Summary

Michael Clevenger/The Courier Journal, Louisville Courier JournalSenate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hoped President Donald Trump wouldn't declare a national emergency over border security, but said Monday that he was "obviously" unsuccessful in arguing against the move.McConnell said it's clear the U.S. Senate will have the votes to pass a resolution of disapproval, which seeks to block the emergency declaration, but he said it will be vetoed by the president and, "in all likelihood," the veto would be upheld by the House of Representatives."I was one of those hoping the president would not take the national emergency route," McConnell told reporters Monday in Louisville. "Once you decide to do that, I said I would support it, but I was hoping he wouldn't take that particular path."The latest: Rand Paul says he'll vote to block Trump's emergency declarationAsked by a Courier Journal reporter whether he was concerned future Democratic presidents would use a similar tactic to fund issues like climate change or gun control, McConnell said he was.
