'Maybe he should pay them': Trump roasted for using border patrol agents as props during shutdown

President Donald Trump met with border patrol agents in McAllen, Texas. The city bragged that it was one of the safest in the country and most of the crime there is related to local crime, not immigrants killing people.


McAllen doesn't have a border wall, steel or otherwise, instead, they have a series of fences along the town and some gaps where the fence is not. Some are large towering fences and others are shorter with razor-wire.

The internet had a hard time navigating what has happened to Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-TX) face and they certainly weren't pleased with government workers being used political puppets to supplement Trump's shutdown crusade.

The border patrol agents with Trump are not currently being paid to do their jobs, and the president did little to convince them the shutdown would end.

Meanwhile, in Washington, former lawyer Michael Cohen said he would testify in an open session of Congress.

Reporters also found that Trump's own campaign website still says the president will have Mexico pay for the wall. Specifically, Trump's site said Mexico would give a one-time payment of $5-10 billion.
