Thursday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt said Republican lawmakers are criticizing President Donald Trump’s intention to declared a national emergency to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Hunt said, “Don’t forget this is DHS, it’s also other appropriations bills, there is a lot of congressional old school buy in here. There is a lot of work from the appropriation committee that are used to working across the aisle. I think that is what assures — and you saw this on the Senate vote, too, 80 plus votes for cloture and final passage. I think you will see something similar in the House.”
