Huckabee Sanders: ‘We’re Hopeful the Democrats Will Not Hold American Military Hostage’

‘We want to see border security’

EXCERPT:

HUCKABEE SANDERS: "We have to keep these two items separate. The budget needs to be a separate item. We want a clean budget bill. We’re still hopeful that could happen. We hope that the Democrats will not hold American military hostage, will not hold the funding of our government hostage over a political battle that we should have, but we shouldn’t have it connected to the budget. We need to keep those two things separate. We’re so hopeful that we can get a budget deal done, a clean budget by the end of this week. We certainly hope that we can make a deal on DACA and on border security and our immigration system. This is something that needs to be done. Everyone agrees, both Democrats and Republicans, the House and the Senate and the President that we want to see something on DACA. We want to see border security. It seems like a no-brainer. Hopefully Democrats will come to the table and really be serious about making a deal on both of these things that we want to get done."
