President Trump delivered a video message on Twitter and the White House website on border security on Thursday. After playing previous comments made by Sen. Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, and former President Barack Obama on border security the president called Democrats "absolute hypocrites."
Trump said the only reason Democrats don't want to do border security is "because of me."
"They have to put the people ahead of politics," he said.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: The Democrats are absolute hypocrites. All along they've been supporting walls and supporting fences and supporting all sorts of border security.

TRUMP: The fact is they've always supported fences and walls and partitions. But you know what? They only don’t want to do it because of me. They have to put the people ahead of politics.
We need to have the wall. We need border security. Whatever it takes to get border security I will do it. I pledged that a long time ago and I will pledge it always. We've done a really fantastic job with what we have. We can do an almost perfect job if we have the wall and proper border security and that's what we're going to do for the American people. Thank you.
