President Trump landed a solid blow to both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama before bed on Thursday night.
It wasn’t even that hard, either.
All Trump did was use their own words on border security against them.
It was pretty simple, actually.
Pretty wild how Democrats used to be all for border security as recently as a handful of years ago.
Now, and possibly forever more? Fuhgeddaboutit.
In 2015, Hillary boasted about voting to build “barriers” on the southern border to keep out illegal aliens while she was a senator.
In 2009, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said illegal immigration is “wrong.”
On Hillary’s stance, per Weekly Standard:
“Well look,” Clinton said, “I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.”
On Schumer, via Fox News Insider:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has been an outspoken critic of President Trump’s immigration policies.
But in a speech in 2009, Schumer espoused views against illegal immigration that sound strikingly similar to what President Trump has said since 2015.
Speaking at an immigration policy conference at Georgetown Law, Schumer said, “Illegal immigration is wrong, and a primary goal of comprehensive immigration reform must be to dramatically curtail future illegal immigration.”
While speaking in Texas days before the midterm elections before 18,000 at the Toyota center, Trump said the Honduran migrant caravan (with some people reportedly from Congo, Bangladesh, and other nations) is paid for, and “Democrats had something to do with it.”
President Trump: You know what’s happening right now is a large group of people, called a caravan. (Boos) You know how this caravan started? You know what this means? (gestures cash payouts) I think the Democrats had something to do with it. And now they’re saying, I think we made a big mistake. We see how bad it is. How pathetic it is. How bad our laws are. They made a big mistake. And look that is an assault on our country. And in that caravan you have some very bad people. And we can’t let that happen to our House.

Earlier that day, 45 sent this tweet:
Chief Border Patrol Agent Rodney Scott appeared on CNN on Monday.
He dropped some truth bombs about the illegal migrant caravan that is attempting to make its way into America.
For example, did the left know that grown men were pushing women and children to the front and then throwing rocks at patrol agents?
How about that the migrants tore down a section of the border wall?
“What we saw over and over yesterday is that the group, the caravan as we call them, would push women and children to the front and then begin basically rocking our agents.”
Scott added, “That is correct. 42 crossed the border and were arrested. There were numerous people that actually made it across the border. We are in the process of building a new border wall. There were sections that were dilapidated sections made out of scrap metal that the military had gave us. The group breached a section of this. The group breached a couple sections of this. They actually tore down one section. They rushed across and that’s another time that they actually started assaulting our agents.”
Watch the videos below and you’ll see riot cops using tear gas to push back against the horde of migrants attempting to scurrying into the states…

Watching a livestream of hundreds of asylum seekers from the migrant caravan trying to cross my hometown’s Tijuana border with the US. It’s chaotic and I’m worried about a retaliatory approach by the US Government https://t.co/NP6XETLEzQ pic.twitter.com/sj3GXnejHg
