HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): So, is the president handing his critics maybe something to chew on and a talking point forecasting that there would be a problem? Or is that reality?
DAGEN MCDOWELL (CO-HOST): As he often does, as he often baits the media to lose their minds over some phrase that he uses. And I'll just point people who might be upset by what the president said, I'll point people to what a Pentagon spokesman told Fox News earlier today. He reiterated the deployed U.S. forces are support troops, not combat troops. U.S. forces will not be on patrol. They will only support Border Patrol in areas like logistics, engineering, aviation, and medical support.
And for all the accusations, and the shrieking, and the screaming by the Democrats about Republicans and conservatives fearmongering about these thousands of people headed toward our border, why is it so hard for the Democrats to say -- or, rather, impossible for them to say, "Thousands of people should not be allowed to bum-rush our border"?
