Trump: ‘As President, the Defense of Our Nation Is My Highest and Most Important Duty’
TRUMP: “As president, the defense of our nation is my highest and most important duty. This is the defense of our nation, just like we prepare for other nations that you think more traditionally is what that sentence refers to. When it comes to keeping the American people safe, I will never ever back down. I didn’t need this fight. This is a rough fight. We’re dealing against people who think that if they can stop me from building the wall — again, we've already done a lot of work, but they it’s a good thing for 2020. Because they’re not going to win. They think if they can stop me from building the wall, that’s good. This is the reason why they don’t want the wall built. Because they all know it works. They all approved it numerous times. Chuck Schumer had his hand up every time this would come up. The senators know this."
