Finally! A GOP with a backbone to show support for President Trump.
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey said he would support Trump’s border closure if necessary.
From Azcentral.com: Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey softened his stance on a possible U.S.-Mexico border closure after meeting with President Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying he would support Trump if he opted for a shutdown but hoped any closure would be “as short as possible.”
The Oval Office meeting came two days after Ducey had said he “of course” did not want to see the border close. He’d pointed to Mexico’s status as “our No. 1 trading partner, times four” and said he wanted “to see us continue to be able to trade,” confirming that the White House was aware of his position.
Ducey again called trade with Mexico “incredibly important” after his Wednesday discussion with Trump.
“But, border security comes first,” he told reporters in Washington, D.C.
The governor indicated the president had not made a final decision regarding a border closure, despite multiple threats to do so over the last week. On Twitter and in conversations with reporters, Trump had repeatedly said Mexico needed to help block the recent swell of migrant families at the border or face the consequences.
