President Donald Trump said that he will further strengthen US borders, particularly his southern wall proposal, after the Christmas market terror attack in France where two people were killed and one was left brain-dead.
“Another very bad terror attack in France. We are going to strengthen our borders even more,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday.
Yesterday, the president had a heated discussion with Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi over funding for the border wall.
During the meeting Trump threatened to shut down the government unless Congress approved funding for his proposed border wall.
“Chuck and Nancy must give us the votes to get additional Border Security!,” the president tweeted.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News Wednesday morning, “we have to have the capacity to control entry into our country everywhere through our airports and ports, but most importantly today at the southern border, and a wall is a vital component of that, and we ought to build it out.” When confronted that Pelosi and experts say that the US doesnآ’t need a border wall, Pompeo responded, “we should build it out. We should do all the things we need to do to control the flow of people into our country in a way that is lawful only.” (end) ak.sd
