Biased AP contradicts itself to Bash Trump

Trump’s rejection of Lee’s proposal left many Republicans boxed in: defy Trump and the conservative voters who back him passionately, or assent to what many lawmakers from both parties consider a dubious and dangerous expansion of presidential authority.
...
Thursday’s vote would be the first time Congress has rejected a presidential emergency under the 1976 National Emergency Act. While presidents have declared 58 emergencies under the statute, this is the first aimed at acquiring money for an item Congress has explicitly refused to finance, according to Elizabeth Goitein, co-director for national security at New York University Law School’s Brennan Center for Justice.

I seem to remember Trump winning a national election with "Build the Wall" one of his major and most reported promises. I also seem to remember the Republican Party Platform as well as the vast majority of candidates pushing the Wall for over 20 years now. I even remember most Democrats pushing it.

No mention that Congress gave the President this unilateral power and can only stop him by withdrawing that authority.

The real scandal is that declaring a National Emergency to defend AMERICAN Borders is the first of 58 to be opposed by Corporatist Congress.
