President Donald Trump signed his first veto Friday as he took action to block moves designed to sabotage his national emergency declaration on border security.

As promised, President Trump saved his declaration against a resolution passed by the House and Senate to end the emergency at the US Southern Border.

The move against the emergency was intended to halt construction of the long-promised border wall and twelve Senate Republicans sided with Democrats on the issue.

“It is definitely a national emergency," President Trump declared as he prepared to sign the order.

"Therefore to defend the safety and security of all Americans, I will be signing and issuing a formal veto of this reckless resolution and that’s what it was.”

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was immediately triggered by Trump's move and responded by vowing to attempt to override the president’s veto.

Taking to Twitter, Pelosi unloaded on Presdient Trump, calling the emergency at the border a "#FakeEmergency."

The National Emergencies Act gives Congress the authority to pass a resolution striking down an emergency declaration with a majority vote.

But that action is supposed to be based on whether lawmakers feel an emergency or crisis exists – not on the perceived constitutionality of the declaration.

Only the Supreme Court can determine if the declaration is constitutional.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said it best.

“Today the National Securities Act required the Senate to answer one question,” he said.

“Whether there is an ongoing emergency at our southern border.”

President Trump issued the first veto of his presidency Friday afternoon against a resolution passed by the House and Senate to end the national emergency declaration on border security.

“Today I am vetoing this resolution. Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it,” Trump said from the Oval Office.

“People hate the word invasion, but that’s what it is,” Trump continued, calling the resolution “dangerous” and “reckless.”

The President was flanked by DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Attorney General William Barr and a number of other law enforcement officials.

Angel Moms, mothers of children killed by illegal aliens, were also in attendance.

“The fact that this is an emergency is undeniable,” Nielsen said.

Barr also made remarks and said President Trump’s emergency declaration on the issue is “firmly grounded” in the law.

Earlier today, President Trump thanked Republicans who voted against the measure.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will hold a vote to override President Trump’s veto next week.
