Interview: President Obama Sharply Criticizes Congress


President Obama sharply criticized Congress Friday for failing to act on key issues, including the border crisis and long-term infrastructure funding.

Speaking as Congress was poised to leave Washington for a five-week break, the President told reporters, “while they’re out on vacation, I’m going to have to make some tough choices to meet the challenge.”

The President went on to call the House version of a border fix, “the most extreme and unworkable version,” and said leaders realized it wouldn’t advance past his desk.
