During a portion of an interview set to air on Sunday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) said he’s not sure how he’ll vote on a resolution disapproving of President Trump’s national emergency declaration.
Johnson said, “I’m going to take a look at the case the president makes, and I’m also going to take a look at how quickly this money is actually going to be spent versus what he’s going to use. If he’s not going to be spending it this fiscal year, or very early in the next fiscal year, I would have my doubts. So again, I’m going to take a look at it, and I’ll — you know, I’ll decide when I actually have to vote on it.”
Johnson added that he “Absolutely” has concerns that the emergency declaration could create a precedent that allows future presidents to take similar actions on climate change or gun control.
