Trump reportedly requested tanks for Fourth of July address – live

Donald Trump launched into a tirade against his home state this morning in a series of tweets, and there’s a lot to unpack.

(10-15 is Border Patrol code for “aliens in custody.”) The group described itself, in an online introduction, as a forum for “funny” and “serious” discussion about work with the patrol. “Remember you are never alone in this family,” the introduction said.
