Carter Page: Horowitz report will only tell 'part of the story'
Trump says he will meet with Schumer 'ASAP' after border visit
President Trump on Sunday tweeted he will set up a meeting with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) "ASAP" after the senator visited the U.S.-Mexico border.
"Senator Chuck Schumer has finally gone to the Southern Border with some Democrat Senators. This is a GREAT thing! Nearby, he missed a large group of Illegal Immigrants trying to enter the USA illegally. They wildly rushed Border Patrol. Some Agents were badly injured," Trump tweeted.
"Based on the comments made by Senator Schumer, he must have seen how dangerous & bad for our Country the Border is. It is not a 'manufactured crisis,' as the Fake News Media & their Democrat partners tried to portray. He said he wants to meet. I will set up a meeting ASAP!"
Schumer is leading a group of about a dozen Senate Democrats on a visit to the border to see detention facilities.
Several House Democrats recently went on a tour of facilities and came back sharing details of inhumane and unsanitary conditions.
Vice President Pence later led a congressional delegation to the border and shared a different experience, thanking border officials for their "compassionate work."
