Sanders Nails It When Asked What Trump’s Doing to Keep GOPers From Blocking Emergency: ‘He’s Doing His Job’

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a Monday press conference that President Donald Trump is “doing his job” by lobbying Senate lawmakers to support his emergency declaration at the southern border and taking action on the crisis.

When asked by reporters what measures President Trump is taking to prevent more Senate Republicans from backing the resolution of disapproval to reject his declaration, Sanders said the president was “doing what Congress should be doing” and that he has “a constitutional duty to protect the people of this country.”

The press secretary went on to say there is a “humanitarian and national security crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border and that the president is “doing his job” by addressing it. Sanders continued on, saying that because Congress “failed to do so,” he is using the “constitutional authority that Congress granted him.”

Sanders added that the president was talking to senators “every single day” to promote his emergency declaration.

President Trump is facing growing opposition from Republican lawmakers over the national emergency declaration he made last month to secure funding for his proposed border wall along the southern border.

So far, four GOP senators — Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) — have announced they will vote against the measure. The measure is expected to be brought to the Senate floor for a vote on Friday, but no vote has been officially scheduled yet.

Maybe the Democraps should pay attention to the reports of infectious diseases being brought into the US by the Invaders and that they are being taken to American hospitals (by CBP and ICE Agents) to be treated on the taxpayers’ dime. Some of the diseases have been under control here for 100 years; but are now coming back by the Dimwits friends. I’d suggest the Invaders ALL go to Commiefornia because that State of corruption doesn’t mind throwing excess taxpayer money down the toilet.
