State Senator Chris McDaniel held a press conference Thursday to discuss the funding and building of a border wall along the United States’ southern border.

“I stand with President Trump,” said McDaniel. “It’s time to build a wall on the Southern border.”

McDaniel stated that last week, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he would not be supporting the funding before the midterm– a move McDaniel said is ridiculous.

The U.S. Senate candidate also claimed that his opponent has been quiet about the border wall.

“Cindy Hyde-Smith has been dead silent on this issue,” said McDaniel. “I’m calling on her today to stand on behalf of Mississippians; to push back against Mitch McConnell, to push back against the Chamber of Commerce, and to call for the immediate funding of a wall on the southern border.”
