Trump proves he is a parrot

Dana Milbank on

Trump agreed with this, too. "And the lottery," he added, tossing in another conservative priority about making immigration merit-based.

Back and forth Trump bounced.

One moment he was saying "without the wall, we cannot have border security." The next he was assuring Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, that "there are large areas where you don't need a wall."

Trump called it a success. "We're all very much on a similar page," he concluded.

Perhaps he didn't care that, in his reflexive echoing of each speaker, he had contradicted himself repeatedly. More likely he didn't even notice.
