Rep. Lloyd Doggett on Trump’s Comment About Sending the Military to Southern Border

 

Washington, D.C. — Today, U.S. Congressman Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), senior Member on the House Ways & Means Committee said the following in response to President Trump’s comments on sending the military to the southern border:

“This is only the election-eve political emergency, not a true ‘National Emergency.’  It’s not about border security, but Trump’s own political insecurity in his fact-free environment.  No lie is too big for him to promote.  A Master of Distraction, Trump hopes that hyperventilating about a diminishing number of mostly Honduran women and children about 1,000 miles away will rally his anti-immigrant base.  This is a shameless waste of taxpayer dollars.”
