President Trump suggests opposition to his proposed barrier at the southern border is either unintelligent or politically motivated.
The President, in a tweet today, said only “fools or people with a political agenda don’t want a wall or steel barrier to protect our country from crime, drugs, and human trafficking.”
This comes as the Trump Administration and GOP lawmakers seek to negotiate border wall funding with democrats.
The President has also left open the possibility he will declare a National Emergency to build the wall if a funding deal cannot be reached.
