Jesse Watters reacted to public statements late Thursday by President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), saying that the Democrats appear "allergic to facts."

Pelosi previously called border walls "immoral" and has stood firm against any measure that would send more than one dollar for a barrier.

"If they come to a reasonable agreement, I would support that," Trump told reporters, referring to Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

"We have a lot of alternatives" to end the shutdown, Trump added, before asserting that illegal immigration and drug trafficking constitutes a "virtual invasion" of the U.S. that can only be stopped by "a strong barrier or wall."

On "The Five," Watters said that on the issue of border security, Democrats shun facts in favor of politics.

"Their brains have been furloughed," he said.

Watters said that recent border busts by law enforcement netted hundreds of pounds of cocaine since the shutdown began.

"That's a lot of people with a lot of cocaine coming across the border," he said.
