President Trump recently expressed his frustration with Democrats over the border wall and the shutdown before boarding Marine One. He said that part of the problem is that Democrats don’t care about crime.
Here’s what Trump said, via the White House website:
THE PRESIDENT: If we declare a national emergency, we have a tremendous amount of funds — tremendous — if we want to do that, if we want to go that route. Again, there is no reason why we can’t come to a deal. But you have another side that doesn’t care about border security. The Democrats — which I’ve been saying all along — they don’t give a damn about crime. They don’t care about crime. They don’t care about gang members coming in and stabbing people, and cutting people up. They don’t care about crime.
And if they’re not going to care about crime, then I agree they shouldn’t do anything at the border. But I care about crime and I care about drugs. We’re spending a fortune on trying to stop drugs, and they pour in through the border. But I see it more now than ever before. The Democrats don’t care about the border and they don’t care about crime.

He makes an excellent point. Also, have you noticed that the media never asks Democrats about this?
