Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) discussed the ongoing partial government shutdown over border wall funding.
Harris blasted President Donald Trump, accusing him of “holding the American people hostage over his vanity project.”
“The president is holding the American people hostage over his vanity project. That’s what’s happening,” Harris said. “This is a crisis of his own making. I find it outrageous, and it would be fascinating if it weren’t potentially so destructive to sit back and think that he’s talking about issuing an emergency order over a crisis of his own making.”
According to Harris, Trump is using “political manipulation” in the fight over the border wall.
