Trump Vetoes Measure To End Wall Declaration

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump issued the first veto of his presidency on Friday to block a measure passed by Democrats and Republicans in Congress that would terminate his emergency declaration for a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico.

The veto, made necessary after a strong and unusual rebuke from members of Trumpโ€™s Republican party, capped a week that left Trump politically wounded, at least temporarily, as immigration and his signature promise of a wall become a flashpoint again in the 2020 presidential campaign.
