Donald Trump wrote in a tweet that he would veto legislation that would end his national emergency declaration at the US border, if the bill passes the US Senate.
A big National Emergency vote today by The United States Senate on Border Security & the Wall (which is already under major construction). I am prepared to veto, if necessary. The Southern Border is a National Security and Humanitarian Nightmare, but it can be easily fixed!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 14, 2019
In February, the US House of Representatives voted 245 to 182 to revoke US President Donald Trump's emergency declaration.
Earlier, Trump claimed that by declaring a national emergency, he can appropriate funds for the wall's construction.
The national emergency declaration could free up $8 billion in federal funding to build a wall on the southern border. The Trump administration aims to divert military funding to install 234 miles' worth of steel barriers along the country's 1,950-mile border with Mexico.
