The vote on the #NationalEmergency gave #Republicans a clear choice: put the Constitution first, or put @realDonaldTrump first.

The Founding Fathers granted the Congress the power of the purse to decide how to allocate funds.
Yet many #Republicans will raid funds appropriated by Congress to our armed forces to pay for @realDonaldTrump’s Big Dumb Wall.

This creates precedent for a future Democratic president to act unilaterally on real crises, like mass shootings and #climate change.
Next it will be up to #Republicans in Congress to decide how to respond to a presidential veto.

We will see where they stand in this contest between #Trump and the #Constitution.
