Senator James Lankford (R-OK) was one of the key negotiators for the bipartisan border bill that failed to secure passage in the U.S. House (largely because the majority of Republicans felt the bill didn’t do nearly enough to secure the border).

On Sunday, Lankford joined CNN host Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” to discuss the need for solutions regarding the border — and why he doesn’t hesitate to support former President Donald Trump in his bid to unseat President Joe Biden in November. 

Here was their exchange on the issue: 

Lankford makes a compelling case here. Setting aside the border bill itself, President Biden has the authority and ability to remedy the situation — at least mitigate it — but in his quest to be as Not Trump as he possibly can, he won’t even take a page from his former boss’s book. Maybe he considers that a plus — doing it his way. Most of us don’t.
