Graham Says Trump Open to Wall Trade-Offs

Sunday, 30 December 2018 04:35 PM

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says President Donald Trump is open-minded about combining wall funding with other things to end a partial government shutdown.

Graham met with the president at the White House on Sunday. Graham says Republicans are going to put on the negotiating table ideas that Democrats have embraced in the past.

Graham is specifically calling for helping young "Dreamer" immigrants remain in the U.S. as well as another 400,000 people from countries struggling with natural disasters or armed conflicts.

Graham says Trump is receptive to making a deal if it achieves his goal of securing the border.

He says the question for lawmakers is "can we stop hating each other enough up here to find a way forward that would be a win-win."
