Sen. Lindsey Graham on Saturday expressed support for President Donald Trump’s decision to declare a national emergency, saying Trump’s admission that he “didn’t need to” invoke his emergency powers did not weaken the White House’s claim that there is a crisis at the southern border.
“I really don’t think so,” Graham (R-S.C.) told host Margaret Brennan in an interview set to air Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“I think the president’s been making a persuasive case that the border is broken, you know,” he said. “Drugs are flowing across the border killing Americans, human trafficking. We’ve got a dangerous situation along the border.”
