  • White House tries to avert Senate defeat on border emergency

That would be enough to kill the resolution in the Senate, provided no other Republican senators oppose of Trump's declaration or alter their position. And the votes come as the GOP has spent weeks debating how to soften their blow.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), who'd crafted the face-saving resolution, told senators that Trump was refusing to accept his plan on Wednesday afternoon, two sources who were present for the conversation told TPM.

If Trump would agree to sign legislation handcuffing future emergency declarations, it could help the White House reduce opposition among GOP senators to his border emergency declaration in Thursday's vote.

His Wednesday schedule, released to the press, shows he is set to receive a series of policy briefings followed by a meeting with Republican senators and a photo with the new White House interns.

But Wednesday, it became clear that the party was out of options and members would be forced to vote to stay with or rebuke Trump on his signature campaign promise.

"There's been numerous efforts to engage with the vice president and the president, and the president's not persuaded that he should support it right now", said Sen. "All that's left to do is to vote".

His latest refusal to compromise increases the likelihood not just that the bill will pass the Senate, but that a large number of Republicans cross their president on a high-profile vote for arguably the first time in his presidency.

Senate Republican Whip John Thune of South Dakota said that even if Trump agreed to back the Article One Act, it likely wouldn't prevent the disapproval resolution from passing.

The vote is scheduled for Thursday. "It's not a vote on precedent, because if you take a look at what President Obama did with DACA and so many other things, that was no precedent".

Billionaire leftist Tom Steyer took to Twitter on Monday to slam House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., over her recent statement that pursuing impeachment against President Donald Trump was not worth the backlash. The resolution now goes to the House, which approved a very similar measure earlier this year, to be passed again.

Lee told a reporter for The Hill that he'll vote for the disapproval resolution.

So far, four Republican senators have said they'll vote with Democrats to oppose Trump's emergency order. Resolutions that once would have languished in a Republican-controlled House are now proposals that sail through the Democratic-controlled body and will finally be delivered to the President's desk.

"After Pelosi's comments, Republicans countered, asking why Democrats would have issued 81 document requests to people associated with President Trump if they're not already planning on impeachment". Maybe Republicans did notice the 2018 election.

But during the GOP lunch, Trump called Sen.

That 30-day approval window would apply after Trump's current border declaration expires in one year, meaning it could remain in place for at least one year without congressional approval.

The senators who met Tuesday with Pence were Tillis, Alexander, Lee, Rob Portman of OH and Patrick Toomey of Pennsylvania. "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States". Tim Scott, a Republican from SC. The issue, he tweeted, "should not be thought of any other way". Jim Risch, an Idaho Republican who's the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told CNN.
