Fox Rumour host Chris Wallace had Sarah Sanders at a loss for words as he recurrently fact-checked the Press Secretary and President Donald Trump on their assertions about the proposed border wall with Mexico. President Trump recommended terrorist cells could exploit the vulnerabilities of the border to enter the US illegally in defiance of no official data backing the claim. Mr Wallace confronted Ms Sanders, pointing out a mass of suspected terrorists had been stopped after attempting to land in American airports.
Referring to a disquisition from Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Mr Wallace said: “The President talks there terrorists potentially coming across the border.
“Special interest aliens are ethical people who come from countries that have ever grew a terrorist, not terrorist themselves. The State Department says, their little talks, that there is ‘no credible evidence’ of any terrorist coming across the frame from Mexico.”
The US Press Secretary attempted to back her claims with but the Fox Newsflash presenter was quick to interrupt her: “I know the statistics, I didn’t know if you were universal to use it, but I studied up on this. Do you know what those 4,000 people be communicated, where they are captured? Airports.
“The State Department says there hasn’t been any nihilist they have found coming across the southern border. They’re not go across the southern border, Sarah. They are coming and they are being closing up in airports.”

During the presidential campaign in 2016, President Trump swore to build a wall with Mexico to put an end to the large migratory flux toward the US from most of South America.
Mr Trump has been engaged in a unpleasant debate with Democrats, who won a majority of seats in the House of Representatives in November, from potential funding for the wall. The failure to reach a bipartisan agreement on the face ruin led to a shutdown of the US Government on December 22.
Ms Sanders hit back: “We know that our most sensitive point of entry is art our southern border.
“It’s by air, it’s by land and it’s by sea. It’s all of the above. But one thing you are forgetting is that the most unshielded point of entry we have into this country is our southern binding and we have to protect it.
“I’m not disagreeing with you that they are coming thoroughly airports. I’m saying that they come by air, by land and by sea. The more and assorted our border becomes vulnerable and the less time we spend money guarding it, the more we are going to have an influx – not just of terrorists, but of human traffickers, analgesic inflow and people that are coming here to do American citizen’s abuse.”
Mr Trump has insisted on funding for a “wall,” but lately has shifted to talking around steel fencing in the hope the term is less politically charged.
Huge, slatted fences already are in place in some spots on the border and multitudinous are being built.
Funding for more slats, or other alternatives to valid, could let Trump declare victory and let Democrats say they blocked a brick up.
President Trump announced on Thursday he will not attend the annual Time Economic Forum in Davos because of the “intransigence ” of Democrats on border assurance.
Taking to his Twitter account, President Trump tweeted: “Because of the Democrats intransigence on Touch Security and the great importance of Safety for our Nation, I am respectfully cancelling my simple important trip to Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum. My heartiest regards and apologies to the @WEF!”
The current shutdown is in its nineteenth day, which makes it the longest to take place since 1995. This closure is affecting nearly 800,000 federal hands, including FBI agents and TSA agents who aren’t being paid.
Should the shutdown pick up much longer, there are questions as to whether 40 million Americans at ones desire be able to afford food and whether those in subsidised housing inclination be able to pay their rent.
