|The big loser of the Trump Shutdown and border wall fight is VP Mike Pence. He has been revealed to be a liar and hypocrite on a world stage.|
Most likely (or maybe not because he is generally weak and fickle) during his address tonight, Trump will attempt to declare a national emergency so he can try to bypass Congress to make taypayers pay for his ridiculous and useless $5 border billion wall. A wall that he repeatedly said in the past Mexico would pay for. A big loser, other than truth and the American people, in this nonsense has to be Trump's vice president Mike Pence. Trump and his administration have made several false statements regarding the border wall. Pence has attempted to defend these lies and his stumbling hasn't been unnoticed.
Trump recently said past presidents has defended his border wall. This was revealed to be a lie. But it didn't keep Pence from attempting to defend it:
Pressed by NBC News’ Hallie Jackson in an interview Tuesday, Pence hesitated, before attempting to claim that the president meant that it had been “his impression” and that he meant “the importance of border security.”
“I know the president has said that that was his impression from previous administrations, previous presidents,” Pence said. “I know I’ve seen clips of previous presidents talking about the importance of border security, the importance of addressing the issue of illegal immigration.” None of the living former presidents has explicitly stated any support for the wall itself, contrary to Trump’s brag on Friday.
Another instance is Pence repeating the false claim that over 4,000 terrorists attempted to enter America through the Mexican border.
