On Saturday, MSNBC’s Joy Reid identified the Republican senators who have sat by and allowed President Donald Trump to divert funds from the military for use in his border wall — often at the cost of projects approved for their own states.

Lindsey Graham, his best friend from South Carolina. Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi. James Inhofe of Oklahoma. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. Martha McSally of Arizona. Dan Sullivan of [Alaska]. And Thom Tillis of North Carolina. All up for re-election this year, and they’re losing their money to the precious.”
