After making dubious claims about immigration and voter fraud during a tax cut event in West Virginia, President Trump said Thursday he would like to see 2,000 to 4,000 National Guard troops deployed along the Mexican border for an indefinite length of time.
The venue was filled with several hundred supporters, all of which were invited due to their political affiliation or ties to the people involved with today's event. He added that "you're not getting that help right now". The Republican measure cut taxes on corporations and the wealthy, and gave more modest savings for many middle-class and lower-income Americans.
His final destination is still unclear, but he is expected to focus on the benefits of the new tax reform plan.
At least one woman, the wife of a mail carrier, broke down in tears as she told the President how her family was able to get back more than 2-thousand dollars through the tax cuts.
This was President Trumps's fourth visit to West Virginia.
Although Trump's administration billed the event as an official visit to tout the benefit of the tax cut package Trump signed into law a year ago, Trump literally threw away his single page of prepared remarks and delved into 20 freewheeling minutes, alternating between policy points and political jabs. "Joe, he voted against". Joe Manchin, a Democrat who has expressed openness to working with the White House, for opposing the GOP tax plan.
Families, business owners, and law makers were all invited to listen to the stories of West Virginians who were able to put money back into their pockets after the tax cut bill was passed. "He also voted against medical help and health care". "I'll be honest with you". I also think he's taught other countries to respect America. They always like to say, 'Oh that's a conspiracy theory.' Not a conspiracy theory, folks.
Suspected members of MS-13 are accused of carrying out the murder of Raymond Wood, a teenager from Lynchburg who was found dead in Bedford County in March, 2017.
Trump, who lost the 2016 popular vote to Hillary Clinton largely because of a 3.5 million vote defeat in California, singled out that state during a tirade in which he claimed that Democrats support illegal immigration because they want more voters.
"Next April you're going to, in many cases, one page, one card", he said.
"I'm not a political person by any means", Jon Lilly told the president before adding that he is just a simple family man.
