Paul, other Republicans could vote against Trump

Republicans in the Senate could side with Democrats when it comes to President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border.

Kentucky's Rand Paul has already said he'd vote against it, and thinks nine other Republicans will, too. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter told Newsmax that doesn't sit well with her.

“I do not think it is principled at all … for Rand Paul to be voting against the National Emergency declaration,” Coulter said. “Look, I know this may sound principled to the libertarian types, but I’m sorry – it is an emergency just because no one else was willing to deal with it, no other president.”

Political analyst Kathleen McKinley told KTRH she agrees with that.

“It really is, and it’s been one for 25 years. All of us that have lived here have seen what illegal immigration does to the migrant,” McKinley said.

And she expects the mainstream media will play up this vote as a divide in the GOP.

“Let’s be honest. They are playing on their team. Anyone with truth in them would agree with that,” McKinley explained.

For instance, the mainstream media isn't talking much about the anti-Semitic comments made by freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
