Trump Announces How Many Guardsmen He Plans to Send to the Border

The president is ready to cooperate with the states to send the National Guard to the border, and earlier today even told the press how many troops he plans to send to the border. Let’s just say it’s a lot.

According to The Daily Caller, the president wants to send “anywhere from 2,000 to 4,000” National Guardsmen to the U.S.’s southern border.

The president released this information on the way back from a round table discussion on tax reform in West Virginia.

The president has already received criticism for “militarizing” the border, as Oregon governor tweeted out earlier today that she would not cooperate with the president on the issue of securing the border.

“As Commander of Oregon’s Guard, I’m deeply troubled by Trump’s plan to militarize our border,” Kate Brown, Oregon’s governor, said in Thursday’s tweet.
