President Donald Trump on Thursday held a quick media availability in the White House press briefing to talk about the border wall and Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
"I just appreciate them being here. Let's go out and see the press. You can tell them about the importance of the wall. They basically said, and I think I can take the word basically out, 'Without a wall you can not have border security.' Without a very strong form of barrier, call it what you will, but without a wall you can't have border security it won't work," Trump said.
Trump also congratulated Rep. Nancy Pelosi for becoming Speaker of the House.
"I think it will be a little bit different than a lot of people are thinking, so I congratulate Nancy. Tremendous, tremendous achievement," the president said.
