President Donald Trump said Wednesday he was willing to deploy up to 15,000 troops to protect the Southern border.
“We’ll do up to anywhere between ten and 15,000 military personnel, on top of border patrol, ICE, and everybody else at the border,” Trump said. “Nobody is coming in.”
The president made his remarks to reporters as he left the White House for a campaign rally in Florida. The Pentagon announced Monday their plan to deploy 5,200 soldiers to the border.
