Trump says undocumented migrants and unlawful medications are spilling over the outskirt from Mexico, notwithstanding insights that indicate illicit movement there is at a 20-year low and that many medication shipments likely are snuck through legitimate ports of passage.
Democrats blame Trump for utilizing dread strategies and spreading falsehood about the fringe circumstance so as to satisfy a 2016 battle guarantee as he looks toward his race for re-appointment in 2020.
The president has been attempting to present his defense to the general population, and support any congressional Republicans who may falter.
