President Trump After Marine One Arrival from Camp David

Washington, DC....You haven’t had enough. You haven’t had enough? Q (Inaudible) Pelosi and Schumer today, sir? THE PRESIDENT: So, we’ve been in touch with a lot of people, and I informed my folks to say that we’ll build a steel barrier. Steel. It’ll be made out of steel. It’ll be less obtrusive, and it’ll be stronger. But it’ll be less obtrusive, stronger, and we’re able to use our great companies to make it, by using steel. So we’re going to be doing a steel barrier, and that gives us great strength at the border.

Q (Inaudible) DACA at all?

THE PRESIDENT: I would consider DACA, but I think we’d complicate it. I’d rather have the Supreme Court rule and then work with the Democrats on DACA. I want to help with DACA, but I’d rather have — because, you know, it’s going to be before the Supreme Court very soon. And rather than doing something with DACA — now, frankly, I’d rather work with the Democrats. Let the Supreme Court rule first.

Q (Inaudible) calling it a national emergency. (Inaudible)?

THE PRESIDENT: No, we’re looking at a national emergency, because we have a national emergency. Just read the papers. We have a crisis at the border of drugs, of human beings being trafficked all over the world. They’re coming through. And we have an absolute crisis, and of criminals and gang members coming through. It is national security. It’s a national emergency.

Q (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT: We’ll be letting you know fairly soon.

Q If you were to declare a national emergency, how would you pay for the wall? Where would the money come from?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, we have a lot of different ways. I’m not going to get into that. I’m just saying, we are looking at it very strongly, but hopefully we can do it this way. And as I told you, it’s going to be a steel border, and that’s going to give us great strength.

Q Why do you think the Democrats would agree to a steel border?

THE PRESIDENT: They don’t like concrete, so we’ll give them steel. Steel is fine. Steel is actually — steel is actually more expensive than concrete, but it will look beautiful and it’s very strong. It’s actually stronger.

Q You said government workers will make an adjustment if (inaudible).

THE PRESIDENT: I think they will make an adjustment because they want to see the border taken care of. You know, government workers want to see the border taken care of. It affects them very dearly.

Q But most of them make $500 a week. (Inaudible) to make an adjustment.

THE PRESIDENT: They love our country, and they want to make sure that we have a strong border.

Q (Inaudible) most of them are Democrats, sir?


Q You’re saying that most of the people are Democrats (inaudible).

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t know if Democrats or not. Probably, in this case, a lot of them are Democrats. You have a lot of Republicans too. But regardless — I mean, that’s the way it is. Those people are great Americans. They’re great patriots. They want to make sure we have a strong border. Very important.

Q (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT: Well, we’re looking at everything.

Q What do you say to Americans who (inaudible)?

THE PRESIDENT: It’ll all work out. What we need is we need a strong border. We have criminals coming in. We have human traffickers coming in. We have drugs pouring in. We have things happening that you don’t want to even know about. And it’s been that way for decades, and we can’t have it anymore. And because of the strength of our economy — the stronger it is — it’s probably the greatest economy we’ve ever had. And because of that, it’s happening even more so. We have to stop it.

Thank you, everybody. Have a good day. Thank you.

There are ZERO CHARGES President Trump can be impeached over since being sworn into office and anything before that he CANNOT be impeached over. The Liberal Progressive Socialist Leninist Marxism Communist Fascist leaning Democrats and the Republicans In Name Only seriously need to go study Constitutional Law and re read the Constitution itself. Oh let me guess those crying have never read the Constitution nor the Federalist Papers nor tried to research Constitutional Law. Silly Liberals politics is for Mature Educated Adults not crying Children with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

      Sanders Lies On Fox Sunday
      Posted on: 2019-01-07 11:18:17   By: Anonymous
      The serial liar Sarah Sanders tried to tell Cris Wallace that over 5,000 + terrorists came across our southern border- a blatant lie Cris challenged.

      Wallace- I looked into the assertions (lies) and found no terrorists entered over the southern border, in fact all were stopped at foreign airports, their names were on the no-fly list.

      This is the typical of the lies told daily by the liar in chief, and his puppets.

      Mick Mulvaney also lied his arse off in the Meet The Press interview.

      All these people have are lies. If you believe them, you have been duped.

      Shut off Fox.

      The news media is not the enemy of the people, trump is.
      Lying daily is a tool he learned from his idol- Adolf Hitler.

        what liberals conveniently forget is there have been calls to close the borders since the 70's and there has been talk of terrorist coming over that same border and training others in mexico and south america. liberals are not very educated. much like losers do not often win if at all rarely like seeing a blue moon.

    What a joke. Sad day for our Country when this ass hat stole the election. Good riddance. Glad when he resigns in disgrace or better yet, is removed from office forcefully. He's an embarrassment.

      Rupert Murdoch
      Posted on: 2019-01-07 11:34:27   By: Anonymous
      Kevin Rudd, when Prime Minister of Australia said "Rupert Murdoch is a cancer to our democracy".

      Murdoch after spreading lies in Australia then moved to London England, and bought up a media empire there , and spread the same lies used in Australia , and changed UK politics. Murdoch then moved to the United States, and again spread lies starting Fox news , which is not news, but an organ for Conservative politics using lies and misinformation.

      Fox is a cancer to American Democracy, it is very apparent. Fox employs the same propaganda tools of Hitler and his information Minister Joseph Goebbles.
      This was how Hitler turned Germany into a fascist nationalistic state.
      Repeated over and over was attacks on non aligned media , vilified as "the enemy of the people". Sound familiar.

      trump this morning once again tweeted off this constant meme "the media is the enemy of the people".

      The press is compromised by corporate monopolies, but only Fox is clearly an organ of the fascist nationalist Republican party.

    Trump's biggest legal problem isn't Mueller or an impeachment. His biggest challenge are the grand juries currently sitting in New York (Manhattan District Attorney) and Albany (State Attorney General) Counties in New York State looking into Trump's fraudulent business dealings. A state can indict a President and he cannot pardon himself for state crimes -- different sovereign entity. You want a Republic form of government? Well dual sovereignty is precisely that -- the states and/or the Feds can indict, prosecute, convict, and imprison independently without deference to the other. I would love to see Trump in Attica State Prison where he can talk about the great walls they use to build and how great it is to be among the common people. GO ORANGE.

          Yes! I think steel is terrific! But why can't we just give him a picket fence and some of that bamboo crap, it would be much cheaper and keep his supporters happy. As they believe all his lies anyway, it wouldn't make a bit of difference, fox news would report it's been built. It's still a fence, people believe his wall has already partly been built. It's all fukin imaginary kinda like steven r smith's woodshed. The so called shut in he claims to be, gets so offended by imaginary marijuana grows he would go on a crime spree if he slightly smelled weed. Yes that is the character of a trump supporter. Let's not forget his sex addiction caused by the loosening up dirty dope! Keep up the good work stevie.. turd blossom troller.

    The People vs. Donald J. Trump
    By David Leonhardt

    The presidential oath of office contains 35 words and one core promise: to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Since virtually the moment Donald J. Trump took that oath two years ago, he has been violating it.

    He has repeatedly put his own interests above those of the country. He has used the presidency to promote his businesses. He has accepted financial gifts from foreign countries. He has lied to the American people about his relationship with a hostile foreign government. He has tolerated cabinet officials who use their position to enrich themselves.

    To shield himself from accountability for all of this — and for his unscrupulous presidential campaign — he has set out to undermine the American system of checks and balances. He has called for the prosecution of his political enemies and the protection of his allies. He has attempted to obstruct justice. He has tried to shake the public’s confidence in one democratic institution after another, including the press, federal law enforcement and the federal judiciary......

      Its nice to think about Federal prosecution and jail time for Trump. But if he is indicted in NY, the sentencing laws in NY are far more consequential -- mandatory minimums, longer maximums. And because the Trump-turd is from NY, has his businesses in NY, was raised in NY...he is 100% subject to NY law. Let Cyrus Vance Jr -- Manhattan DA -- give Trump the real feel for NY justice. Lock 'em up.
