    Graham Calls On Trump "To Use Emergency Powers" To Build Wall "I hope it works"

    Graham Calls On Trump "To Use Emergency Powers" To Build Wall



    "I hope it works"

    Sen. Lindsey Graham on Thursday called on President Trump to declare a national emergency in order to fund the construction of the US-Mexico border wall, after the latest round of negotiations in the Senate fell apart.



    "Speaker 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," said Graham in a statement.


    "It's time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier."
    "I hope it works"


    The statement follows failed negotiations led by Graham involving moderate GOP senators, some of whom blamed both President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for being unwilling to compromise with each other.
    Earlier Thursday we reported that the White House is preparing legal justification to declare a national emergency, according to CNN Chief National Security Correspondent, Jim Sciutto.

    Trump, meanwhile, told reporters that he'll "probably" declare a national emergency if the partial government shutdown drags on.

    If Trump moves forward with that option, Graham told reporters that Congress could try to block it using a privileged motion.
    "If he goes down that route, apparently under the statute the House can take up a privileged motion [and] disapprove the declaration," said Graham. "It comes over here, Senate Democrats can insist we vote on it. And if you get a majority to disapprove it doesn’t go forward."
    At which point Trump can throw his hands up and tell his base that he did everything he could.

    They've got this all planned out. They are now so brave, they even tell us just exactly how they will be rolling out their show.
    No need to read the book, don't even have to flip to the last page, Lindsey spilled it.

    That statute was thrown out by the US Supreme Court in 1983. He's free and good to go. What you don't know can be as harmful as what you do, Lindsay. Get up to speed!! You're the new Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Watch Fox News, you'll learn a lot, not that stupid Judge Nap, all the other lawyers.

    Well, Graham thinks he has it all planned out anyway.


    He must really be pissed at Trump and Pelosi because they stepped on his parade. He thought his plan to offer amnesty to TPS and DACA would rule the day. LOL

    Trump shut all that down yesterday when he got wind of it. No amnesty, no DACA, no nada. Lindsay was actually "depressed" after Trump told him, no go on that crap, which is why Lindsay then got on board and strongly recommended the national emergency option and said do it now.

    Trump IS the man!

    I imagine Stephen Miller advised Trump that his base would go ballistic if he supported a DACA and TPS amnesty for a measly $5 billion.

    Grahamnesty lost the election, now he will do "backroom" deals to get a feather in his cap any way he can. He is like the petulant child and will throw us under the bus to get his way. He IS the swamp...they all are.

    Who is Granamnesty on the take with? Who are his donors and lobbyists?

    He talks out of both sides of his mouth like the 2 headed snake he is. Suck up to Trump, go golf, have lunch...then try and pull the wool over his eyes!

    His buddy McCain is no longer there to carry the Traitor Torch...so Grahamnesty marches on.

    TERM LIMITS!!! NO LIFETIME PENSION AND NO HEALTHCARE. PUT THEM ON SOCIAL SECURITY AND OBAMACARE!

    NO SELL OUTS!

    NO DACA, NO AMNESTY, NO PATH TO STAY, NO TPS!

    BOOT THEM OUT AND STOP REWARDING THEM!
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL
