    Default Lindsey Graham calls for Trump to use emergency powers to fund border wall

    Washington (CNN)South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham issued a statement Thursday calling for President Donald Trump to invoke national emergency powers to fund his border wall.

    "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."

    The statement from the key Trump ally came shortly after Graham said efforts to forge a deal with congressional Democrats had fallen flat.

    GOP senators gathered in Graham's office a day prior to discuss a deal that would bring an end to the ongoing government shutdown while securing money for Trump's proposed border with Mexico.

    I never really liked Lindsey Grahamnesty. But he has stepped up to the plate and upped his game! I am liking him more and more. I wish more politicians in the GOP would grow spines like this.

    Of course; once he bypasses the do-nothing Democrats, he can sign a bill into law funding the Government.

    Hmm, whatever did happen to that military parade? Oh that's right. He sent all the marchers down to the border to shoot tear gas at some moms and kids.
