LINDSEY GRAHAM: PELOSI’S TACTICS ABOUT TO BACKFIRE ON DEMOCRATS
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is not one to pull any punches. He said Wednesday on Fox News’ “Hannity” that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has become a “nightmare” for the Democratic Party because she has decided to move so far to the left.
The South Carolina senator said that Pelosi’s “dislike” for President Trump is “hurting the country.”
Graham also said that in the Senate, moderate Democratic senators have been eager to discuss the issues with him in the days since the Pelosi-Trump feud intensified.
“There’s a reaction to this far-left rhetoric in the Senate by more mainstream Democrats,” he said. “There’s a deal in the making.”
Sen. Graham maintains that as President Trump moderates politically by offering to extend temporary protected status for those in the DACA program known as “Dreamers,” it is serving to increase the chance for the partial government shutdown to end.
“The harder Nancy Pelosi goes left and the more Trump goes to the middle, [the better chance] we’re going to get this thing solved,” he said.
You can watch Senator Graham in his appearance of the popular Fox News show below. We look forward to seeing what you think about his assessment of what is happening in Washington DC.
Do you agree that Pelosi is hurting her own party by her movement left? Do you trust the those who are more moderate in the Democratic Party will be able to negotiate a viable compromise that will end the government shutdown?
Will Trump actually get his southern border wall?
