White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney laid down some major smack talk for Democrats on Sunday, telling Â Bill Hemmer on â€œFox News Sundayâ€ that the Mexican government has done far more to enhance U.S. border security than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her Democrat Party.
â€œIn the last week, Mexico really has stepped it up for the very first time,â€ Mulvaney claimed. â€œTheyâ€™re preventing people from coming in on their own southern border down towards Guatemala and Honduras and theyâ€™re also accepting more of the folks that cross into the United States back into Mexico.
“In fact â€” and I know itâ€™s hard to imagine â€” but again, Nancy Pelosi runs the Democrats in Congress. Mexico has done more in the last week to help our illegal immigration crisis than Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in the House,” he added.
The chief of staff noted that maintaining border security and enforcing all immigration laws remains POTUS Donald Trump’s “number one” concern. He added that POTUS is the one primarily responsible for protecting the country from foreign threats.
â€œThis is his number one priority. Keep in mind, dealing with health care is nice, dealing with the economy is nice,â€ he said.
â€œThe presidentâ€™s first responsibility is to defend the integrity and safety of the nation. And we really do believe â€” and I think, again, most folks are starting to agree with us now â€” that the situation at the border is a national security crisis,” he added.

Mulvaney wasn’t done, either. He also said that try as they will, Democrats willÂ never get to see the president’s tax returns.
“Thatâ€™s an issue that was already litigated during the election,â€ he said. â€œVoters knew the president could have given his tax returns. They knew that he didnâ€™t and they elected him anyway.”
Mentioning Democrats’ demands for special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which AG William Barr is currently redacting, no doubt, Mulvaney said the Donkey Party will continue picking away at POTUS no matter what information he provides about his taxes.
â€œAnd after that, weâ€™ll be on something else,â€ Mulvaney said. â€œLetâ€™s face it. The Democrat partyâ€™s infested with what we call â€˜Trump derangement syndrome.â€™ They still cannot accept the fact that he won the election and theyâ€™ll do anything they can to either undo that or prevent that from happening again.â€
