President, President Trump And Congress discussed on Ben Shapiro
"On to President Trump and his emergency declaration. So the Senate voted yesterday to reject President Trump's emergency declaration immediately. Trump tweeted video all capital letters, the senate's resolution was passed fifty nine to forty one to overturn his national emergency declaration them saying we didn't delegate you this kind of power, and you are not allowed to simply overrule us by declaring a national emergency. And it does show that the national emergency power is to certain extent being abused. Because the fact is the national emergency act was designed to allow the president to act in the absence of congressional opinion making or weighing in the reasons declared national emergency is you don't actually have time to go to congress for the appropriations you just declare national emergency was the first time that I think has ever happened or congress has explicitly rejected national emergency declaration from the president the reason for that because the president negotiated with congress. He didn't get what he wanted. And then he declared a national. Emergency that is violation of the constitutional order. That is not how the constitution is supposed to work. President Trump said he was gonna veto this. He said I look forward to veto the just past democrat inspired resolution, which would open borders while increasing crime, drugs and trafficking in our country. I think all the strong Republicans who voted support border security and our desperately needed wall. Now, I know a lot of senators and members of the house who voted in favor of upholding the national emergency declaration. I don't think that was the right move. It only that was the constitutional move. And in fact, you saw a bunch of Republicans who switched their position on this simply because President Trump does have a massive amounts of support. The fact is that a bunch of senators flipped on this most prominently Senator Ben Sasse, Nebraska. He had said earlier, we absolutely have a crisis at the border as a constitutional conservative. I don't want a future democratic president unilaterally rewriting gun laws or climate policy. If we get used to presidents just declaring an emergency anytime, they can't get what they want from congress. It will be almost impossible to go back to a constitutional system of checks and balances over the past decades the legislative branch. Given away too much power. And the executive branch has taken too much power that seems like a pretty good predicate for voting against the national emergency declaration. And then he voted in favor of the national emergency declaration. He said the reason he did. So is because he and Mike Lee had put forward a Bill that would have curbed generally the power to declare a national emergency. And that Bill had not been had not been agreed to by the president. Well, then why are you voting with him on this national emergency? That's still doesn't answer the question. The fact is this national emergency to one being declared right now is not in fact, legally national emergency. It is a national emergency in the common parlance, it is something that congress ought to do something about we ought to have a wall. The president doesn't get to overstep his injuries. 'cause he's doing something you like the measure of a principle is whether if the violation of the principle accomplishes, something that you want your for it or against it. So if you have a principal, and then it turns out that tossing out the principal in order to get something done appeals to you. So you toss out the principal. Then you're. Really didn't have the principal to begin with. You had a politics of convenience. It's not just Senator SAS who flipped on this sort of thing. Senator Thom Tillis wrote a full op Ed saying that he was not in favor of the national emergency declaration. He announced he would vote to terminate the national emergency declaration, and then he changed his mind and voted against terminating the national emergency declaration. And listen, I understand that. There is severe pressure on the senators from people who are sitting home and who are thinking. Okay. Well, all this really comes down to his do you wanna protect the border or not? But that is a failure educate your own voters, which is part of the job. There's been this move in national politics toward we will just appease whichever voters are in front of us. It's our job to give the voters what they want. Well, that's half your job the other half of your job is to help shape. What voters want it's a convince voters. It's go back home and give people the hard messages if you're not doing that. Then you're not acting as a good Representative. This is the difference between these sort of straight democratic representation model, and the Birkin model of representation had been Burke famously wrote that if you you're a Representative then it was not just your job to represent the temporary wishes of the public. It was your job to represent to act as as your own conscience. They elected you to use your own conscience. And if the people don't like it, then I suppose they can turn you out, but they should give you a solid. Listen. They should give you a solid. Listen again. I think Republican this should have passed with an overwhelming supermajority. It did not that is that his lack of principle on the part of a lot of Republicans, including many Republicans with whom I generally agree. I think there's a case to be made. I think that you've heard Representative Dan Crenshaw make that if you really believe. Leave that it is legal for the president to declare a national emergency under current powers. Then you vote in favor of this. But there are a bunch of people who said the president doesn't have those powers under the national emergencies act, and then they voted in favor of the president exercising powers. He doesn't have that's bad. And I ache the excuses. Listen, I hear the excuses the excuse that Democrats would do this. We'll do the exact same thing. That's true. That's why I'm not a democrat. It is true. Democrats would go along with violations of the constitutional order, which is why again, I am not a
President Trump, Senator Thom Tillis And Washington Post discussed on All Things Considered
"President Trump has held White House ceremonies to sign bills today for the first time he spoke from the Oval Office as he vetoed a Bill, and I have to in particular. Thank the Republicans, strong wonderful people the Republican senators that we're on our side and on the side of the border security. And on the side of doing what they have to keep our nation safe. They were very courageous yesterday. I appreciate that very much. This week dozen Senate Republicans joined Democrats voting to overturn President Trump's declaration of an emergency on the US Mexico border. The democratically controlled house already approved the measure late last month. There are not enough votes to override President Trump's veto and the emergency is still being challenged in court. So it's unclear how this will all turn out. We're gonna talk about the politics of this moment and other issues from the week in politics are Friday guests today are EJ down to the Washington Post and the Brookings Institution and Mary Katharine ham of CNN good to have you both with us for having me. So after two years of supporting President Trump's policies a dozen Republicans in the Senate and about as many in the house opposed the emergency declaration on the border. Mary Katherine how significant political statement. Do you think this is? Well, I think it matters. I agree with Senator Thom Tillis of two weeks ago wrote in the Washington Post that intellectually consistent to object to executive. Overreach in both the Obama administration in the Trump administration. I think it's a useful rebuke, obviously, they will not have enough to push back on this after he vetos, and we will get probably some more clarification from the courts, which will be helpful on executive thirty in general. But yeah. In the end, I think it's a it's a message. And it's extraordinary that twelve did crossover. There are several I wish had crossed over as

"I hate that the president has to use this statute. But it's a statutory grant to the president is been used fifty times. And I'm willing to support him this time never in the case where congress has just explicitly voted to block this from happening though. There's nothing in the statute that says what the limits are you don't like the statute rewrite. It may I ask you to respond to a point one of your fellow Republicans made this is your fellow Senator Thom Tillis who is right with you in saying he supports the president on border security. He thinks the president is rightly frustrated with how this is played out. But he says it's my responsibility to preserve the separation of powers and curb executive overreach in quote, what part of that. Do you disagree with was not executive overreach when the president's acting pursuant to statutory authority granted him by the congress is executive overreach. Fused deciding how to. Spend money that congress has voted to stop him from spending. That's what the whole statute allows them to do it allows him to take military construction money and reprogram reprogramming for a national emergency. If he declares one. He's not doing anything inconsistent with the statute, you've prided yourself on working with democratic presidents. I know you voted yes. To confirm justices. Keagan. And so to my pretty Bill under his leadership and the White House did a good job journa- bummer years.

And all of that will be dealt with publicly on the floor before we have the vote mister personally believe that the president's emergency declaration is legal. Part of what we were discussing today. Well, we're we're in the process away that the lawyer was there to make his arguments there were some counter argument. Richard total conclusion about. I wouldn't go to me for simple will I didn't go to law school. But we have some real serious lawyers are discussing that very issue. What is not in doubt? As it really is a crisis at the border. And it seems to me our colleagues on the other side are in denial. About that. And you can't blame the president for trying to use whatever tool. He thinks he has.
