South Carolina GOP Senator, Tim Scott blasts Nancy Pelosi and Democrats over the partial government shutdown.
During an interview on Monday, Scott said Democrats like Pelosi are blocking border wall funding, because her House speakership is at-risk and they dislike President Trump.
He pointed out Democrats had no problem approving 25 billion dollars for the Obama Administration, saying they now only support proposals for 1.3 billion dollars under President Trump.
Pelosi has indicated there likely will be no agreement before January.
Scott added, if things are going to move forward, lawmakers must make the safety of Americans a top priority.
