Senator Cornyn: We Weren’t Elected To Shut Down Government


Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) on Tuesday seemed to take a veiled shot at President Trump’s call for a “good shutdown” of the government.

“Our voters, the people who elected Republican majorities in both Houses and elected this president, did not vote for us in order to shut down the government. They voted for us to govern, as hard as it is,” Cornyn said from the Senate floor.
Cornyn, the No. 2 Senate Republican, didn’t specifically address Trump’s tweet calling for “a good ‘shutdown’ in September.”
Asked specifically about Trump’s comments after his speech, the Texas Republican said there had been pro-shutdown comments “from a number of people, from a number of sources.” Read more at The Hill.
