Trump Stands by Remarks on El Paso Border Security After Fact Checks, Rebuke from Mayor: They’re ‘Full of Crap’

‘People from El Paso, am I right?’


TRUMP: “And I've been watching where they've been trying to say oh, the wall didn't make that much. Well, you take a look at what they did with their past crimes and how they meet them from very serious to much less serious. You took a look at what the real system is. I spoke to people that have been here a long time. They said when that wall went up, it's a whole different ball game. Is that a correct statement? Whole different ball game. I will give you another example. And I don't care whether a mirror is a Republican or Democrat, they are full of crap when they say it hasn't made a big difference. I heard the same thing from the fake news. They said oh, crime actually stayed the same. Didn't stay the same. Went way down. Looked at what they did to their past crimes and look at how they recorded those past crimes. Went way, way down. These people, you know you'd think they'd want to get to the bottom of a problem and solve a problem. Not trying to pull the wool over everybody's eyes. So for those few people that are out there on television, saying oh, I didn't make too much of a difference. They made a tremendous -- people from El Paso, am I right?”
