Wow: Lindsey Graham Has Some Advice For Trump About Democrats and the Wall ^ | Jan 11, 2019 7:30 AM | Leah Barkoukis

Sen. Lindsey Graham is encouraging President Trump to move forward with declaring an emergency to build the wall, saying that “Democrats are not working in good faith with you.”


Lindsey Graham ‏Verified account @LindseyGrahamSC

Mr. President, the Democrats are not working in good faith with you.

Declare emergency, build the wall now. 4:00 PM - 10 Jan 2019


The tweet came hours after he admitted he didn’t know if that plan would work, but figured it would be worth trying given that he didn’t see a way forward in Congress.

“Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on Wall/Barrier funding – even if the government were to be reopened – virtually ends congressional path to fund Wall/Barrier," he said earlier Thursday. "Time for President @realDonaldTrump to use emergency powers to build Wall/Barrier. I hope it works."

Trump, Heading to the Border, Suggests He Will Declare an Emergency to Fund the Wall

President Trump left Washington on Thursday on a trip to McAllen, Texas, that he did not want to take to discuss a crisis on the border that Democrats say does not exist.

Their disagreement has led to a protracted shutdown affecting vast swaths of the federal government that have nothing to do with the construction of a wall between the United States and Mexico.

But as the government shutdown neared the end of its third week, the president left Washington with no additional negotiations scheduled with congressional leaders. In remarks to reporters on Thursday, Mr. Trump left open the possibility of declaring a state of emergency, which could allow him to bypass Congress to fund the wall.

Lindsey Graham is full of sh!t.

He's an open-borders puppet in the Senate, and he wants Trump to declare a "national emergency" so the government can be fully reopened without forcing him to cast a vote on the matter.

Well, since the democrats don’t want to make any deal then let’s just make it twice as bad for them. Just start building the wall and massively step up deportations too.

Democrats want to play with fire and couldn’t care less for American citizens safety? I say we give them all the fire they can handle. They’ll cave because they always overplay every hand they’re dealt.

Dear Senator Graham,

Point well taken, but neither will the Federal judge who puts a stay on the emergency EO indefinitely. At that point there are no options left.

Senator, you scored significant points with us patriots during the Kavanauth debacle by speaking the truth with clarity and conviction.

Don’t go wobbly on us now, to quote the great Margaret Thatcher.

As a side note to this thread, please consider the following about Democrats not working in good faith with PDJT or US citizens.

Why aren’t the politically correct global warming alarmist Democratic elite seeing that PDJT’s border wall will stop undocumented Democrats from bringing their carbon footprints into the country?

Also, consider that Mark Levin guest Heather MacDonald had put it this way about hypocrite Democrats and illegal aliens.

"But you know, what I find so extraordinary is the left in the morning has one narrative, which is that, there no place more oppressive on earth than the United States for people of color. It's just, if you are a person of color in the United States, you are the subject of constant oppression and then in afternoon, says we need every third world person of color to come here. Well, they cannot both be true [emphasis added].” — Heather MacDonald warns US colleges are breeding hate

“And the BEST PART is that IT'S YOUR $$$ NOT OURS. BWAHAHA!” (Comment by Schumer & Pelosi at presser!)

I heard Rush today explain that we perhaps would not even need a wall if all the financial incentives were gotten rid of that entice illegals here.

But this is a different world now, and if every single illegal were stopped from coming here due to financial gain, what would be left are terrorists that slip across the border in desolate areas with evil on their minds — gang members and Islamic terrorists.

No one knows how many Islamic terrorists have infiltrated here, but I would suggest is a huge number. MS-13 gang members are here by the thousands.

Not long after 9/11 bad folks brought a large number of manpads in to the US and set them aside in caches all over the country.
