LIVE STREAM: President Trump to deliver remarks in Oval Office

"I didn't need the vote because we all knew it would be a veto and they're not going to be able to override".

Mr Trump expressed pride in the Republicans who did not vote to support the resolution and said later that he had sympathy for those who defied him, adding they did what they had to do.

He then distributed pens as mementos of the occasion.

"The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border", wrote Boyd in a disclaimer issued to the press shortly after Trump played his trump card.

The emergency declaration is being challenged in court as an unconstitutional usurpation of Congress' power of the purse.

Those cases could block Trump from diverting extra money to barrier construction for months or longer.

"The only one Congress vetoed was the one to protect our own land".

"We're bursting at the seams, we can only hold so much", he said.

The White House had lobbied heavily for Republicans to back Mr Trump, despite concerns among some about executive overreach and precedent-setting action that a future Democratic president could copy on policies that Republicans oppose. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters.

"The Senate's waking up a little bit to our responsibilities", said Sen.

"I think the basic premise of Mike [Lee's] bill is correct", Republican Senator Jerry Moran said Thursday.

On Friday, Barr also said the president's emergency order was "clearly authorized under the law".

In challenging Trump on Thursday, only one Republican who is up for re-election next year - Susan Collins of ME - voted for the disapproval resolution. "That shift has placed a substantial strain on border-security resources".

"I'd like to thank all of the Great Republican Senators who bravely voted for Strong Border Security and the WALL".

"Look, they were doing what they have to do", Trump said, insisting he "put no pressure" on lawmakers to vote against the resolution because he realized that the measure was likely to pass.

Trump tweeted about the political advantage he expects those who supported him will receive.

Speaking in the Oval Office, Trump painted his usual portrait of a lawless and violent border. He noted, correctly, a spike in the number of people coming to the border to claim asylum.

Congress declined and the result was the longest shutdown in us history.

The declaration of an emergency allowed the administration to access over $6bn in additional funds not appropriated by Congress to build the wall.

The president made a border wall a central promise of his 2016 campaign for the White House.
