Tuesday's speech by President Donald Trump to the American public is being praised by a central Illinois Congressman.


Rodney Davis of Taylorville calls Trump's speech very good. More than that, he criticized Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for coming out reacting to the President's remarks.



Davis is critical of those suggesting the President is drumming up false fear by calling the border security a crisis. He believes border security has been a crisis for many years now.



Congressman Davis says border security is not just about illegal immigration but also about drug flow into the country. 


He believes the border issue is stalling a deal to end a partial government shutdown and says last year Pelosi would have taken the deal offered by the President but says she is not taking it because she is afraid of her far left constituents that ran on a platform to oppose anything Trump does.
