Schumer slams Trump over veto

United States Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer blasted on Friday President Donald Trump over his decision to veto the Congressional resolution to block the national emergency declaration.

Schumer said he is not surprised "that the president holds the rule of law and our Constitution in minimal regard," stressing that "there is no emergency" at the US-Mexico border. He noted that Congress "has refused to fund his wall multiple times," adding that Mexico won't pay for it either. As Trump has decided to "trample all over the Constitution," Schumer underlined, "we Democrats in the Senate wil never stop defending our country from an overreaching president."

Earlier, US president vetoed the Congressional resolution aimed at blocking the national emergency he declared over the situation at the southern US border.
