On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL) stated he doesn’t know what the White House’s position on border security or funding the government is.
Brooks said, “What the president has done, quite frankly, is pretty consistent with what a number of presidents have done over a period of time, or for that matter, also the House and the Senate. It’s difficult to be 100% consistent when you have different circumstances that face you on a regular basis and you have to change your stance quite frequently in order to adjust to those different circumstances that face you. Certainly, it’d be easier if the House was more consistent, the Senate was more consistent, and the White House was more consistent.”
He added, “I’m going to confess that I don’t know what the White House’s position is on border security, or with respect to this continuing resolution to fund the government, or with respect to an omnibus to fund the government for the rest of this fiscal year.”
Brooks further stated, “[N]obody can know. Because you don’t have the kind of consistency that you would like emanating from the White House on this particular set of issues.”
Brooks later added that he thinks the president will sign the CR that passed the House, but doesn’t know what his position would be if the Senate amends the bill.
