Jeanine Pirro Issues Direct Plea to Trump to Keep Up Border Wall Fight: ‘This is Your Moment in History’

On Saturday night, Judge Jeanine Pirro used her Fox News show to directly address the President of the United States and encourage him to stay strong in his fight for a border wall.

She began:

“I would like to direct my open to the president of the United States. Mr. President, I understand the pressure that you are under from every side. But the wall at our southern border is a promise that you made, ran on, got elected on and must keep. But more than that, it is your legacy. And you cannot allow them to force you to compromise. So here we are, days before the Christmas holiday, and you are facing the most important issues that Americans elected you to confront. Your promise to build the wall. Now, there has never been a president more dedicated to fulfilling a campaign promise than you. Unlike just about every other president in recent memory, you say what you mean and you mean what you say. That is why your base is so loyal to you and continues to grow. You have done what no other president that has had the fortitude to do. The wall is no different. And you must fulfill this fundamental promise to the American people. You cannot buckle. “

Then, after a total of 8-minutes of bolstering Trump’s resolve, she concluded, “I am pleading with you on behalf of the American people who believe with every fiber of their being that if anyone can get it done, you are the one who can and will. This is your moment in history. Just do it. Thank you, Mr.President.”

Pirro’s decision to direct her opening statement to Trump is especially noteworthy because conservative pundits — namely Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh —  have been called out for influencing Trump to strengthen his resolve on the wall and change course, ultimately leading to the shutdown impasse.
