Rand Paul Explains Intended Betrayal

Sen. Rand Paul has made known that he does not plan to support President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration. After standing behind Trump for so long, Paul now wants to explain his decision. 

The Bowling Green Daily News reported that during a Kentucky event Paul stated, “I can’t vote to give the president the power to spend money that hasn’t been appropriated by Congress.”

He would continued to note that, “We may want more money for border security, but Congress didn’t authorize it. If we take away those checks and balances, it’s a dangerous thing.”

In an op-ed to Fox News, Paul further justified that supporting Trump’s declaration when he opposed the executive orders of former President Obama would endanger his “political soul.”

“Every single Republican I know decried President Obama’s use of executive power to legislate. We were right then,” Paul wrote. “But the only way to be an honest officeholder is to stand up for the same principles no matter who is in power.”

    I can’t accept Rand Paul weak excuse for voting with the democrats against the President !!! Sorry but Congress gave the President the authority to Declare a National Emergency since 1976 Which has been used many times in the past. Now when His party President declares one he is with the democrats !!! Just no excuse for his betrayal. !!!

    Rand Paul and his father are both losers when it comes to immigration. How many years did they have to get a working immigration system in place.
    As a doctor you would think he would be mortified about the diseases these people bring with no way to process them! America was the shining star but is now becoming the country of cesspools.

    Rand you just don’t get it and why you’ve never progressed within Congress. It’s absolutely essential to put ‘people’ before ‘process’. That is what you were elected to do and clearly again fail to accomplish for your constituents. You say it is a national emergency and vote differently. Very disappointing.
