President Donald Trump issued the first veto of his presidency on Friday, rejecting legislation that aimed to strike down his emergency declaration for building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.


In vetoing the resolution, Trump said it was his “duty” to do so and that Republican voters were overwhelmingly against the measure.

In a Senate vote Thursday, 12 Republicans joined Democrats in rebuking the president by voting to block his declaration. Congress lacks the votes needed to override Trump’s veto.
