WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump promises to fight Democrats and "The Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution, and I have a duty to veto it, "he said as he sent a bill that had already ended his declaration of a national emergency ̵
The day before, a dozen Republican senators joined Democrats to pass the proposal, an unusually large number of GOPs abandoning from the Trump line.
While Trump played the fray on Friday – "I do not need votes," she says – demonstrating that by Congress in the power of the wallet she weakens institutional support for the wall, and for in his authority, to the Republican Washington.
That is, although some Republicans claim that they are for the wall put a line at Trump declaring a national emergency and seizing spending decisions from Congress to do so
But some Republicans say which can not be a bad thing for Trump as he leads the 2020 election.
On the surface, this implies that he will have a harder time wins the budgets against a Congress that is clearly increasingly inclined to insist on its own prerogatives and to prevent her. But Trump does not have any internal policy advice items approaching the importance of political politics, and wants to campaign against Washington again.
It is better if he can run, even a little, against both parties, said Matt Schlapp, a Trump ally and chairman of the American Conservative Union.
"They gave him a gift," Schlapp said about Congress sending him a resolution. "The president is at his strongest when he is fighting and he is seen as credible when he is fighting the members of his own party … especially when the principles are on his side."
Michael Steele, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee and often criticized at Trump, said the president said Friday that he was not concerned with Republican defenders. Steele said she feels a small public theater playing at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, the boulevard running between the White House and the Capitol.
"In the vote itself, there are a lot of high-drama drama about what these senators did," he says, noting that there is no chance of prohibition of the president being overthrown and that most Republicans who have been defected will not be up for re-election next year. "I'm not convinced."
As for Trump, Steele added, "he loves the fight, he does not care about who he is fighting, it does not matter whether it is Republican or Democratic … for him, in politics, it reaffirms it for his base is why they sent him to Washington. "
Finally, courts decide whether the spending of Trump passes to the constitution. Today, Democrats and some Republicans declare that his decision to withdraw money from existing projects and reclaim them to build the wall is a violation of constitutional development by Congress to spend on things.
"The House and the Senate have refused to have the power of the President, but the president has chosen to continue to oppose the Constitution, the Congress and the will of the Americans," said Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. a statement issued after veto.
Presidential procedures, including Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, has raised constitutional concerns, while others are concerned only that the future of a Democratic president will use the precedent set by Trump to spend money on pet projects not approved by Congress.
Rachel Bovard, the policy director at the Conservative Policy Institute and a former assistant to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Who mentioned constitutional voting concerns against Thursday's president, said that the emergency declaration did not violate the separation of the power principle.
"The Constitution is out of crisis, the borders are," Bovard said in a text exchange on NBC. "The declaration of the president follows the law passed by Congress. They used the money and allowed a law allows this wall to be built. If Congress wishes to change the law that the future presidents do not allow to take this action, they are within their rights to do so. "
At Bovard, the question is a political, not a legal person.
"Trump uses the power Congress has given him to secure the border – more than Congress seems ready to do," he said. "So what the real bet is whether or not Republicans are uniting security boundaries going to 2020. "
The movement of power to the executive branch, and away from Congress, is a long-running trend, said Mack McLarty, who served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton.
As he sees the use of Trump executive power in this amount – including the veto and the original decision to transfer money around – as "unique" as it "interferes with the rights of Congress … terms of allocation funds, "he said Friday's action was relevant in the context of the emphasis placed by Trump on the wall.
