Earlier in the day Graham tweeted that Trump “strongly believes he has power to declare a national emergency to build a wall.”

Leading up to his message to The President, Graham said that recent statements made by Speaker Pelosi and the “inability to use regular order in the Senate,” he see’s no alternative.

Citing “Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on Wall/Barrier funding – even if the government were to be reopened” Graham said that it, “virtually ends congressional path to fund Wall/Barrier,” and that it was  time for President Trump to use emergency powers to build Wall/Barrier.”

He then tweeted FULL SUPPORT for the measure saying: “Declare emergency, build the wall now.”

A native of Central, South Carolina, Graham graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1977. He received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1981. He served in the United States Air Force from 1982 to 1988 and served in the South Carolina Air National Guard then in the Air Force Reserve, attaining the rank of colonel. He worked as a lawyer in private practice before he was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives in 1992, serving one term from 1993 to 1995. He then served in the United States House of Representatives, representing South Carolina’s 3rd congressional district from 1995 to 2003. He was elected to four terms, receiving at least 60% of the vote each time.

In 2002, Graham ran for the U.S. Senate after eight-term Republican incumbent Strom Thurmond announced his retirement. Graham won the primary unopposed and defeated Democratic opponent Alex Sanders in the general election. Graham was re-elected to a second term in 2008, defeating Bob Conley. He won a third term in 2014, defeating Democrat Brad Hutto and Independent Thomas Ravenel.

He is also a critic of the Tea Party movement, arguing for a more inclusive Republican Party.
