President Obama told the press on Wednesday that he did not need to got to the Texas border with Mexico to see the crisis firsthand. He didn’t need a photo-op.
“You know Jeh Johnson went to the border, at my direction, five times. He went for the sixth this week… So there’s nothing that is going on there that I am not intimately aware of and briefed on. This isn’t theater. This is a problem. I’m not interested in photo ops. I’m interested in solving the problem.”
