CNN host John King tried to parse out all of the president’s statements about immigration on Tuesday to try to find a coherent policy approach.
“It’s hard to follow sometimes,” King said. “He started off by criticizing this caravan… the president at the beginning talked as if they’d already crossed into the United States, then he gave the Mexican government credit for breaking it up and dissuading them from moving forward, and then he says he’s going to send the military to the border. It’s hard to follow.”
“Republicans have controlled the House since 2011, they’ve controlled the Senate since 2015, the president was railing against Democratic laws — we’ve had an all-Republican Washington for quite some time,” he said.
