Warner: Trump’s Speech, ‘Political’ Border Visit Show ‘He’s Not Anxious’ to Resolve Shutdown


On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) stated that President Trump’s planned primetime address and “political visit” to the border show “that he’s not anxious to have this dispute be resolved.”

Warner said, “Well, my reaction, first of all, in terms of a speech tomorrow night and a political visit to the border on the following day, means that he’s not anxious to have this dispute be resolved. I mean, I was a governor. I had difficulties with my legislature. I’m a Democrat, had a 2-1 Republican legislature. When we had disputes, I put everybody in a room and we kind of locked the door and we wouldn’t let anybody leave until we got to an agreement. That’s not this president’s approach.”
