MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Thursday took aim at GOP members of Congress, calling them “weak” for allowing Trump to divert funding meant for their states to build the wall at the southern border.
Scarborough said Trump “stole money” from their states and the lawmakers were “too weak” to stop him.
“There are several Republican senators facing reelection next year who voted in support of Trump’s emergency declaration and now their states will lose money to build the wall,” co-host Mika Brzezinski stated.
“To steal $80 million for a wall that he said Mexico was going to pay for that Republicans wouldn’t even fund — they had control of the House and the Senate for two years and John Cornyn said it wasn’t worth it, Lindsey Graham said it wasn’t worth it, so he stole money from their states and they couldn’t stop him,” Scarborough outlined. “They were too weak to stop him.”
He went on to exclaim, “He just stole $80 million from your state. How weak are you? Unbelievable!”
