Trump vetoes congressional bill to stop US-Mexico border wall

President Donald Trump has vetoed a measure from Congress revoking his declaration of a national emergency at the US-Mexico border.
 
Lawmakers, including 12 Republicans, had passed the rejection resolution on Thursday in a surprising rebuke of Mr. Trump's pledge to build a border wall.
 
Congress will now need a two-thirds majority in both chambers to override him, which is unlikely to happen.
 
This is the first veto of Mr. Trump's presidency.
