As the Senate considers legislation to terminate his national emergency declaration, President Donald Trump said GOP lawmakers in favor of the measure would be voting for House Speaker Nancy “Pelosi, crime and open border Democrats.”

Trump’s comments about the bill came in three tweets posted Thursday morning.

He wrote: “Prominent legal scholars agree that our actions to address the National Emergency at the Southern Border and to protect the American people are both CONSTITUTIONAL and EXPRESSLY authorized by Congress....”

Trump added: “....If, at a later date, Congress wants to update the law, I will support those efforts, but today’s issue is BORDER SECURITY and Crime!!! Don’t vote with Pelosi!

And he said: “A vote for today’s resolution by Republican Senators is a vote for Nancy Pelosi, Crime, and the Open Border Democrats!”

Trump has said he is “prepared to veto” the legislation that would end his national emergency declaration at the U.S.-Mexico border. The Senate was expected to pass the bill later in the day.
