  1. Mr. Trump what you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent speech were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  2. NEWS FLASH: We do NOT need any of the News Media OR the politicians to tell us what to think. Anybody that needs the obvious explained to them should not be able to vote. The Democrats are protecting the illegal aliens because they know that is where their voter base is, without the illegals that puts a HUGE dent in their voter roles. Illegal is illegal and allowing illegals to stay here when they have no intention of becoming citizens needs to stop. The ones that do not want to become citizens here and assimilate need to go back to their original country.

  3. As far as the wall goes, i dont get why they dont use the billions of dollars in seized cartel money that is confiscated every year to fund the wall, or put a tax on the billions of dollars that is sent back to mexico by migrant workers via western union/moneygram etc, both options could be spun as mexico paying for the wall? But anyway-Everyone knows these rich fuckers Dems and Repubs alike all have 12 foot stone walls around their gated neighborhoods with armed security guards stationed at the entrance/exit checking id's. But whats good for them isnt good enough for the rest of us average working people- who pay their salaries i might add.

  4. The greatest president in history simply calls this…"fake News'. Psyc 101's learned how to get people enraged about something…anything…so they tune is to these fake people. More dislikes than likes. YouTube needs to pull this down. Send a message to CBS. People who work, love Trump.

  5. he sounds and looks like he's going to croak at any moment, it's pretty sad that he's making his "fellow americans" suffer because they are not getting paid now, while he keeps making millions. I thought he promised he would make the Mexicans pay for it, so why should American working people pay for it. If he wants it let him pay it himself, he's got the cash. Not every immigrant is a criminal, and not every American is a saint, he blows everything out of proportion. I feel for all Americans who suffer from the current blackmail attemps from that guy.

  6. Trump for 2nd term, we need the wall, democrat love vote counts only, Nancy pelosi time to go and retire, she's hurting this country together all her fellows.

  7. Have you not noticed all the overdoses and crumbling Families from this drug epidemic. 90% of drugs come from Mexico. Build a wall.
    Trump 2020

  8. Our American people first.
    Shut the gate of our house and do not tell me I am a racist. We the people are not going to be shamed into giving our country away. We built this country not the United Nations.
    Trump 2020

  9. The LOWLIFE is HOLDING CITIZENS HOSTAGE with a shutdown in his impulsive, greedy refusal. Playing with government toys.

  10. Here's an idea…. lower politicians pay way down! Because their pockets run way deep. With that we can build the wall and then put that money back into the nation not the politicians pockets

  11. Democrats seem to think we don't have enough crime and welfare. They want to open borders without any background checks or qualifications.

  12. President-Elect Donald Trump’s daughter – Tiffany Trump, was found in enough sticky when was caught at a nightclub smoking marijuana strain with her friends. For this, she got from her fan and critics a trending name #TwistedTiff

  13. The USA is a bright beacon drawing thousands to the border. These moths to the flame are being picked off by rapists and murderers as they travel towards the light. It is time to draw the curtain.

  14. what he wants is to do the job he was put in office to do. WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES told him to build the wall!

  15. Why don’t trump use some of his money to build this “wall” since HE wants it so bad…Why take money from people who’s are already struggling? No matter if a wall is built their is ways around everything. It’s so much he can do with billions of dollars besides this wall. He’s for AMERICA yet making us suffer???? Donald Trump is Evil.

  16. How about the billions of dollars it costs to help illegal aliens a year? It costs tax payers approximately $113 billion dollars a year JUST IN HEALTHCARE! Now factor in housing costs, food costs and other… we're talking BILLIONS. Perhaps double this number. And the amount of illegals still coming here is astounding. Check out the Forbes article!

    -Illegal immigration costs u.s. taxpayers about $113 billion a year at the federal, state and

    local level. The bulk of the costs — some $84 billion — are absorbed by state and local

    governments.

    The annual outlay that illegal aliens cost u.s. taxpayers is an annual amount per native-

    headed household of nearly $1,000 after accounting for estimated tax collections. The fiscal

    impact per household varies considerably because the greatest share of the burden falls on

    state and local taxpayers whose burden depends on the size of the illegal alien population in

    that locality

    Education for the children of illegal aliens constitutes the single largest cost to taxpayers, at

    an annual price tag of nearly $52 billion. Nearly all of those costs are absorbed by state and

    local governments.

    At the federal level, about one-third of outlays are matched by tax collections from illegal

    aliens. At the state and local level, an average of less than 5 percent of the public costs

    associated with illegal immigration is recouped through taxes collected from illegal aliens.

    n most illegal aliens do not pay income taxes. Among those who do, much of the revenues

    collected are refunded to the illegal aliens when they file tax returns. Many are also claiming

    tax credits resulting in payments from the u.s. treasury.

  17. a lot of the gov workers are worthless. this entity should have a shakedown. I know a woman that makes 50K+ and does nothing. when some of these bums go to consulates to other countries just go to expensive parties. waste waste waste. Mr.Trump keep the gloves on. We want you back in 2020. NWO New World Order…..believe it.

  18. I love how there are so many more people for the wall in the comments than there are against it, despite the left leanings of the channel.

  19. Trump is on drugs first. I had someone tell me that was on that show of his. Let me tell you about the FBI aren't getting it off rhe streets they're killing ppl who are needing real medicine.b y proxy!! There are a lot of ppl commiting suicide because the doctors aren't helping them vets, dieases, children, the elderly. Not the drug dealers! @CNN you needed to investigate this!Truely this is a violation of ppls rights to medication. But the families who think he doing anything for them they're sadly mistaken. Because the FBI are leaving they drug dealers out. This is genocide on the vulenerable. They arrest doctors take all of thier assets and then they can't get a lawyer. Hospitals are in short supply. What If you get in a accident of someone in your family. No medicine!!!it is a federal violation.

  20. If the idea of the wall/fence/barrier is abhorrent and not required, why isn't any of the existing barrier(s) removed?

  21. "I will authorize badly needed funding for better border fences and security which will help stem the tide of illegal immigration" Senator Obama 2006. Hillary also voted in favor of the 1.4billion dollar bill. Funny how it changes because they lost in 2016

  22. For all those victims of the Trump shutdown. No free food and and shelter at mar a lago Trump house golf course or Golden Trump tower. That's a Trump clan only privilege.

  23. "thousands of illegal immigrants cross our southern boarder daily we dont have the room for them." then he says millions enter the country legally but we have the room for them?

  24. First of all , trunp is too fkn stupid to have written this speech , second , I would like to see thousands more border guards who would make their home along the border and contribute to the local economies in those areas , there are estimates this wall would cost upwards to 70 Billions , with no return for the local economies ! NO FKN KICKBACKS FOR CRIMINAL TRUMP FROM HIS CONTRACTOR BUDDIES !

  25. Where are Democrats against border security ? All you asshols listen to is the trash republican propaganda , like I said where are Democrats against border security ?

  26. fact is Democrats gave power to the cartels by not securing your boarders. you guys are zombies and literally look like them. your out of touch with the true value of protecting your own.

    Look what Democrats have done to my country Canada. We now have to let in a lil migrants and pay for everything from welfare to food to transportation.

    Dont be fooled by the privileged who live in mansions with high guarding walls and security around their houses.

  27. Some people across the world will be living in poverty because of Donald Trump wanting to build a wall a selfish act on his part & for the people that agree with his decision May God be with us all this goes beyond immigrant

    issues and drug issues when you shutting down the federal government because now you have people that been sitting behind bars for unpaid child support now the government can't get back the money from people that was on public assistance because of the shutdown now people are going to be without jobbs no source of income you're taking away benefits Healthcare from some of the family that are on public assistance so now this goes beyond just building a wall

  28. Never seen an "Oval Office Address" used to make money like this.
    Trump just can't stop scamming – its in his blood.

  29. immigrants have made their way into our government, they are trying to weaken our country, taking us away from our morals and laws.

  30. immigrants stop using house negros to talk for black Americans, this is sad they really went down south to find him too. lol

  31. ok guys for real what im about to show you is crazy ; if youre at work you might be better to wait to be home to watch this . I laugh out loud and hour lol https://newstrends.co/new-donald-trump-dank-meme-vine-compilation-best-donald-trump-memes-2016/

  32. “Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress.”

    Senator Chuck Schumer, 2009

    “We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked”

    Barack Obama, 2005

    “I voted numerous times… to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.”

    Hillary Clinton, 2008

    I checked out the Democratic stance on a range of questions. Do you want a wall? "No, because…" 0% "No, it's expensive 10%", "No." 91%. No, and I don't need a reason to say no it's just no and you can't me change my mind because I'm a Democrat is the TOP answer in national polls. No, I'm a bloody-minded idiot. No, I don't even need a reason to say why I think no. No, what do I need to talk to the country for? I'm a Democrat. And best of all I will leave the final responses to these 3 highly-qualified individuals to tell you what we should do about a border wall.

    The president can say something in the morning and something else in the afternoon…. oh, please…

  33. President Trump imagine if it was your child that will be sitting with no food or your family waiting on income tax ,or worried about what your kids are going to eat at school .We understand the need to do something about boarder security but don't bankrupt this country to fix the problem.Now we have a new problem.

  34. Anyone who says he’s keeping his promises, is clearly delusional. He promised to make Mexico pay for the wall not raise the taxes of citizens

  35. Remember the "caravan" trump told you about?! How 1000s of mexicans  were heading to Amarica?! And most of them were murderers & rapists!!?  How is it that they just disapeared? Once yrump took office?! Sheep!!!

  36. The wall is Trump change and chump change for the US. Why would Nancy Pelosy torture American federal workers for such a small amount of money. Our budget is trillions the wall is so cheap compared to welfare costs. I don't understand why Nancy and Schumer. Building the wall is cheap. Really cheap cost.

  37. Oh ok but Obama shutting down the government for 16 days and Clinton shutting down the government for 21 days is ok

  38. EL GOBIERNO DE USA ASESINA FAMILIAS. ENTERAS ALREDEDOR DEL MUNDO ., SIN CONTAR LOS MILES DE MUERTOS OCACIONADOS POR LAS BOMBAS LANZADAS EN JAPON SI QUEREMOS VER LA MALDAD MIREMOS LA REALIDAD .

  39. ESTA BIEN QUE TRUMP EDIFIQUE EL MURO MEXICO PERMITIRA LA COSNTRUCCION DE UNA BASE NAVAL Y AEREA RUSA EN EL PACIFICO Y UNA

  40. It’s amazing that in 2008 the government spent $4.7 trillion dollars and Nancy and Chuck are so concerned about $5B. I blame Trump, Nancy and Chuck for this issue. They could care less about the American people and are more interested in personal attacks and their own agendas. Give the guy some money towards a wall in good faith and serve us Americans. This is embarrassing and we should be ashamed of all politicians involved.

  41. The analogy of the border wall being equivalent to a locked door on a home is just absurd. Besides, for so long conservatives have been yelling for limited gov't interference in their lives and the one time they need to prove their side of the argument, where do they turn to? Using this analogy of locked doors on your homes to get a wall that the child in charge of this corrupt democracy wants. Damn liars and hypocrites!

  42. basic liberal philosophy is flawed. if a AR kills people, ban all Assault Rifles because even one death is too many. Same should imply for migrants then, If one migrant kills somebody then we must ban them all. I'm just pointing out their hypocrisy here. The old saying goes, "if it's good for the goose it's good for the gander" aye? oh yeahh one more thing… #FUCKCBS!!!

  43. 40:06 instant discredit to a national crisis that has been fought for on both sides up until our President decided to do anything about it. Disgusting

  44. American voters are seeing how dysfunctional congress has become by POTUS giving the House and Senate a chance to collaborate on a common sense solution for national security.
    The government website should publish residence photos and addresses of every member of congress opposing border wall funding so the public can see the hypocrisy of these people in the walls they have securing the borders of their property, their privacy and personal security. Stage protests at every address and demand they remove their walls as an example of their beliefs and propaganda narrative that a wall is not needed. POTUS residence address, the White House, is known to the world. Let the hypocritical congress members be subject to the same openness and transparency about where they live since they are public servants. Seizing El Chapo’s assets alone would pay for the wall fulfilling Trump’s plan to let Mexico pay for the wall.

    Hopefully El Chapo will identify his US Deep State CIA contacts so Trumps admin’s can indict the embedded alphabet agency operatives for numerous felony violations including treason against the people of the United States. What POTUS were in office supporting El Chapo? GHWB, Clinton, GWB, Obama? YEP!

  45. All you Liberal sheep as usual believe everything the left-wing fake media reports. Protecting the American people is the number one responsibility of our government. It is funny that most Democrats, including Pelosi and Schumer were for a border barrier before they were against it. It was only after Trump was elected that they changed their minds because they hate Trump. Such hypocrites, only concerned about holding onto power, and for open borders instead of doing what is right. Scumbags indeed, no question about that. Trump is right and the Dems are wrong, plain and simple. It is 100% the Democrats fault for the shutdown because they will not compromise. The Dems can't stand it that we have a President for the first time in history that will stand his ground to do right by the American people, regardless of the negative news reporting and the Dems grandstanding.

  46. Hey Chuck if there's no excuse for hurting millions of Americans for only a "policy difference" ( Protecting legal Americans should be your only policy CHUCK) then shouldn't you just give Trump his wall funding? That argument works both ways Chuck, you idiot. And it shouldn't be that hard seeing as YOU and Nancy have voted for border funding in the past.

  47. CBSN , your journalists look like just born from yesterday ant yet is talking about American politic like a baby talk. Employ a bit matured with experienced Adults.
