During an appearance this morning on Fox and Friends, Attorney General Josh Hawley praised President Donald Trump and backed his call for stronger border security.
"We've got to build the wall," Hawley told host Brian Kilmeade. He added that his opponent in the U. S. Senate race, incumbent Claire McCaskill, does not support the border wall.
"That's another reason she has to go."
Much of the interview was about McCaskill's meeting with Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Tuesday. Hawley expressed his full support for Kavanaugh. "This is not a hard decision. Claire McCaskill ought to quit hiding and say she will support him and stand up to her party and challenge them to support him, also."
Hawley accused of McCaskill of being a puppet for the Senate minority leader.
""Claire McCaskill does what Chuck Schumer gives her permission to do," Hawley said adding, "She had to get permission to even sit down with Kavanaugh."
