Listen: President, Congress And Secretary discussed on Overnight re-air of day's programming
"Time again, I support open borders, I support sanctuary cities. So let's spread out some of that burden and let's put it in some of those other locations, if that's what they want to see happen at are refusing to actually help fix the problem. But as you know, when the story broke on Thursday, White house officials said flatly that the idea had been rejected. We know the President Trump called the former homeland security secretary Kirsten Nielsen and she told him that her legal team reviewed it simply not legal. So how can you continue to push this? Look, we have that was brought up at a staff level, and it was determined at that time that logistically there were a lot of challenges, and it probably didn't make sense to move forward in the idea did not go further. He likes it. So we're looking to see if there are options that make it possible and doing a full and thorough and extensive review, the president likes the idea and Democrats have said they want these individuals into their communities. So let's say if it works in everybody gets a win out of it. Again, this is not the ideal situation. The ideal solution is real simple. It's for congress, particularly Democrats in congress to sit down with the president do their jobs and help us stop this awful crisis. That's taking place at our border. It can't be denied or ignored anymore. Democrats including Obama's secretary from homeland security are now acknowledging that this is a crisis. They can either deal with it at the border and stop it from getting worse or they're going to have to take on some of that burden in their communities if that becomes an option again, that's not our first choice. Probably not even our second or third choice. But we have to look at all options as long as. Kratz were fused to do their jobs and fix the problem. I don't understand why the presence attracted to it at all it actually could encourage more immigrants. It's would be easier for these migrants put down roots in the US in sanctuary cities. It seems counter to his objectives. Yeah. This isn't the president's plan. His top priority is to stop the flow of illegal immigration coming into our country to begin with Democrats and courts, frankly, keep tying the president's hands and stopping him from being able to do that. We have a massive number of people that are already here we need to take away some of that burden on all of the communities that are along the border like San Diego, and El Paso and look at other options, again, not our first choice. Ideally, congress would fix a problem. They continue to kick the can down the road and not deal with the problem in front of them. They'd rather spend all of their time attacking the president and on these baseless and tax payer funded investigations instead of doing what they were elected to do. And that's actually solve problems. We hope that they will find at some point over the course of their next several days weeks and months to do their jobs and help the president solve row pop. Whether it's this one whether it's healthcare or whether it's the other hundred things that we're trying to work on it. They seem to want to just continue to ignore the newer York Times reporting on his trip to the border last week. The President Trump urged Kevin mcalinden now the acting secretary of homeland security to close the border and that he told my border agents, they're not to let to not let migrants in according to CNN the agents were told by their leaders they had to follow the law, and they'd be personally liable. If they did with the president said homeland security officials were pretty alarmed by what they heard down there at the border last week. How many pushed back on this? As has the president. They both pushed back secretary Nielsen as well as the president outlook towards I don't know about you. But CNN isn't usually my first stop for a good source, particularly not when it comes to this president the president is actually the president trying to enforce laws. Not go around them. We're a country of laws. We have a president who supports that. And is not asking anybody to do anything outside of those ballots. In fact, he's asking congress to step up and give greater legal standing. So that they can do more to stop this crisis. No one's trying to skirt the law, and certainly not being encouraged by the president. You don't see in there. The also took on the New York Times less than a tweet about the story. And he said that they never even called a check to the truth. But the reporter may gave him and says they actually sent emails to the White House press office three emails that were acknowledging there was simply refused to comment. So who's telling the truth or the president or Maggie Haberman? Look the New York Times regularly steps out of bounds. Even when we respond and tell them something's not true. They still run with the story. I'm not sure that particular story that's in question on this front. But again, I'm going to take the word of the president versus CNN or the New York Times any day of the week. But the times did call chat, correct? I I'm not sure about this particular story. I'd have to look back seeing what story they're talking about. We do talk to them regularly in a lot of times we push back on a story. And that's simply not enough for them. They like to run with anonymous sources on the regular basis about this president. It's an unprecedented amount of negative coverage that not only them, but a number of other outlets. Spend over ninety percent of the coverage about this president is negative despite the fact that our country's doing extremely well. Our economy is booming. Isis has been defeated in Syria. We've gotten rid of countless regulations that have allowed our economy to grow that have allowed more jobs to pour in that have made us an energy dominant country again the country is doing extremely well yet. If you look at the media coverage, you would think that the whole place was falling apart. I think that is a real problem, and certainly something the president's gonna continue to call out. I think every president feels feels they get done fair. Every once in a while the question is whether or not that after. Absolutely say that the question the question the, but that's the question, though, is that who's telling the truth about whether or not they were contacted. But I do want to move on right now. The prisons have been sending out those tweets this week about congresswoman Ilhan, Omar attacking her for how she characterize the nine eleven attacks included in that tweet those images of the towers burning a lot of criticism from Democrats, including the house speaker Nancy Pelosi and this from former Carson better Rourke. This is an incitement violence."
