Erin Burnett on Trump’s El Paso Speech: Perception Is One Thing, Reality Is a Different One

‘Even the city’s Republican mayor is disputing the claim that the wall has cut violent crime in El Paso’


BURNETT: "Okay. Tonight the President is making the case in El Paso, which, by the way is a city which voted overwhelmingly against him for president. Only 26 percent of voters cast ballot for him there. So why go there? Well, tonight, team Trump is releasing a video with people from El Paso that claim the wall has made them safer. Perception is one thing, but reality is a whole different one. Even the city's Republican mayor is disputing the President's claim that the wall has cut violent crime in El Paso."
