This is certainly not a good week for Trump.

The Senate voted Wednesday for a second time to block President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration, rebuking the president over his attempt to fund a border wall without congressional approval.
In a 54-41 vote, the Senate approved a resolution to disapprove of Trump’s emergency declaration, including 11 Republicans. The vote comes after the Trump administration announced it would divert $3.6 billion in military construction funding from several states to build his border wall.
Sadly it is very likely that Trump will veto this resolution, but at least now the Senate is on record as rebuking his plan to steal money from military families in order to build his useless border wall.
I am also gratified to see that Alaska’s own Senator Lisa Mirkowski voted in favor of this resolution.
It is not much, since she surely knows he will veto it, but at least it is something.
