(Worthy News) - President Trump said Thursday he will veto a measure passed with bipartisan support in the Senate that terminates his emergency declaration at the southern border, setting up the first veto of his presidency.

Twelve Republicans joined Senate Democrats in a 59-41 vote passing the resolution of disapproval. The vote was a significant rebuke to the president, who declared a national emergency Feb. 15 to bypass Congress and divert federal funds for construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
