‘The Supreme Court disagrees’: Trump gets wrecked for saying border wall’s ‘constitutionality’ doesn’t matter

President Donald Trump suggested Monday that the U.S. Constitution mattered less than funding his proposed border wall -- and he was quickly met with outrage and derision.


The president cautioned Republican senators to vote against a resolution that would terminate the national emergency declaration he issued last month to fund the wall, after Congress refused to do it.

"Republican Senators have a very easy vote this week," Trump tweeted. "It is about Border Security and the Wall (stopping Crime, Drugs etc.), not Constitutionality and Precedent. It is an 80% positive issue. The Dems are 100% United, as usual, on a 20% issue, Open Borders and Crime. Get tough R’s!"

Legal experts and other Twitter users, however, said Trump was dead wrong.
