WATCH LIVE: AMY CONEY BARRETT SWORN IN AT WHITE HOUSE

Fox News Politics Editor: ‘Huge Concession’ For Trump to Admit Democrats Want Border Security

Fox News politics editor Chris Stirewalt said President Donald Trump made a “huge concession” in his Rose Garden speech on Friday.

Trump, who held a press conference from the White House Friday after what he called a “productive meeting” on the shutdown with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, said Democrats want to work with him on border security.

“As the president just pointed out, which is a first, which we have not heard from him before, [Democrats] also want border security,” Stirewalt said. “This is a huge concession for Trump to make, for him to admit. He spent all of the 2018 cycle at rallies saying Democrats want open borders, that’s all they want… they want drugs they want crime.”

Fox News anchor stopped Stirewalt there to go back to Trump’s presser, as the president began taking questions from reporters.
