morning tweet.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 14, 2019 Trump is also likely to address Thursday's mass shootings in New Zealand in which several individuals attacked two mosques, killing 49 people.

One gunman penned a lengthy manifesto in which he praised President Trump as “a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.”  Watch: .
