Trump: ‘Any Measure that Funds the Government Must Include Border Security’

‘It is the solemn promise to protect and defend the United States of America and it is our sacred obligation’

TRUMP: "At this moment, there’s a debate over funding border security and the wall. Also called so that I give them a little bit of an out, steel slats. We don’t use the word wall, necessarily, but it has to be something special to do the job. Steel slats. I have made my position very clear, any measure that funds the Government must include border security. Has to. Not for political purposes but for our country, for the safety of our community. This is not merely my campaign promise, this is the promise every lawmaker made. It is the solemn promise to protect and defend the United States of America and it is our sacred obligation. We have no choice."
