    Donald Trump says he will use his presidential veto power for the first time to secure funding for his border wall after Congress today delivered a harsh rebuff to his declaration of a national emergency on border security.

    The 59 to 41 vote came after 12 Republican Senators voted with Democrats despite intense lobbying by the president prior to the vote.
