President Donald Trump told reporters that he is going to use U.S. troops to guard the U.S.-Mexico border until his border wall is built:
We are going to be guarding our border with our military. That’s a big step.
Trump claimed for two years that he would force Mexico to build the border wall, which he has failed to do. Trump has not even been able to get a budget through Congress to build his entire wall.
Trump falsely claimed that President Barack Obama made “changes that basically created no border.”
Trump claimed the Mexican government broke up a “caravan” of migrants who were heading to the United States because he told them too.
Trump also falsely claimed that he had been the toughest on Russia:
Probably nobody’s been tougher to Russia than Donald Trump. If we got along with Russia, that would be a good thing not a bad thing… And just about everybody agrees with that, except very stupid people.
