President Trump pushed for the wall and other border security at his campaign rally Monday night in El Paso, Texas.
"The border city of El Paso, Texas, used to have extremely high rates of violent crime — one of the highest in the country, and considered one of our nation's most dangerous cities," Trump said then. “Now, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities."
"Walls save lives. Walls save tremendous numbers of lives," Trump said to applause.
Trump also called out liberals and wealthy donors who oppose border security yet live in houses with massive walls and gates.
He said, “The biggest proponents of open borders are rich liberals and wealthy donors. These are hypocrites who oppose security for you while living their entire lives -- I do too, to be honest with you. I'm guilty! I'm guilty! I also live behind walls. Okay? They live behind walls and gates and they have guards all over the place. Me too! Because I want to be safe and I want to make America safe if you don't mind.”
