“We’ll fight him in the Congress, we’ll fight him in the courts and we’ll fight him in the court of public opinion,” Pelosi told reporters at an event in Texas. “What he’s doing is wrong and the Republicans know it.”
Pelosi’s comments show Democrats have no plans to back down from the fight against allocating billions of dollars for the border wall, which Trump has pursued in fervor as his top domestic priority.
“Hopefully the President won’t veto it — or maybe he’ll just withdraw it, as some of his Republican, the Republican senators are asking him to do because they know that it undermines the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi said Trump is “asking us to ignore the oath of office that we take to protect and defend the Constitution by this declaration.” She said she anticipates the resolution will pass the Senate.
If the President vetoes the measure, Congress would need two-thirds of its members in both chambers to overrule the veto, which is unlikely.
“I think it’s very hard to have a veto,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi said Trump’s declaration is “undermining our system of checks and balances,” which she described as the “wisdom of our Constitution.”
