President Trump holds his first ever address from the Oval Office, declaring a “crisis at the border” and arguing for funding towards the border wall.
In a nearly ten minute long speech, the President reiterated most drugs come through the southern border, noting every year the number of deaths those drugs cause exceed that of the Vietnam War.
He also called out democrats, suggesting their stances on the wall have changed since he took office in 2016.
Finally, the President claimed illegal aliens are heading to the United States due to the booming economy.
He said the U.S. will fund the wall indirectly through the passage of the newly-negotiated trade agreement with Canada and Mexico.
