House blocks Trump's emergency declaration

Feb 27, 2019 16:59 IST

The United States House of Representatives voted to block US President Donald Trump's emergency declaration, a move that could get him billions of extra dollars to build his border wall with Mexico. 13 Republicans joined the Democrats as they pushed the move, with 245 votes against 182. Trump has formally issued his veto threat, but Congress seems unlikely to manage the two-thirds majorities needed to override the veto.
