Trump forced his first veto after the republican defection

president of the united states Donald Trump has so far never taken to its ultimate legal weapon against the congress: the veto. Now it looks to become current in the two questions in the same week, possibly the same day, the republican senator Rand Paul describes as ”remarkable”.

the republican dominated senate, with the numbers 54-46 pass a resolution that requires the president, within 30 days, withdraw all military personnel who are in or affect Yemen, where they are not fighting al-Qaeda.

the Resolution is seen as a rebuke of the White house faded in reaction to the assassination of the saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Murder movie soundtrack of saudi Arabia, which is the united states's closest allies in the arab world and deeply involved in the Jemenkriget.

a Few hours before the vote, explained the White house would veto it if the resolution went through. Its actual premise was incorrect, it was.

It must pass the house of representatives before it lands on Trumps table, but according to observers, it may already be made today, Thursday.

the senate vote on another resolution, which is also a thorn in the eye of Trump.

to stop the national emergency the president has declared that, without the approval of congress get the military money to build the promised wall against Mexico.

The democratic-dominated house of representatives hammered through the resolution on 26 February. Even if many senators are holding the cards tight to the chest in the last, most things suggest that it may even in the senate.

Late on Wednesday said the republican Louisianasenatorn John Kennedy that it ”is clear” that the resolution will go through.

Even for the usually Trumplojala republicans appear to be the president's decision on the emergency at Mexikogränsen as if not unreasonable so troublesome very out of step with the constitution.

try to resolve the issue without going to a vote. Tuesday brought a glimmer of hope for the split republicans on a deal with the White house. The deal was that the Republicans would vote down the resolution (and thereby approve the decision on the case of emergency) in exchange for the president agreeing to restrict his power to declare national emergencies in the future.

But the head of state did not like the idea.

– this president wants to, just as little as any other president give up the power obtained from congress earlier in the story, say a senator, who wishes to remain anonymous, to The Hill.

There is another option, driven by republican senators Ted Cruz and Lamar Alexander, who's not about to stop the state of emergency in itself, but limit the president's ability to move money from important parts of the defense to murbygget.

The proposal, however, has been on the table a time without having to muster more enthusiasm.

happy to produce it to the republicans in congress are either with him or against him and thus with the Democrats. But the republican senators who have chosen to go against the White house on these issues stresses that it is not in the first place is to condemn the president but to restate the case for the constitution.

"It is remarkable to see congress fight to snatch back power from the executive branch," says the republican Kentuckysenatorn Rand Paul to Politico.

Rand Paul are among those who declared that he is against Trump in both questions.

– It should be congress that declares war, and it should be the congress that spends the money. I mean, there are two cornerstones of the constitution, " says Paul.

if it goes as expected, put their veto, the congress has one final opportunity to take back the initiative. But it required a two-thirds majority in order to thwart a veto. As the situation is today, there is not the margin.
