GOP Sen. Kennedy: I Don’t Want a Shutdown, But I Don’t Think Trump’s Bluffing

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) stated that he doesn’t want a government shutdown, but he doesn’t believe President Trump’s threat to have a shutdown over border security is a bluff.

Kennedy said, “I don’t want to see government shut down. I think we ought to surprise ourselves and try to do something intelligent and try to work it out. Having said that, I don’t think the president’s bluffing, as I said earlier today, if I were playing poker right now with the president, and I saw his facial expressions and his attitude across the table and I didn’t have the cards, I’d fold them. Because I don’t think he’s bluffing.”
