WATCH: Democrat Comes Out FOR Trump’s Border Wall On CNN, Leaves Chris Cuomo Stupefied!
Chris Cuomo never bargained for this. With the Congress alarmingly starting to turn President Trump’s way, he had settled down for a nice distracting conversation with a good old blue-collar Democrat, Senator Joe Manchin out of West Virginia.
Perfect, right? Ignore the failed shutdown, talk about the workin’ man, and throw in some soft-balls for Trump bashing.
Until Manchin told Cuomo that he WANTS Trump’s border wall.
Worth a click to see the look on the CNN anchor’s face:
Notice how Cuomo is indignant about Trump potentially gaining in popularity, while Manchin just wants to pass a bill to help Americans?
From Daily Caller:
Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin thinks there is a dire need for increased border security to deal with illegal immigration, and said President Donald Trump is sympathetic to dealing with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival recipients, Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day.”
“We have to have border security,” Manchin said. “We know that. So if the president calls it a border wall, we do need a wall. We need to repair some wall. We need build some new wall. We need other technologies too.”
Host Chirs Cuomo said it would be a hard pill for Democrats to swallow because Trump would rub it in their face, but Manchin shrugged it off and said it doesn’t matter so long as it gets done.
