Trump says he'll have to 'call up more military' at border

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would have to mobilize more of the military at the U.S. border with Mexico after listening to stories about migrants crossing the border from people attending a Republican fundraiser.

"I'm going to have to call up more military," Trump said.

The president said some of the people crossing the border were ending up dead from the journey on Americans' ranches.

He interrupted his discussion with Republican donors to bring in reporters to listen to the stories about the border.
