Here we go. #TrumpAddress has begun. I'll be adding to this thread throughout.
"1 in 3 women are sexually assaulted on the trek [to the border]," says the guy who bragged about sexually assaulting women.
Trump is fearmongering about drugs coming through the border, but most illicit drugs come through legal ports of entry. A wall won't stop any of that.…
Despite what Trump claims, Democrats have consistently said they're willing to fund border security measures. They're just not willing to fund an ineffective wall that no one wants.
As expected, Trump tried to make his case by using anecdotes and scare-stories without presenting any data or statistics whatsoever.

We don't make policy based on isolated incidents & personal stories; we make policies based on evidence. Trump has none.
Notably, despite Trump's claim that there is a "crisis" at the border that must be addressed immediately, he did not declare a national emergency tonight. He simply shifted responsibility back to Congress so he can go back to doing nothing.
