Sen. Lindsey Graham weighed-in Friday on the recent bipartisan agreement to re-open the federal government for three weeks; saying the President should declare a national emergency should Democrats fail to live-up to their end of the bargain.
“Come February the 15th, if the Democrats still say: ‘Go to hell on the wall, you get a dollar, that’s it.’ They basically tell Trump, ‘I’m not going to do with you what I did with Bush and Obama,’ then I hope he will go the emergency route,” said Graham following the president’s address.
“We don’t need to shut the government down, we need to secure the border,” Graham said. “And to me, the last best chance to do this win-win is between now and Feb. 15.”
The President presented Congressional leaders with three options Friday: Reach a “fair deal” by February 15th, face another government shutdown, or prompt Trump to declare a “national emergency” along the southern border.

Cortez’ found herself in hot-water this week after she made the stunning comparison; saying “Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.”
GRAHAM SLAM: Sen. Graham BLASTS ‘Absurd, Petty, and Shameful’ Nancy Pelosi
Senator Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on the five-week long government shutdown; saying the President made a “brilliant political move” by moving towards the center on border security.
“How can anybody look in the eye of a parent who lost a kid to a heroin overdose, and say: ‘This is manufactured?’ Or look in the face of an angel mom or dad?” asked Hannity.
“What you don’t have is clips of Democratic Senators saying this because they know it’s a death blow to the party. President Trump made a brilliant political move, and good for the country, to go to the middle,” said Graham.
“The harder Nancy Pelosi goes left, and the more Trump goes to the middle, we’re going to get this thing solved,” he added.
