In remarks today at the southern border, @POTUS: Millions of our citizens watched on Wednesday as a mob stormed the Capitol and trashed the halls of government.  As I have consistently said throughout my administration, we believe in respecting America's history and traditions...
That is why we are here today: to talk about what we must do to uphold the rule of law in America and how we must continue to support our law enforcement heroes.
For years, politicians ran for office promising to secure the border – only to get elected and do the exact opposite.  But unlike those who came before me, I KEPT MY PROMISES. Today, we celebrate an extraordinary milestone: the completion of the promised 450 miles of Border Wall.
We arrested nearly 500K illegal aliens with criminal records. We removed nearly 20K gang members from the US, including 4,500 members of MS-13.
Through the landmark reforms we have put into place, we have ended the immigration chaos and re-established American Sovereignty.
Now, instead of Catch-and-Release we have DETAIN-AND-REMOVE.
We instituted a series of historic policy changes to shut down asylum fraud.
This includes the groundbreaking agreement with Mexico known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, or MPP.  Under this agreement, if an illegal alien requests asylum they have to wait in Mexico until their case is heard.
Now, when an illegal immigrant is arrested at our border they can be sent to a neighboring country instead of into a U.S. community.
My Administration also instituted vital public health measures on the border in response to the China Virus. [...] Removing these protections would invite a public health catastrophe of epic proportions.
We also put into place vital measures to protect American workers, keep out terrorists, and stop the abuse of our welfare system.  Removing any of these measures would hamstring our workers, endanger our country, and cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars.
If our border security measures are reversed, it will trigger a tidal wave of illegal immigration.  This will be an unmitigated calamity for national security, public safety and public health.
We have many disagreements in this country, but we should all agree on the urgent need to secure our borders, protect our homeland, and allow law enforcement to fulfill its mission WITHOUT political interference.
ICE and Border Agents swore a sacred oath to uphold the law – and no political appointee should ever order them to violate that oath. The laws that Congress passed must be upheld.

🚨🚨🚨President @realDonaldTrump has signed H.R. 133, an Act making consolidated appropriations for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2021, providing coronavirus emergency response and relief, and for other purposes.
Statement from President @realDonaldTrump: “As President, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people in the form of $2,000 checks per adult and $600 per child.”
The President is sending a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed. Sending back to Congress a redlined version, item by item, accompanied by the formal rescission request to Congress insisting that those funds be removed from the bill.

.@realDonaldTrump: We are here to celebrate a historic breakthrough that will transform the lives of workers and families across the nation. For decades, the single biggest obstacle to building a modern transportation system has been the mountains of bureaucratic red tape in DC.
We just completed an unprecedented top-to-bottom overhaul of the infrastructure approval process. This is a truly historic breakthrough—which means better roads, bridges, tunnels and highways for every U.P.S. driver and every citizen across our land.
Today’s action is part of my Administration’s fierce commitment to slashing the web of needless bureaucracy that is holding back our citizens. The last administration increased the Federal Register by 16,000 pages... Under my administration, we have cut nearly 25,000 pages...

.@POTUS @realDonaldTrump: This monument will never be desecrated, these heroes will never be defaced, their legacy will never be destroyed, their achievements will never be forgotten, & Mount Rushmore will stand FOREVER as an eternal tribute to our Forefathers and to our FREEDOM!
Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, & indoctrinate our children. Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials, & unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities.
...But NO, the American people are STRONG and PROUD, and they will not allow our country, and all of its values, history, and culture, to be taken... We will EXPOSE this dangerous movement, PROTECT our nation’s children, END this radical assault, and PRESERVE...
