President Donald Trump veered sharply off topic at a West Virginia roundtable on tax reform Thursday, instead painting a gruesome picture of conditions at the border.

That statement was followed by his standard immigration talking points about “weak laws,” “catch and release” policies, and sanctuary cities.
