Why would you negotiate with somebody who calls you a racist if you want a wall, who gives you $1 for a wall when the Democratic party supported $25 billion in the past? We're not gonna negotiate with people who see the world this way. We'll negotiate with Dick Durbin.
But I'm not gonna negotiate with somebody who calls the border patrol agents a bunch of nazis when they're trying to defend the border against a mob. These caravans have changed everything. The reason you need $5 billion now and not 1.6 is the border is deteriorating in terms of security.
Right now the people running the show on the left are radical liberal Democrats who don't see a border security problem. They see their own government being the problem, not the illegal immigrant. Until that changes, we'll never get anywhere. There's a deal to be had here, but it will include a wall.
And if there's no wall in this deal, we'll never have a deal.
