Border Security

President Trump Gives Stunning Address On America’s ‘Crisis of the Soul’



President Donald Trump delivered a beautiful, somber monologue from the Oval Office Tuesday night to address the border crisis: “A crisis of the heart, a crisis of the Soul.”

Trump spoke to the American people with seriousness, with respect, with empathy. He spoke of the women and children who are brutal victims of the illegal immigration scourge. He did not speak in platitudes, as his predecessors did, as though Americans are beneath him. He addressed us intellectually. He appealed to our minds.

“This is the cycle of human suffering that I am determined to end.”

The speech was thorough and comprehensive on the facts: the need for $5.7 billion in funding, the human and financial cost of the drug epidemic. But he did something even more powerful, even more resonant. He appealed to us as fellow men. And he made Washington seem very, very small.

“Why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences, and gates around their homes? They don’t build walls because they hate people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside,” President Trump said.

“This is just common sense,” President Trump said of the Wall.

“The federal government remains shut down for one reason and one reason only: because Democrats will not fund border security.”

“The only solution is for Democrats to pass a spending bill…This situation could be solved with a 45-minute meeting,” Trump said, noting that he has invited Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer back to the White House Wednesday.

“This is a choice between Right and Wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to our citizens who we serve,” Trump said.

For several years now, President Donald Trump has used jokes, has used attacks, has used trick plays, has used raucous declarations to cheering crowds, to make his point that Washington is corrupt and broken, and must be fixed. These methods have been effective, hilarious, even brilliant.

But tonight he did something so much more profound: He made us understand.
