So is Trump going to order primary challenges to the Republican defectors in the Senate?

He told them yesterday that he wouldn't take it personally if they rejected it. He said he understood it was a Constitutional powers issue. That was yesterday. Today and tomorrow when Rush and Ann and Hannity criticize him, he'll lash out at the GOPers who rejected it.

I wasn’t stunned—according to news reports prior to the vote, it was expected

Poor-poor Donnie. He'll need to down five cheeseburgers to console himself.

59 against, 41 voted for

So, can arms be twisted to bet the vote over-ridden?

Is there one more 'Pub who is beginning to see that Trump is a lame duck?

Pubs don’t walk in lock step / dems do as they’re told by their leaders. Do I wish pubs would stand together? Yes, but alas it is what it is and I won’t lose sleep over it.

Lol about the stunning part. Was there any person (including Trump) or network who didn't know how the Senate vote would go? But it will be somewhat interesting to see what's next. While we know Trump will now veto, what will Nancy do? I was watching MSNBC today and they were discussing her predicament. She knows she can't get the needed numbers to override the veto. She also knows she has some new Dems (from red states) who might look bad for not supporting border security. So, the panel on MSNBC was wondering if it would even be sensible for her to hold a veto override vote. Castro was interviewed and wants her to hold the vote. Will she or won't she is the next interesting question in this story:)

Didn't Congress do similarly with his last budget?

As Beto said today, this is not a job for one man alone. If Trump wants to go that way he will have to step up to full-on dictator mode.
