Sen. Lindsey Graham said Thursday he has given up his attempt to negotiate an end the partial government shutdown and said he has “never been more depressed” after trying to find an answer.

Graham had been pushing the White House, Senate Republicans, and Senate Democrats to find a legislative agreement on border security so President Trump wouldn’t have to declare a national emergency to access money to build a border wall. But Graham’s effort came crashing down Thursday as momentum halted.

“I just don’t see a pathway,” Graham told reporters. “I’m done. I don’t know who to talk to, and I don’t know what else to do.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“I have never been more depressed about moving forward than right now. I just don’t see a pathway forward. Somebody’s got to like get some energy to fix this,” Graham said. “I’ve run out of ideas.”

Graham posted a statement on Twitter Thursday evening, calling for President Trump to go ahead and declare a national emergency, and build the wall.  He wrote, “Mr. President, the Democrats are not working in good faith with you. Declare emergency, build the wall now.”

Graham pounced on CNN’s Jim Acosta Thursday, over his video reporting of the border wall in McAllen, Texas.
