Schumer: Dems Will Have More Votes on Emergency Declaration

During a press conference on Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer stated that Senate Democrats intend to bring the resolution against President Trump’s national emergency declaration up for further votes.

“[T]he president will first veto it. It goes to the House. It won’t have the 2/3ds,” Schumer said. “But I believe the law allows us to bring it up every six months, and certainly, we would intend to do that.”

“We’ve got to defend [government checks and balances] ten times, even if they knock it down, in hopes of winning the eleventh,” Schumer added.
