Trump Tweets Defense of Border Declaration

Will Donald Trump Win the 2020 Election?


President Donald Trump early Monday reiterated his position that there is a state of emergency at the nation’s southern border and his defense of a border wall.

“We have a State of Emergency at our Southern Border. Border Patrol, our Military and local Law Enforcement are doing a great job, but without the Wall, which is now under major construction, you cannot have Border Security. Drugs, Gangs and Human Trafficking must be stopped!” the president tweeted.

His comment came after 58 former national security officers said Sunday they plan to issue a statement saying the declaration has no factual basis behind it, and on the day before the House will vote on whether to block Trump’s declaration.

The officers’ statement has been signed by former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice, Obama’s CIA director and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, among others.
