President Trump returned from a trip to the US’ Mexican border in Texas to declare the flow of illegal immigrants “an invasion.” Trump also his desire to build a border wall, claiming the US “cannot be safe” without one.

“I just got back and it is a far worse situation than almost anyone would understand, an invasion!” the president tweeted, before singling out House and Senate Democratic leaders for failing to provide funding for his planned border wall.
=============================================
Government statistics do not support the definition of anything near an 'invasion.' Trump is using his usual faculty for distorting the truth to hype his intended course of declaring a national emergency where none exists in order to justify his campaign pledge of a wall.

Anything to appeal to the base... while the rest of the nation continues to hold him responsible for shutting down government... over a wall... that has no prayer of doing all that much.

I've said it dozens of times over the past several days, the history books will not be kind to this President or the critters in Congress.

From his corporate days, he loves being an autocrat. Too bad our country now has to suffer through what's left of the Trump term.

And we know it is all an engineered narrative, but the MSM is doing the "pete and repeat" and every word of Trump's distorted diatribe ia all over the MSM. Trump is building a base of believers to swear by anthing Trump states. Tell the Big Lie often enough and it becomes the truth and the MSM engenders the often enough part.
