Pelosi hails 'overwhelming and bipartisan' vote to reject Trump's 'sham emergency declaration'

If you needed a translation of the Senate vote on the resolution against Donald Trump’s national emergency, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is here for you with her statement on the vote.

What happened: “The Congress has now voted on an overwhelming and bipartisan basis to reject President Trump’s effort to ignore the Constitution with his sham emergency declaration.”

Why it happened: “President Trump’s emergency declaration is an unlawful power grab that does violence to the Constitution and fundamentally alters the separation of powers.”

To summarize: “This is not an emergency and the Congress has declared in a strong bipartisan voice that the President’s fearmongering doesn’t make it one.”
