Trump signs first veto of his presidency. President Donald Trump on Friday vetoed legislation attempting to strike down his declaration of a national emergency at the southern border during an Oval Office event from the White House.
It is the first time in his two years in office that Trump has used his presidential veto power to block legislation. It comes after a dozen Senate Republicans joined Democrats to rebuke Trump's use of his national emergency power to bypass Congress and fund construction of a border wall.
Trump was surrounded at Friday's event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have had loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President's veto event. Ref. CNN.
