LINDSEY GRAHAM: ‘It is Time for President Trump to Use Emergency Powers’ and Build the Wall

Originally published at:

Sen. Lindsey Graham released a scathing statement Thursday night; slamming congressional Democrats and saying it’s “time for President Trump to use emergency powers” and construct his border wall.

The South Carolina Senator issued the stark statement Thursday after the President toured the US-Mexico border in Texas; citing Speaker Pelosi’s “refusal to negotiate” on any future wall or barrier construction.

“Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier — even if the government were to be reopened — virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier,” Graham said in a statement. “It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier.”

President Trump has repeatedly mentioned the concept of using emergency powers to bypass Congress; telling reporters this week he “may go that route” should a bipartisan agreement fail to reach his desk.

The sweet southern Belle, Lindsey, has sold his soul to the devil. You can bet John McCain is tossing in his grave.

I wonder what the Russians have on Lindsey?

Interesting, how after two years of failing to get the wall through the Republican led Congress, and not viewing the situation as a national emergency, it’s all Nancy Pelosi’s fault.

No, it isn’t. Nancy Pelosi, for all the right demonizes her, is a very savvy politician. She knows that the majority of the public do not want the wall, the majority do not trust the President and the pressure of the shutdown is falling much more strongly on Republicans than on Democrats. If the pressure and opinion were reversed she would be acting very differently.

The fault here lies with Donald Trump’s failure to convince the American public at large that the wall will be an effective solution, his failure to obtain the Mexican funding he promised repeatedly, his inability to define what the wall is (concrete/steel/transparent/wall/barrier) and his failure to convince the American people that the pain of the shutdown he caused is worth enduring.

Trump handed this one to Pelosi and Schumer on a platter. Any poker player knows what to do when you have a full house.

What a gift to democrats. Lindsey if you go down that route it will only get worse.

Lol if Paul Ryan and the GOP House majority didn’t have the votes for Trump’s Atrocity, why in the world Nancy have the votes for the Atrocity?
Graham is a moron.
