(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that President Donald Trump’s unwillingness to sign legislation funding the 25 percent of the government that is now currently unfunded if the Democrat-controlled House will not agree to fund construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border is a “temper tantrum.”

Pelosi said Democrats have “a better idea about how to secure the border.”

“It’s again, a temper tantrum by the president,” Pelosi said.

 

“I’m a mother of five, grandmother of nine, I know a temper tantrum when I see one,” she said.

“It’s most unfortunate,” she said. “Because people’s services, are being withheld and that’s not right for the American people and we have a better idea about how to secure our border. To do so with technology and infrastructure that is smart, and does the job.”

Here is an excerpt from Pelosi’s remarks to the press:

“It’s again, a temper tantrum by the President. I’m a mother of five, grandmother of nine, I know a temper tantrum when I see one. It’s most unfortunate. Because people’s services, are being withheld and that’s not right for the American people and we have a better idea about how to secure our border. To do so with technology and infrastructure that is smart, and does the job.

“Building infrastructure where 90 percent of the drugs come in, the President talked about that, most of the people come in seeking asylum, let’s have more personnel there. More infrastructure, more road repair to facilitate all of that we have the technology. Put the resources there for the technology, take maybe $400 million to $500 million to scan cars coming in for drugs and other contraband guns. Other problematic items that might be in those cars that can be detected electronically. And use innovation to protect our border in so many other ways.

“This is smart.”
