In a Friday afternoon Rose Garden press conference, President Donald Trump made a number of remarkable claims and rambling statements, including one in which he stated that there was no signage at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Children are the biggest beneficiaries of what we want to do,” Trump said, seemingly oblivious to the fact that at least two children have died in U.S. custody as a result of his policies. “These coyotes, what they do with children, all because we have open borders, because they think they can get away with it.”
“They don’t come in through the port, where we have a lot of protection,” the president continued. “They come through these vast, open areas. You don’t even have a sign saying, ‘Mexico-U.S.’ There is no sign designating, ‘you have just entered the United States.’ Just open space.”
In fact, a Google search for “U.S. Mexico border signage” revealed a broad variety of signs, warnings, and other messages to would-be entrants. Many were bilingual.

Maddow reveals how Chinese group Falun Gong went from disrupting events to running a shadow campaign for Trump
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Tuesday detailed the remarkable journey of the group Falun Gong shifting from disrupting White House events to dominating the conversation on Facebook.
Maddow hilariously recounted the "major embarrassment" for the George W. Bush White House when a protester interrupted remarks by President of China Hu Jintao.
The protester was credentialed to cover the event for the Epoch Times, which is controlled by Falun Gong.
"Well, NBC News has a scoop out today about that group, about how that paper, the Epoch Times has transformed itself a lot in the Trump era. It’s a real revelation, this reporting from NBC News," Maddow said. "I mean, Epoch Times and its media group, they’ve made themselves into a whole new thing entirely and in a very big way."
Trump’s failed Federal Reserve nominee doesn’t even know what the interest rate was 10 years ago
On Tuesday, CNN's Chris Cuomo invited on Stephen Moore, supply-side economist and President Donald Trump's failed pick for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, to discuss the state of the administration — and Moore made a hilariously wrong remark about interest rates that suggests the country was better off without him.
"There's no greatest economy ever," said Cuomo. "You know these things ... he's doing well. He's not doing better than we've ever seen before, and you guys got the benefits of juicing the economy with this tax cut. Fair point?"
"Let me say this, I think it's a pretty darn good economy," said Moore. "I'll cite a few statistics. It's a pretty darn good one. We have the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years ... and for blacks and Hispanics and women."
