Schumer thanks Republicans rejecting 'emergency'

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The U.S. Senate on Thursday rebuked President Donald Trump for the second time in as many days, with 12 Republicans joining Democrats to end Trump's emergency declaration at the southern border, and the president vowing a veto.

The 59-41 vote on Thursday was a bipartisan repudiation of Trump's decision to take money designated for various programs and redirect it to building the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border that he promised during his 2016 presidential campaign.
