President Donald Trump blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a Friday interview with CBS, saying, “I think she’s very bad for our country.” Trump blames Pelosi for standing in the way of securing the border and allowing human trafficking, drug trafficking and the needless deaths from illegal immigrant crime to continue.
“She’s — she’s costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars because what’s happening is, when you have a porous border and when you have drugs pouring in, and when you have people dying all over the country because of people like Nancy Pelosi who don’t want to give proper border security for political reasons — she’s doing a terrible disservice to our country,” he said.
On Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on border wall funding, Trump accused Pelosi putting politics over people.
“Basically, she wants open borders. She doesn’t mind human trafficking or she wouldn’t do this,” he said.
While Democrats and late-night liberal talk show hosts continue to claim walls are immoral, the fact is, they work.
Earlier this year, CNN showed footage around border areas where there was already a wall in place.
In virtually every case, there was little to no activity in those areas.
Sadly, too many vulnerable women and children are being victimized by criminals who take advantage of poorly-secured parts of the border.
Mexican drug cartels are infamous for using human smuggling and trafficking to support their criminal empires.
While Pelosi should be supporting the president on this, she is willing to sacrifice security for the sake of opposing Trump.
Trump stated, “She knows you need a barrier. She knows we need border security. She wanted to make a political point.”
Pelosi must be held accountable. She is in office to serve Americans, not to grandstand against President Trump.
