President Donald Trump claimed “a lot” of Democrats are “calling and they are breaking” with their party over the government shutdown, but failed to name one lawmaker:
We have a very big crisis, a humanitarian crisis on the border. Everybody knows it. They know it and many of them are saying, “We agree with you.” Many of them are calling and many of them are breaking.
Trump backed off his previous threats to declare a national emergency atthe southern border (proving it’s not really an emergency): “I’m not looking to call a national emergency.”
