Senator John Cornyn Standing Firm Behind President Trump On Shutdown [INTERVIEW]
On Tuesday's edition of The Chad Hasty Show, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) joined Chad to talk about the continuing partial government shutdown and what to expect in the near future.
Cornyn and Hasty discussed the ongoing standoff between President Trump and the Democratic leadership of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and where the situation stands.
When asked by Hasty what indications Cornyn sees, that the situation will be resolved soon and normal operations resuming in the federal government, Cornyn said,
Next to none Chad. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer I think, are being held back so to speak, by their political constituency that's become more radical than ever after this mid-term election, and they don't want to do anything that will be perceived as giving President Trump a win on anything, even though what he's advocating for is border security funds, which we desperately need. And so this is really, to my mind, a contrived shutdown. This is not a product of good faith negotiation because, if we got all the principals in the room, and they actually were sincere about their desire to negotiate a compromise, they could do it in thirty minutes.
Cornyn and Hasty also discussed the possible use of emergency powers and disaster relief, the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, what it is, and why it is needed, as well as the multiple ongoing investigations being involving the president.
