CNN’s New Day Mocks Using Disaster Relief to Fund Wall: ‘Who’s Going to Pay for the Wall? Hurricane Victims!’ (Mediaite)

CNN’s New Day shared reporting that the Trump administration is looking into border wall funding from unused disaster relief funds that Congress approved for victims of national disasters in Puerto Rico, Florida, and California.

Hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota then mocked President Donald Trump’s famous campaign call and response to his “build that wall” base in which then-candidate Trump would ask “who’s going to pay for that wall?” Of course, his loyal supporters would yell in response, “Mexico!”
