“It seems to me that [Trump’s] gonna have to go it alone, but there could be a war within the Republican Party over the wall.

The South Carolina senator additionally opined that the GOP ought to support President Trump in his quest to secure funding for his promised physical barrier:

Where Does the Country Stand Now?

Many Americans across the country have different viewpoints about the border wall debate. Those on the right-wing are overwhelmingly supportive of the wall; like President Trump, his conservative backers view the physical barrier as a paramount security measure. The left-wing, on the other hand, is strongly opposed to the border wall. Those with more liberal leanings are likelier to side with Democratic leaders, such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
