Bob Corker on shutdown Trump trying to look like hes fighting CNNPolitics “This is a made up fight, so the President can look like hes fighting, but even if he wins, our borders are going to be insecure,” Corker said on CNNs “State of the Union.” Corkers comments came as the partial government shutdown went into its second day, following Congress and Trump failing to come to a funding agreement on Friday. The Senate without an agreement, meaning the shutdown would likely continue past Christmas. Corker, a retiring senator and frequent Trump critic, said the dispute over border security and Trumps proposed border wall was “a purposefully contrived fight” and argued the fight was small in scope compared to a ahead of a January government shutdown that would have combined greater money at the border along with protection for “Dreamers.” “We can secure our borders,” Corker said. “We can solve this problem. This is a made up fight.” Asked if he meant Trump was using this as a campaign issue rather than seeking a deal, Corker said, “it has to be that.” “Its a spectacle, and candidly, its juvenile,” Corker said. “The whole thing is juvenile.”
