President Trump fired-back at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi over her fierce immigration opposition Thursday; saying the leading Democrat would be “begging for a wall” if not for the barrier between Tijuana and San Diego.
The Commander-in-Chief was speaking with reporters at the White House when he responded to Pelosi’s recent budget proposal that refused to finance his promised border wall.
President Trump: "If you go to Tijuana and you take down that wall you will have so many people coming into our country that Nancy Pelosi will be begging for a wall. She'll be begging for a wall."

“If you go to Tijuana and you take down that wall, you’d have so many people coming into our country that Nancy Pelosi would be begging for a wall. She’d be saying: ‘Mr. President, please, please give us a wall,’” said Trump.
