Jon Tester vs. the Wall
By Les Still

This week, Montana senator Jon Tester wrote an op-ed for the Billings Gazette.  Tester has never agreed with Trump regarding the need for a wall on the border and he did not disappoint his like-minded followers this time either.

One of the things he stressed was his disapproval of Trump declaring a national emergency and “taking money from our military -- to spend billions on a border wall that Republicans and Democrats alike rejected.”

Twelve Republicans voted against Trump’s Emergency Declaration.  However, their vote against it was seemingly not for the same reasons Tester did. They feared Trump’s Emergency Declaration would be setting a precedent that could be used by future Presidents.
