On Monday, Mitch McConnell said he expects a resolution blocking the President’s emergency declaration to pass the Senate but will not be able to override Trump’s veto.
McConnell stated this to reporters in Kentucky, “I think what is clear in the Senate is that there will be enough votes to pass the resolution of disapproval, which will then be vetoed by the president and then in all likelihood the veto will be upheld in the House.”
The Senate votes on the resolution on March 15th and is looking to be around 51 votes from Democrats and Republicans of disapproval.
GOP Senators have concerns about the President’s actions because it can cause future Presidents to do declare national emergencies to get what they want through.
Most GOP Senators support the President but hope he takes a different path at the same time
