Vice President Mike Pence praised President Donald Trump for the recent government shutdown that failed to secure money for Trump’s border wall, which Trump promised for years Mexico would pay for.
Pence shared his gaslighting on “CBS This Morning,” and said there may be another shutdown on the way:
I never think it’s a mistake to stand up for what you believe in, and I think what the American people admire most about this president is he says what he means and he means what he says in a very real sense.
He said there’s a crisis at our southern border. He said he was determined to get the funding to build a wall and secure our border, and he was willing to take a stand to accomplish that.
Well, I think our hope is that there’s not, but I can’t make that guarantee. The simple truth is that Congress needs to do their job. The president laid out last night a common-sense approach to deal with what is a very real crisis on our southern border.
