President Trump joined Fox News’ Sean Hannity yesterday at the Texas-Mexico border where he reiterated his right to declare a national emergency at the border and slammed Democrats for playing politics with border wall funding.
“We have the absolute right to declare a national emergency,” he said. “This is security stuff. This is a national emergency if you look at whats happening…and you just heard the statement they came in last week or this week from Pakistan…[border patrol] got them.”
The President blasted Democrats for playing politics, telling Hannity that the border wall “would be virtually 100 percent effective and Nancy and Chuck know that but it’s politics. It’s about the 2020 campaign. It’s about running for president….it’s a shame. We’ve got to put the country first.
