President Trump: ‘Walls Work…They Work Better Than Anything’
President Donald Trump stood firm on the Wall in his remarks Thursday before signing the Farm Bill, demanding that Congress fund his Wall — which they don’t even need to necessarily call a Wall, they can call it “Steel Slats” so long as it gets done.
“Any measure that funds the government must include border security. It has to. Not for political purposes but for our Country,” said President Trump, indicating that he is prepared to shut down the federal government by Friday’s deadline for passing a weakly “stopgap” spending bill with no Wall funding.
“A country without borders is a country not at all,” President Trump said. “I will not surrender this nation to criminal organizations…human trafficking and mass drug inflow must also be stopped.”
“It is our sacred obligation. We have no choice. For decades Washington abandoned this commitment…It was a total assault on our democracy itself.”
“More than 90 percent of heroin comes across our southern border,” President Trump said.
