Blunt Explains Vote Against Trump’s National Emergency At Border

Even a month later, the sting of U.S. Senator Roy Blunt voting against the President’s National Emergency at the southern border still hurts in southwest Missouri. Blunt joined us on the KZRG Morning News Watch Friday morning and explained his vote.

“I basically sided with the Constitution. I think this is pretty dangerous territory if you believe that the balance of power of the Constitution is really the strength of the Constitution. I work for six million people, some of them are mad at me everyday, including, occasionally some of my really good friends, and I hate that, of course. I’ve been supportive of the President and he knows that. Anyone who looks at my record knows that.”

Blunt added that nearly 25 percent of republicans in the Senate also sided with democrats in voting against the President’s National Emergency.
