During Sunday’s interview, President Trump continued his fight for border security and blasted Nancy Pelosi for her resistance.
Margaret asked, “You had quite the showdown with Speaker Pelosi. What did you learn about negotiating with her?”
President Trump responded, “Well, I think that she was very rigid, which I would expect, but I think she’s very bad for our country.”
The President explained that Pelosi knows that the southern border needs a barrier adding that Pelosi knows that “we need border security.” (Video Below)
“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.” President Trump said.
Margaret interrupted and said, “She offered you over a billion dollars for border security… she doesn’t want the wall.”
Trump responded, “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.
