President Donald Trump responded to a question from NBC’s Kristen Welker on Thursday about the “human pain” being experienced by government employees left furloughed by the government shutdown over border security.

“Well, you know who has more human pain?” Trump responded. “The parents of people who had children killed by an illegal immigrant that should have never been in the country. Do you know who has more human pain? The husband that lost the wife or the wife that lost the husband to an illegal immigrant who came in five or six times who shouldn’t be here. That’s the human pain.”

Trump continued, saying that the government employees will be paid eventually and called NBC reporters the most “dishonest of all time.”

“The people who will be paid but maybe a little bit later, those people, many of them are on my side,” Trump said. “They want to see border security and by the way NBC may be the most dishonest reporters of all time.”

The comments came as Trump was departing the White House to survey the crisis on the U.S. southern border. The president will travel to McAllen, Texas, amid a partial government shutdown over funding for border security. Democratic congressional leaders refuse to give the $5.7 billion the president is requesting to fund the border wall.

The president gave an address to the nation Tuesday, in which he addressed the crisis at the border. Trump claimed there was an increase of violent crime, gang activity, child smuggling, abuse and drug trafficking because of the porous U.S.-Mexico border.

The speech marked his first primetime Oval Office address since taking office.

    He’s exactly right! Most “Congressional Leaders” have spoken in favor of border security over the past 30 years, along with presidents back, at least to Clinton. Had Obama asked for this allocation, they would have rushed it through in record time, and the damn wall would have been in place! Stay the course, Mr. President! Damn shame the morons in Conress (the opposite of PROGRESS) are being such babies! Imagine what they could accomplish if they worked with Mr. Trump… DRAIN THE SWAMP!

    Give’em hell, Mr. Trump!

    How do the people at NBC, et. al., sleep at night with all the dishonesty. They care not a whit for the American people – only the $**t they spread around. Traitors-each and every one of them. Shame. Shame. Shame.
    How can they be against security and safety of their fellow citizens? That includes Ms. Pelosi and Mr. Schumer.

    Are you Branch Trumpidians stupid or selectively forgetful?

    Remember on Dec. this: President Donald Trump said he would take responsibility for any potential government shutdown.

    And this: President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday that the country needs a “good ‘shutdown,'”

    How about this repeated promise: “Mexico will pay for the wall”.
    Or this promise: “Mexico will pay for the wall”.
    What part of his promise that, “Mexico will pay for the wall” don’t you understand?

    How about this: “No one will lose coverage. There will be insurance for everybody. Healthcare will be a “lot less expensive” for everyone”.

    Or this: “We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said in an interview with The Washington Post. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.”

    How many times did he campaign on: Declare China a currency manipulator?

    Remember this one: “I’m under a routine audit and it’ll be released, and as soon as the audit is finished it will be released”?

    Who can forget: Balance the federal budget ‘fairly quickly’

    “It can be done. … It will take place and it will go relatively quickly. … If you have the right people, like, in the agencies and the various people that do the balancing … you can cut the numbers by two pennies and three pennies and balance a budget quickly and have a stronger and better country”?

    What about: Sue his accusers of sexual misconduct
    “The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”

    Perhaps you Branch Trumpidians need another glass of kool-aid?
    Or… perhaps Vlad is showing his comrades the ignorance of Branch Trumpidians?

      You know he said it, but it’s the left wing liberals that will not negotiate, Trump has tried many times to negotiate new immigration laws. The liberal left doesn’t care about American safety because their child traffickers that keep them in kids for unscrupulous reasons would stop, their voter fraud would be stopped, and their globalist agenda to destroy this country with M13 killings would stop. Stop listening to the msm propaganda machine and turn on real true news of what is really going on that the news pundits won’t tell you.

      Amazing how one person can try to attack a sitting president by twisting his words and in the same moment quote another President. It just implodes all over himself and provides stronger support for the man he’s trying to smear. It just keeps happening and the lefty robots never seem to learn.

      If what you’re saying is all true, then hes doing no worse than every president before him. Every president lies to the people. Look at Obama and Clinton, what lies did they tell.

      Speaking of liars….. let’s start with that fuckface that you worship, Obama. Remember how he said you could keep your dr and your plan with his lame ass full of shit Obama Care? Just about every word out of his mouth was a lie. Most devisive,hypocritical, do nothing but drive the economy into the ground president we ever had was your hero Obama. So glad we have Trump! MAGA!!!!!!!

    The man’s interview with Hannity is amazing:

    HANNITY: You said earlier today that it’s likely that you are very likely going to declare a national emergency. How soon would that happen?

    TRUMP: If we don’t make a deal with Congress, most likely I will do that. I would actually say I would. I can’t imagine any reason why not because I’m allowed to do it. The law is 100 percent on my side.

    So if we can’t make a deal with Congress, we should be able to make a deal with Congress. If you look, Democrats in Congress, especially the new ones coming in, are starting to say, “Wait a minute, we can’t win this battle with Trump because of the fact that it’s just common sense. How can we say that a wall doesn’t work?” They show on helicopters empty fields and people just running through. And you put a wall — they can’t run through.

    HANNITY: What are the options, though, if you declare a national emergency? The Pentagon also has the funds available that they would be able to help support the building of the wall.

    TRUMP: If we don’t make a deal with Congress, which we should be able to. Really just common sense, and there is some compromise needed, and, look, they know that the wall is working. Do you know what works? A wheel. And a wall. They call it a medieval thing.

    Well, you know, I’m looking at all these very expensive cars all over here loaded up with machine guns and every single one of them has wheels. A wheel is an old thing. There are two things that they work. A wall would be so effective. It would solve so many killings and so much death and drugs and human trafficking. Where they tape up women on their face. They tape them up and put them in the back of a car or a van and they drive right through our border.

    Genius, pure genius!

      Wow, Keith…..you can copy and paste! You are such a moron! Here’s a good one…. remember when Trump said Obama was an awful president and Obama came back with his “drop the mike moment” saying “well at least I am president somethjng Mr Trump will not be”. That’s hilarious! Obama and his idiot followers like you, Keith, thought you had it all locked up and now you just can’t handle it. You lost! Get over it! Two years of whining is getting old! Go start a Barry O fan club or something and fuck off!!!

    President Trump is correct the ones that are at fault for the way of illegals in this country are the Democrats and just like every other time they refuse to take responsibility for their actions. We the American people want the safety of our country and the wall. By supporting illegals the Democrats are committing a crime. It is a crime to harbor illegals.

    I do know Trump is correct when he stated most of those furloughed employees really are behind him. I have read numerous posts from many of them, and while not being paid is painful, the security of our country is of even more importance, and they truly do support him. So piss on the demonrats.

    If they are so concerned about these employees why are the reporters not saying to the democrats just give the President the money for the wall.Generally layout are really concerned.

    Pelosi and Schumer did not expect a Republican President to stand up to them. They are so use to them caving through out the years. Now they have had a big surprise and don’t really know what to do. The two stooges are losing the argument and are up against it. As long as the Republicans stick with Trump, he can take Pelosi and Schumer down and get the money for the wall. I am behind our President 100%, I live in the Rio Grande River Valley and we need the wall, and we needed it badly. They can’t get it built too soon to suit the folks down here. Except for a few leftist that don’t know or care what is going on , they only care what they are told to care about by the Democrat party.

    Trump is so right! There has to be some reason they don’t want a wall either the Democrats are in bed with the United Nation or the Drug cartels and sex rings It can’t be any other reason, How else can they all become multimillionaires on a government salary!

    Someone somewhere (I don’t remember where I read it) said we could release El Chapos seized money – it was billions and use that for a wall? Can we do that? That would get it done whether the demos like it or not! LOL! AND it won’t cost tax payers a cent.
