During an interview on Fox News, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) spoke out against Democrats who do not want to compromise on border security.
“If the Democrats are going to use their majority in the House of Representatives to block the funds that are necessary to secure the American people, then they won’t have their majority for very long,” Cheney said.
“I think that you’re going to find that there’s increasing pressure on — particularly some of the freshman Democrats who were just elected who represent districts that Republicans previously held, where those constituents want the country secure, they want the border secure,” Cheney said.

However, she is confident that President Donald Trump will do what he believes is necessary.
“If he has to declare a national emergency, that’s what he’ll do,” said Cheney.
Cheney warned Democrats should compromise in order to avoid risking losing the majority.
“We’re in a situation where the president said, ‘We have got to get this money to secure the border, we’ve gotta get this money for a wall,’ and the Democrats refuse continuously to come to the table to negotiate,” she said. “So now he’s calling their bluff, and we’re all very hopeful that they will now do what’s right for the country.”
