WASHINGTON — The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local):
President Donald Trump says that a border wall with Mexico would be an “important tool” for stopping the flow of drugs into the United States.
Trump tweeted Monday that, “the Wall is a very important tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and many others)!”
Trump approaches the symbolic 100-day mark for his administration this week, renewing his demands that a must-pass government funding bill should include money for the wall.
In a tweet Sunday, Trump jabbed at Democrats, who vigorously oppose wall funding.
He said, “the Democrats don’t want money from budget going to border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members.”
