UPDATE: Twelve Republican senators joined with Democrats to approve a resolution denouncing Donald Trump's declaration of a 'national emergency' to gain funding for his long-sought border wall by a vote of 59-41.

Donald Trump went on a pre-emptive Twitter rant in advance of a vote in the GOP-controlled Senate today on a Democratic resolution to block Trump's emergency declaration in order to get funds for his beloved border wall.

In his tweet, Trump threatens to veto the resolution which would be his first use of veto powers while in the White House.



So far, seven Republican senators have announced they will vote for the resolution - Sens. Mitt Romney, Mike Lee, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Thom Tillis, Rand Paul, and Lamar Alexander.

The Hill suggests Sens. Marco Rubio, Ben Sasse, Ron Johnson and Jerry Moran could join the list of Republicans voting against the president.
