Trump vetoes national emergency resolution

            By Michael Hernandez</p>  <p>WASHINGTON (AA) - President Donald Trump issued the first veto of his presidency Friday, overturning a congressional effort to repeal the national emergency he declared to build his long-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall. </p>  <p>The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives is expected to reconsider the resolution later this month, but it is unlikely to secure the two-thirds majority to override Trump's veto. </p>  <p>The same holds true for the Senate, where just 59 lawmakers in the 100-member chamber voted for the resolution Thursday. 

"Congress' vote to deny the crisis on the southern border is a vote against reality," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.
