McConnell Declares Tentative Support for Trump’s Border Wall
“I support what the president is trying to do on the wall,” Mitch McConnell told reporters Tuesday. “Most of my members do as well.”
“We’re going to continue to discuss it with him, and hope that this process can achieve what he would like to achieve on the wall,” McConnell continued, “and also get these appropriations bills signed into law, which is quite different than what’s happened in the past.”
Both McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan want to avoid the border wall issue as best as possible until after November’s midterm elections. Both of them met with President Donald Trump to that effect, and sources close to the matter claimed the president had been convinced to put off the debate until 2019.
