During her visits to the southern border with Mexico, first lady Melania Trump “saw the danger” that justifies the need for stronger border security.
That’s according to President Donald Trump, who told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures,” that his wife has a “very big heart.”
“She came home and told me a couple of things,” the president said. “She said it’s a very sad situation. Very, very sad. She was really impressed with border patrol, how professional they were. She came and said that, and she was really saddened by the plight of people.”
“But she was so strong on how professional the border patrol, the agents, the law enforcement is along the border,” Trump said. “She couldn’t believe it.”
“And she saw the danger,” he continued. “She saw the – you look at it, it just looks like danger. In the meantime we have to have strong border protection.”
The first lady’s office shared a video online of Mrs. Trump’s visit.
“Yesterday, I visited @CBParizona facilities & a nonprofit social service shelter of @hhsgov in #Arizona,” the caption read. “Thank you to the compassionate & dedicated law enforcement & care providers working hard to secure our nation & take care of children in a difficult situation.”
The president said he was glad to see Democrats calling to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as this will hurt them at the election polls.
“You get rid of ICE you’re going to have a country that you’re going to be afraid to walk out of your house,” Trump said. “I love that issue if they’re going to actually do that.”
Today's visit to #Texas to spend time with children & thank the many hardworking individuals helping to care for them was very meaningful. Thank you to @SecAzar @HHSGOV for traveling w me today & the care you are giving these children in such a difficult time. pic.twitter.com/P5orrJ4k6p

He also pointed to his nemesis, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., as the “new leader” of the Democratic Party, and was encouraged to see the party move further left.
“Between Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi and getting rid of ICE and having open borders … all it’s going to do is lead to massive, massive crime. That’s going to be their platform, open borders, which equals crime,” Trump said. “I think they’ll never win another election.”
“So I’m actually quite happy about it.”
