In a video posted to Twitter, Trump says “The Democrats are absolute hypocrites. All along they’ve been supporting walls and supporting fences and supporting all sorts of border security.”
The video then cuts to clips of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama all sounding like Republicans when it comes to border security and immigration.
“Illegal immigration is wrong. Plain and simple,” says Schumer in the video.
Hillary Clinton brags about how she voted for the border wall. “I voted numerous times when I was a senator to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in,” she says.
“We simiply cannot allow people to pour into the united states undetected, undocumented, unchecked,” says Obama.
Trump says Democrats no longer support the wall and border security because they’d rather oppose him.
“The fact is they’ve always supported fences and walls and partitions, but you know what? They only don’t want to do it because of me.”
