Defense Secretary James Mattis just replied to criticism of President Trump’s move to send troops to the Mexican border. The media and Democrats are claiming the administration’s move is a “political stunt”. Secretary Mattis had a great reply to that!
“The support that we provide to the secretary for homeland security is practical support based on the request from the commissioner of customs and border police, so we don’t do stunts in this department.”
“We don’t do stunts”…You’ve gotta love that classic line from Mattis! President Trump tweeted out a stern message to the caravan: TURN AROUND!
President Trump released a great video backing up what he said in the tweet above:
Tom Homan made a great point on why it’s so important to move troops in swiftly: “We’ve got to show the other caravans we’re taking action.”
