In Newly Uncovered Audio File, Mick Mulvaney Shreds Trump’s Border Wall As ‘Absurd and Childish’ (AUDIO) |
Democrats aren’t the only ones who think that Trump’s wall idea is idiotic. His own acting chief of staff believes it’s absurd and childish. And unfortunately for him, he’s been caught on tape saying it.
Donald Trump is desperately trying to get funding for his stupid wall before the end of the year. But his own administration thinks it’s a bad idea.
On Friday CNN’s KFile uncovered an audio tape from 2015 of the incoming acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, talking about Trump’s border wall idea. Mulvaney called it “simplistic” and “absurd.”
“The fence doesn’t solve the problem. Is it necessary to have one, sure? Would it help? Sure. But to just say build the darn fence and have that be the end of an immigration discussion is absurd and almost childish for someone running for president to take that simplistic of [a] view,” Mulvaney said on the tape.
Earlier this week Trump agreed to sign the funding bill passed by Congress which did not fund his wall. But in typical Trump fashion, he threw everything into absolute chaos when he flipped and refused to sign the bill. His reversal followed a full 24 hours of Fox News shredding him for caving on the wall. This week was yet another example of the way that the wing-nuts at Fox are running the country.
Congress has until midnight on Friday to pass a bill that Trump will sign, or the government will shut down just in time for Christmas.
