GOP Senators ‘Overthinking’ Vote on Our ‘MAJOR NATIONAL EMERGENCY’

His Wednesday schedule, released to the press, shows he is set to receive a series of policy briefings followed by a meeting with Republican senators and a photo with the new White House interns.

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he "greatly" appreciated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opposing impeaching him, saying "he's just not worth it".

President Donald Trump is lobbying Republican senators to vote against legislation that would block his declaration of an emergency along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Trump tweets: "We have a MAJOR NATIONAL EMERGENCY at our Border and the People of our Country know it very well!" Since the Democratic-run House voted last month to block Trump, Senate passage would send the resolution to the White House, where it would face a certain veto.

He questioned the perception the impeachment of Bill Clinton backfired on Republicans and noted the GOP went on to take or hold the White House in three of the next five presidential elections.

A group of GOP senators is pushing a proposal that would limit future National Emergency Declarations, and are seeking a commitment that the President would publicly support it, in exchange for dropping their opposition to the current national emergency. Its fate is unclear.

Although four Republican senators have already announced they will vote to nullify the president's emergency declaration, one of them - Sen.

The White House and GOP senators are working on a compromise that would limit the power of presidents to declare national emergencies on their own.

Under the emergency declaration that Trump signed on February 15, he would take money from other federal programs to build the barrier. Some Republicans think Trump went too far in declaring an emergency, but they also are eager to avoid defying a president popular with conservative voters.

Trump was referring to an interview published Monday in the Washington Post Magazine in which Pelosi, who returned to power after Democrats won decisively in last year's midterms, said, "I'm not for impeachment". If Trump would commit to signing a bill that would handcuff future emergency declarations, some of those senators might support his border declaration.
