During an interview with Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) on Wednesday afternoon, Fox News host Neil Cavuto suggested that the declaration of a national emergency over border wall funding was the wrong path and “both parties” should “stop that nonsense” and “grow up.”
“What’s to stop a Democratic president from making the same argument for a separate issue and holding the government hostage to that?” Cavuto said, discussing Burgess’s interest in Trump declaring a national emergency in order to secure his wall funding.
Burgess argued that it wouldn’t stop anyone, as “that did in fact happen” during the the former Clinton and Obama administrations, he claimed.
“Maybe this is a signal we should stop that nonsense and both parties should grow up,” Cavuto shot back.
