Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan told “Fox & Friends” Tuesday that President Trump demanded “better results” at the southern border during a recent meeting to discuss the ongoing migration crisis.

“‘Deliver more. The situation is extreme. Fix it,’” Shanahan said Trump told his top cops, adding: “That’s why we’re here. We understand that there’s never been a lack of commitment to fixing it. It’s just with these trends and the increases, it’s getting worse.”

McAleenan agreed with Shanahan, comparing the current situation at the border to the situation five years ago under the Obama administration.

“This crisis is much bigger than what we faced back then, and we need Congress’ help,” McAleenan said.
