threatening Thursday morning after three Republican lawmakers went up to the White House the previous evening, looking for a way to stave off an expected rebuke to the Senate over his national emergency declaration on the US-Mexico border.
Sens. Ted Cruz (Tex.), Lindsey O. Graham (SC) and Ben Sasse (Neb.) Are unexpectedly arriving as Trump has a family home dinner, according to two people who are familiar with the episode discuss a sensitive things.
Senators argued for a last-minute proposal aimed at satisfying concerns by senators who wanted to vote on Thursday afternoon for a bill that annulled Trump's declaration, people said. Details about their proposal were not immediately learned.
People familiar with what the White House lawyer said was said to explain why the proposal would not work, and the discussion was ultimately unsuccessful, irritating Trump, who renewed he has the threat of a veto on a tweet early in the morning on Thursday.
The attempted intervention in the last minute paid attention to the concerns of senators like Cruz who had given serious postponement of the constitutionality of Trump's declaration but he did not want to cross him with a key vote at security boundary .
"A major National Emergency vote today by The United States Senate at Border Security and the Wall (which is under major construction)," Trump told his tweet early Thursday. "I'm ready to veto, if necessary. The Southern Border is a National Security and Humanitarian Nightmare, but it may be easy!"
Trump declared the national emergency on February 15 as a way to prevent Congress and recover the money he wanted to build barriers to along the southern border.
The president constitutes the issue of national security rules, whereas Democrats and some Republicans focus on constitutional issues that depend on Trump. The control of Congress on government spending.
On Wednesday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), who took the lead in the effort to make a compromise aimed at reducing future presidential emergency powers, became the latest Republican to announce plans that have broken and voted for a resolution to repeal the declaration Trump came to the floor on Thursday afternoon.
Lee made the talk shortly after hearing directly from Trump that his law was not acc uncertain.
Lee's position is all but ensuring that there is a huge support to the Senate on Thursday for a resolution of disapproval, which passed the House. The passing of the Senate will send a bill to Trump, which forces him to issue the first bet on his administration to strike it.
Although Congress lacked votes to override Trump's veto, the Senate vote would remain repeatedly as a shameful opponent of a Trump initiative key in the hands of his own party. And it will come a day after a Senate vote to end US support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen, marking unusual twin rebukes from a Senate that often bends on Trump's wishes.
Thursday's vote on national emergency was expected in the afternoon, shortly after Trump was scheduled to appear on Capitol Hill for a "Friends of Ireland" lunch with Irish lawmakers and Prime Ministers Leo Varadkar.
White House officials continue to lobby the Republics to return Trump
What we want to see this Senate this week stand on the president, to stand in the president's declaration of a national emergency, " Vice President Pence said in an interview passed Thursday morning at Fox News. "A vote against national emergency by President Trump is a vote against border security. A vote against national emergency declaration by the president is a vote to deny the humanitarian and security crisis that occurs in our Southern border. "
Trump also warned GOP Senators against crossing the national emergency, speaking Wednesday at the White House, saying he would be" a bad thing "to vote against the declaration.
" We'll see if I do not need to do the betto, "Trump said.
On Thursday, Trump called Democrats on another tweet, calling them" Border Deniers. "
" They refused to see or acknowledge Death , Crime, Drugs and Human Trafficking on our Southern Border! "
Senators in favor of the declaration of Trump's declaration expressed the upsurge of Thursday's crackdown on how he tried to frame the debate.  "This offensive audible is characterized as either you are for open boundaries or for the president's wall," Angus King (I-Me.) Told MSNBC. "That is nonsense, and I am tired of hearing arguments. … True about the Constitution. Will Congress give the power to its president and every future president say, 'Do not give me the money I want for any project I want and therefore I will call it an emergency and do this to myself? & # 39; "
