Fox News host Brian Kilmeade suggested this week that President Donald Trump’s proposed wall on the Mexico border could “stop the opioid crisis.”
“President Trump has made ending this epidemic a key issue in this administration, starting with the building of a border wall,” Kilmeade announced during segment on Wednesday.
Turning to conservative reporter Printus LeBlanc, the Fox News host asked: “What do you think the wall would do to stop this opioid crisis. Of course, there’s no quick fix. But this would fix a lot.”
LeBlanc admitted that the wall could not stop all opioids from entering the country.
“But what this does is stem the flow of opioids,” he explained.
“If you look at the numbers, it just makes sense to build the wall,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt concluded.
