A wall along the southern border is getting some push back on the senate side is setting the stage for his first possible veto. Want to Zach is asked the White House for us this morning to see my friends. D'antoni still. You actually asked the president in the Oval Office if he thought Republicans would support the joint resolution to invalidate. His emergency declaration and that what and he said. That's right this slip the last time we heard from president trump in the Oval Office before he went to Vietnam and and he told me at that time that he thought Republicans a way to stick by him we didn't know. If there would be enough Republican support for this a joint resolution. That would invalidate president trumps work on the border wall. We found out today the big headline is with senator Rand Paul now saying that he simply can not to continue to support. In his words an overreach of the executive branch. He will be voting in favor of this democratically sponsored bill so it is now going to pass because senator cook Susan Collins of Maine.

Line as well now that they know that it's going to pass and they're not going to be the ones issuing that deciding vote.
