CNN’s Chris Cuomo stunned his liberal audience and silenced Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer with a strong defense of Trump and his border wall last night.
Look, this is all coming down to politics and that is a shame for America because we have a problem down on the border that requires our leaders to come together and find a solution.
To do so we have to move past cheap rhetoric (on both sides) and focus on what works and what does not.
And according to CNN of all places, walls work and we need barriers where they make sense and technology where they don’t.
That has always been our policy by the way and the Democrats have always agreed – that is why we have hundreds of border wall right now – and that is why their position is untenable.
This is what the Democrats hope you will forget during the debate, but when CNN contradicts them in primetime, you know they are have losing hand.
From The Daily Caller: CNN anchor Chris Cuomo defended President Donald Trump’s proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border for the second night in a row on Tuesday.
“Let’s just get something straight for the audience right now because this is one of those things that’s literally been bothering me — almost ruined my vacation,” Cuomo asserted. “There is a barrier system all along the southern border. They need more.”
“Anybody who does the reporting, anybody who talks to the people down there doing the work — the men and women — they need more of what the president is increasingly describing as his own idea for a bollard fence,” Cuomo said.
A bollard fence also refers to steel slats, which Trump has increasingly embraced at the request of Border Patrol agents and as a compromise to Democrats. Cuomo also noted that Democrats agreed to finance something similar in the past.
CNN analyst Gloria Borger chimed in with a Democratic talking point, arguing that Democrats believe a wall is “not necessary because there are other ways to attack the problem that are better.”
“But is that true?” Cuomo shot back. “Who says that a barrier isn’t helpful?”
“Wanting barriers along the border is not propaganda. It’s not immoral. It’s not wrong,” Cuomo said Monday.
