President Trump says he hopes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can come along and realize walls work, ahead of his announcement on the situation at the southern border.
The president made the comment before his trip to Dover Air Force Base on Saturday and also said there are too many open areas on the border and stressed everybody knows walls work.
He also expressed disappointment in Mexico for not stopping the approaching caravan, and suggested the country is powerless to stop it.
The president also claimed Pelosi is controlled by the ‘radical left’ regarding the issue.
“She’s controlled by radical left. Bad thing for her, bad thing for Dems. Everybody knows walls work,” said President Trump. “Look at Sam Antonio, so many places, go from one of most unsafe cities in country to one of safest in country. Works, will put it up.
Reports said during the address, the president will propose extending DACA protections and legislation on extending temporary protected status for immigrants in exchange for wall funding.
