Trump overrides Congress for border emergency

United States President Donald Trump exercised his veto power again amid the second initiative started on Capitol Hil to declare his national emergency declaration void. He used the tool to divert funds to the construction and upgrades to barriers on the border with Mexico.

He blocked the first resolution in March. The House of Representatives passed the latest one two weeks ago. Trump declared emergency on February 15.

The projects in question are worth over $6 billion, more than what Congress approved after heated discussions. "The situation on our southern border remains a national emergency, and our armed forces are still needed to help confront it," Trump said.
