Steve Doocy says Trump needs a wall “because he needs to start running for re-election”

Doocy: “A fence or a barrier, close enough to a wall given everything else, because he needs to start running for re-election”

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): To my point, the Democrats are saying there is no money for a wall, and that's just to rub the president's face in it. They may have money for fencing and it becomes a semantics thing. But, ultimately, I think, given what we have heard the administration say in the past and Democrats as well, Democrats have said, we need to hear from experts. Yesterday they heard from experts. People from the Border Patrol and people from [Immigration and Customs Enforcement], the committee did. And, what did they say? They said, “We need a wall. They said, ” We need $5.7 billion." So they were supporting what the president has been saying. 

I bet if he gets anything north of what he was going to get in the first round, so something in the twos or threes, he will take it. And a fence or a barrier, close enough to a wall given everything else, because he needs to start running for re-election, and he would be able to say, “Look, I closed down the government and I got a better deal for America.”
