Trump says Pelosi will be ‘begging’ for a border wall

January 31, 2019

President Trump said Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will end up clamoring for a border wall to stop thousands of migrants headed to the U.S. in caravans from Central America.

“Nancy Pelosi will be begging for a wall,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House.

Minutes earlier, Mrs. Pelosi vowed at the Capitol that Democrats won’t approve money for a wall as part of negotiations on border security.

She suggested there might be money available for a so-called “Normandy” fence along the southern border.
