One Last Hurrah: Jeff Flake Says He Will Not Support Nuclear Option to Fund the Border Wall

Flake’s Last Hurrah—

President Trump urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to use the nuclear option on border wall funding.

On Thursday night Ed Henry from FOX News announced the Republican Senate will only need 51 votes to pass the spending bill and fund the Trump border wall.

Freedom Caucus Chairman and Founder Rep. Mark Meadows also urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to use the nuclear option and pass the spending bill.

But already outgoing Senator Jeff Flake already announced he will shut it all down.

Flake tweeted to President Trump on Friday he WILL NOT support the plan to pass funding for the border wall.
