Barr welcomes Trump's veto of Congressional resolution

United States Attorney General William Barr welcomed on Friday President Donald Trump's to veto the Congressional resolution blocking his national emergency declaration over the situation at the US southern border. Following Trump's speech at the White House, Barr said the president's national emergency declaration was "clearly authorized under the law" although both Houses of the Congress voted to block it.

The attorney general also stated that the situation at the US border with Mexico is indeed an emergency, which requires drastic measures.

Trump's veto marks the first such decision since he became president. He said that it is his "duty" to veto the resolution although the Congress had "freedom" to pass it.
