Retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-AZ, on Friday, said President Trump’s assertion that Democrats “are intent on having people and drugs pour” over the border is untrue.
“I’ve served with ‘The Democrats’ for 17 years, and not one has ever been intent on ‘having people and drugs pour into our country,'” Flake said in a Tweet.

Flake was responding to a comment from Trump where he claimed Democrats are willing to risk “thousands of lives” by allowing “people and drugs” to cross the southern border of the U.S.
