Watch Live As Trump Vetoes Congressional Bill To Overturn Border National Emergency

Following President Trump's vow to veto the Republican-led Senate vote to block his emergency declaration to fund his long-promised southern border wall, Trump will sit down with "angel moms" to override the Senate. 

Of note, the Senate does not have the votes to override Trump's veto - his first since becoming President. That said, Thursday's vote serves as a rebuke of the president by his own party over border security. 

Shortly after the Senate voted 59-41 to overturn Trump's February 15 national emergency which would allow him to allocate up to $8 billion towards the wall, Trump tweeted: "VETO!"

VETO!

"It’s pure and simple: It’s a vote for border security; it’s a vote for no crime," Trump told reporters prior to the Senate vote - which he called "a vote for Nancy Pelosi, Crime, and the Open Border Democrats!" in a Thursday morning tweet.

A vote for today’s resolution by Republican Senators is a vote for Nancy Pelosi, Crime, and the Open Border Democrats!

Trump is also likely to address Thursday's mass shootings in New Zealand in which several individuals attacked two mosques, killing 49 people. One gunman penned a lengthy manifesto in which he praised President Trump as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose."
