Trump appeared on Face the Nation and set the record straight when it comes to Nancy Pelosi.
They talked about the border wall and Trump emphasized it’s importance as well as how Pelosi’s inaction or refusal to do her job was actually hurting the country.
Host Margaret Brennan at one point tried to correct Trump, showing her political leanings, but Trump did not skip a beat and corrected her MSM misinformation.
“You had quite the showdown with Speaker Pelosi. What did you learn about negotiating with her?” Brennan asked.
“Well, I think that she was very rigid — which I would expect — but I think she’s very bad for our country. She knows that you need a barrier. She knows that we need border security. She wanted to win a political point. I happen to think it’s very bad politics because basically, she wants open borders. She doesn’t mind human trafficking or she wouldn’t do this-” Trump said.
“She offered over a billion dollars for border security. She doesn’t want the wall,” Brennan interrupted.
“She’s costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars because what’s happening is, when you have a porous border and when you have drugs pouring in, and when you have people dying all over the country because of people like Nancy Pelosi who don’t want to give proper border security for political reasons — she’s doing a terrible disservice to our country,” the president said correcting Brennan.

Brennan claims that the Democrats offered a billion dollars for border security. But it seems like they only did so to save face. The Democrats are only interested in a bandaid. Trump is looking for solutions.
A wall would do a great deal in slowing migrants. It would give Border Patrol the time it needs to come and apprehend these invaders. This, in turn, would force more migrants to follow the laws of our land and come to our country legally. It would also deter criminals and keep Americans by the border safer. Where is the downside here?
