Bill O'Reilly to Newsmax TV: Border Emergency Is Justified

(Newsmax TV's "The Wayne Allyn Root Show")

The massive amount of people trying to enter the United States through Mexico and the drugs that flow across the border daily clearly justify there is a national emergency happening, Bill O'Reilly told Newsmax TV.

During his regular Wednesday appearance on "The Wayne Allyn Root Show," O'Reilly was asked about the pushback President Donald Trump is receiving from both sides of the political aisle regarding his national emergency declaration to build more barriers at the southern border.

"I think portions of the wall will get built," O'Reilly said. "I think there is a national emergency down on the southern border. Hundreds of thousands of people are trying to come in here, I think that's an emergency. Tons of narcotics, that might qualify.

"But you gotta understand something, Wayne, and everybody watching tonight: In the eyes of the Democratic Party and . . . 90 percent of the national media, Donald Trump is the biggest threat to the country. He's the national emergency.

"So, it doesn't matter what other issue is bedeviling America. It's not as important as damaging Donald Trump."

Trump's national emergency declaration allowed him to use around $6.5 billion in federal money for a border barrier. Before that, the House and Senate passed a spending bill that included just under $1.4 billion for the barrier.

Later during the interview, O'Reilly said the danger posed by some members of the House and Senate — he was referring to "far-left" Democrats — is surpassed by another group.

"I think the media's far more dangerous and hateful and corrupt than the Congress is," he said.
