In his home state of South Carolina, Senator Lindsey Graham had a dire warning for the future of U.S. politicians.
Speaking with reporters at the First Monday GOP club in Greenville, Graham expressed his concerns about Trump’s wall. He lamented that Trump may be forced to declare a national emergency, and that it may trigger “a war within the Republican Party.”
With some Republicans turning on Trump and even more still on the fence, Graham had strong words to encourage them to amend their actions.
“To every Republican: If you don’t stand behind this president, we’re not going to stand behind you when it comes to the wall,” Graham threatened. “This is the defining moment of his presidency. It’s not just about a wall. It’s about him being treated differently than every other president.”
While Trump has floated the idea of declaring a national emergency, that is only if Democrats continue to be completely unwilling to offer a reasonable deal for a border wall that will protect America’s borders.
