The Hill reports:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Wednesday that President Trump is “very inclined” to declare a national emergency to obtain the necessary funds to build a border wall. “It’s definitely on the table, I’ll let him tell you whether or not he’s going to do it, but he’s very inclined to go that route,” Graham, a staunch ally of Trump, told reporters on Capitol Hill.
Speculation has increased that Trump may back the current funding deal and then declare a national emergency to pull funds from the Pentagon to make up the difference for a border barrier. Fox News host Sean Hannity, a Trump confidant, floated such a move earlier this week.
Sen. Lindsey Graham says he spoke last night with Pres. Trump, who is “inclined to accept the agreement and move on and try to find money elsewhere” to fund his border wall.
