US Republican Senator Lindsey Graham advised US President Donald to restore the work of the country's government, Fox News reported

"I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time, like three weeks, before he pulls the plug," Graham said adding "see if we can get a deal. If we can’t at the end of three weeks, all bets are off. See if he can do it by himself through the emergency powers. That’s my recommendation. But I think the legislative path is just about shut off because Nancy Pelosi, the leader of the House, said ‘Even if you open up the government, I’ll give you one dollar for the wall.’ As long as that’s the case, we’re never gonna get a legislative package, no matter what the Senate does."

Graham noted that restoring the work of the US government will suspend the declaring of the national emergency.
