There has been much debate about how to fund the Trump border wall. Well, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has a new border wall funding proposal that has liberals in tears.

King's proposal for funding the border wall includes taking money from Planned Parenthood and federal food stamps. During his appearance on CNN, King had Alisyn Camerota up in arms. Watch the interview.

Per The Washington Examiner:

"And I would find half of a billion dollars of that right out of Planned Parenthood's budget," he said. "And the rest of it could come out of food stamps and the entitlements that are being spread out for people that haven't worked in three generations."

When challenged on the idea of taking food stamp funding, he said that federal program was meant to deal with malnutrition, but said many of its users are now obese.

 "Now we have a problem of obesity," he said. "And when you match up the EBT card with what the scales say on some of the folks, I think it's worth looking at. Michelle Obama looked at it, Republicans should be able to look at it too."

He also said the border wall would help create millions of new jobs, which would mean far fewer people will need federal aid.

"We will create the kind of security that would bring about 10 million new jobs in America just by enforcing immigration law," he said.

King makes quite a few excellent points. He knows the best way to make #FakeNews CNN angry. Take away the entitlements that many of their viewers have enjoyed for generations.
