Sarah Sanders: We’d get a lot more done if Democrats weren’t in the way


PRESIDENT SIGNED HIS HAT. BRIAN: 23 MINUTES BEFORE THE TOP OF THE HOUR. LET’S BRING IN SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. BUILDING ON THE WALL COMMENT, FIRST STORY IN DRUDGE, LOOKS LIKE THE WALL, WE HAVE ONLY TWO MILES BUILT OF THE WALL? WHAT IS GOING ON THERE? DOES THE PRESIDENT STILL THINK HE CAN GET 400 MILES DONE OF THE WALL BY END OF THE YEAR?>>ABSOLUTELY, THAT IS AN INCORRECT FIGURE. FAR MORE THAN TWO MILES HAVE BEEN BUILT. WE’RE STILL ON TRACK TO GET CLOSE TO 500 MILES BUILT BY THE END OF THE YEAR. THE ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS WORKING WITH DHS AND DOD ARE PUTTING A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF EFFORT NOT JUST BUILDING NEW WALL, TAKING DOWN SOME OF THE BARRIERS THAT HAVE EXISTED THAT ARE COMPLETELY INEFFECTIVE, AND PUTTING IN EFFECTIVE BORDER WALL THEY HAVE BEEN PUTTING IN THE LAST COUPLE MONTHS. THAT WILL CONTINUE. WE’RE MAKING GREAT PROGRESS ON THAT FRONT. WE WOULD BE DOING IT A LOT FASTER AND GETTING A LOT MORE OF IT DONE IF DEMOCRATS HADN’T CONTINUE TO STAND IN THE WAY OF SECURING OUR BORDER, STOPPING THIS NATIONAL SECURITY AND HUMANITARIAN CRISIS AND ACTUALLY WORKING WITH THE PRESIDENT INSTEAD OF WORKING AGAINST HIM, WE WOULD BE MAKING DOUBLE THAT PROGRESS BY THE END OF THE YEAR IF THEY WOULD ACTUALLY GET ON BOARD AND HELP OUT. BRIAN: HOW MUCH IS BUILT?>>I KNOW THERE HAVE BEEN, THERE IS OVER 100 MILES, I THINK IT IS CLOSE TO 115 MILES HAVE BEEN FINISHED. AGAIN WE FEEL COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT WE’RE ON TRACK TO GET RIGHT AROUND 500 FINISHED BY THE END OF THE YEAR. STEVE: SPEAKING OF THE WALL SUIT THE GUY WAS WEARING AT THE RALLY, THEY SOLD OUT. HAS ANYBODY EVER GONE TO THE WHITE HOUSE IN THAT SUIT?>>NOT THAT I KNOW OF. WE’LL CERTAINLY HAVE TO CHECK. SOMEONE UNEXPECTEDLY CALLED ON THE STAGE AT TRUMP RALLY, I THINK HE SHOULD BE GLAD HE WASN’T FIRED IN FRONT OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. MAYBE WE TYKE HIM WITH US TO EVERY RALLY MOVING FORWARD. I THINK IT IS CERTAINLY REINFORCEMENT OF THE MESSAGE THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT AND A RECOGNITION OF THE FACT THAT PEOPLE ACROSS THE COUNTRY SUPPORT WHAT THE PRESIDENT’S DOING, NOT JUST BY THE SUIT, BY THE SHEER NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT SHOWED UP. TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE CAME OUT TO THAT RALLY AND EVERY OTHER ONE WANTING TO HELP PUSH THE PRESIDENT’S POLICIES FORWARD AND HE JUST GOT TO DO IT IN A MUCH MORE UNIQUE AND EXCITING WAY. AINSLEY: YOU’RE GOING TO SEE MORE OF THEM IN THE AUDIENCE BECAUSE THEY ARE SOLD OUT TO STEVE’S POINT. WE WANTED TO ASK YOU YOUR REACTION, THEY’RE NOT TAKING ANYMORE MIGRANTS IN AT LEAST TEMPORARILY AT THE PROCESSING CENTER IN McALLEN, TEXAS, RIO GRANDE PROCESSING CENTER BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE THE FLU. MOST RECENTLY A 16-YEAR-OLD CHILD DIED FROM THE FLU. WHAT IS YOUR REACTION?>>ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE CASE, SOMETHING THAT SHOULDN’T HAPPEN AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT, EXACTLY WHAT HE IS TRYING TO PREVENT. THE PRESIDENT AND HIS ADMINISTRATION REQUESTED FUNDING, SUPPLEMENTAL FUNDING JUST TWO WEEKS AGO TO HELP WITH THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS AT THE BORDER. DEMOCRATS HAVE STILL FAILED TO DO THAT. UNFORTUNATELY THIS PROBLEM IS GOING TO GET WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER. IF MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND THE DEMOCRAT PARTY CONTINUE TO REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROBLEM AND START TO HELP US FIX IT, THEY HAVE TO WORK WITH US. WE NEED THAT FUNDING, WE NEED TO FIX OUR LAWS AND A BROKEN SYSTEM. THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN RIGHT ABOUT THIS FROM DAY ONE. HE DOESN’T WANT TO BE, THIS TO CONTINUE WHICH IS WHY HE HAS BEEN SO VOCAL AND HAS BEEN PUSHING SO HARD AND SO AGGRESSIVELY TO GET THIS FIXED. WE HAVE TO FIX LAWS, WE HAVE TO TAKE AWAY MAGNETS THAT ARE PUTTING PEOPLE THROUGH THIS TREACHEROUS JOURNEY. BRIAN: LINDSEY GRAHAM OUTLINED IT, I DON’T SEE ANYBODY RALLYING BEHIND LINDSEY GRAHAM’S PROPOSAL. WILL THE PRESIDENT BRING IT UP AT 11:00 WHEN HE HAS NANCY PELOSI AND CHUCK SCHUMER AT THE WHITE HOUSE?>>I DON’T WANT TO GET AHEAD OF THE PRESIDENT’S MEETING BUT I WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED IF THIS DIDN’T COME UP. DEMOCRATS HAVE TO WORK WITH THIS ON THAT. THEY NEED TO WORK WITH US TO GET THE USMCA DEAL FINISHED AND VOTED ON AND PASSED THROUGH CONGRESS AND OUR WORKERS AND OUR UNIONS. EVERYBODY WINS BY THE USMCA DEAL. THE FACT THAT DEMOCRATS ARE DRAGGING THEIR FEET ON THAT SHOWS THEY CARE MORE ABOUT PLAYING PARTISAN POLITICAL GAMES THAN HELPING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE HOPE THEY COME TO THE TABLE, READY TO ACTUALLY DO THEIR JOBS AND LEGISLATE, QUIT FOCUSING ON THESE ABSURD INVESTIGATIONS. STEVE: REAL QUICKLY, THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN AFTER NANCY PELOSI IN 18 MINUTES MEETS WITH HOUSE DEMOCRATS TO DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT TO GO FORWARD WITH IMPEACHMENT. SHE SAYS NO. BUT THEN YOU HAVE GOT THE AOC TWITTER YESTERDAY SAYING FAILURE TO IMPEACH NOW IS NEGLECT OF DUE PROCESS. LOOKS LIKE THE DEMOCRATS ARE SPLIT.>>LOOK, I THINK THE DEMOCRAT ARE SPLIT BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME THAT RECOGNIZE WHAT A TERRIBLE IDEA THIS IS. THERE IS NO SUPPORT FOR IT IN THE COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY HAVE NO BASIS FOR IT. IT IS NOT JUST BAD POLITICALLY. IT IS BAD GOVERNING. THEIR JOB IS TO COME HERE AND DO SOMETHING AND GOVERN AND THEY’RE NOT DOING THAT. I THINK WHAT THEY’RE TAKING PLACE THIS MORNING, HOPEFULLY THEY WILL HAVE A COME-TO-JESUS MOMENT WHERE THEY REALIZE WHAT A TERRIBLE IDEA THIS IS. THERE IS NO BASIS WHATSOEVER FOR IMPEACHMENT. THE MUELLER REPORT WAS CONCLUSIVE. THERE WAS NO COLLUSION. THERE WAS NO OBSTRUCTION. IT IS TIME TO MOVE FORWARD AND GET SOME STUFF DONE.
