On Tuesday, President Donald Trump addressed members of the National Federation of Independent Businesses, detailing his achievements while in office and touching on the issues at the United States-Mexico border.
Trump once again referenced gang members belonging to MS-13 and the crimes they commit:

After Trump finished his speech, he began to walk towards the left side of the stage, but then stopped and turned around. He made his way over to the American flag on the other side of the stage and hugged it.

“Together, there is nothing Americans can’t do because we are one people and one family saluting one great American flag,” Fox News reported he told the audience.
