Bartiromo Battles Dem. Rep Over Bringing Legal Muslim to Trump’s Speech

President Trump is set to deliver his first address to a joint session of Congress this Tuesday, and some Democratic lawmakers are planning to send a message by bringing people they claim are impacted by the president’s policies.

Democratic congressman Jim Langevin is bringing a Mulsim-American who is legally in the United States.

“I don’t understand, because the president is trying to target illegal people and criminals here in the country — the guest that your bringing is legal and American,” said Bartoromo. “The president is trying to go over people who are illegal and dangerous and who have had illegal activity. Do you not support that?”

Watch the congressman stumble through his answer above.
