Trump spars with reporters over data for funding

2019-02-15 19:52
President Donald Trump spars with reporters over the statistics he uses to say he needs to use emergency powers to protect the United States from drug dealers and immigrants. Trump told stories, without providing evidence, of horrific abuse of women being smuggled across the U.S.-Mexico border. He also said the border wall would be needed to battle drug cartels as part of a "virtual invasion" from Mexico. The president declared a national emergency and would find other funds for the wall after expressing unhappiness about a congressional border security deal.
