New comments from President Trump on voter fraud, and allegations of rapists crossing the border, after literally throwing his script in the air.
President Trump went off script… Renewing claims about voter fraud and criminals crossing the border. “Women are raped at levels that nobody has ever seen before.

It’s like it’s a war,” said the President.
President Trump plans to send up to 4000 National Guard troops to the border with many staying until his wall is built. Their mission: unclear. “We do not want to militarize the border. The only red lines here, generally speaking without a Presidential declaration of emergency, they’re not allowed to detain people or collect evidence,” said General Barry McCaffrey, U.S. Army, Retired
And the president is defending EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. “I think that Scott has done a fantastic job. He’s a fantastic person,” said President Trump
