UPDATE: President Trump on Friday again claimed that human traffickers taped women's mouths at the border.

"Women are tied up, they're bound, duct tape put around their faces, around their mouths, in many cases they can't even breathe," he said in the Rose Garden while discussing a deal to temporarily end the partial government shutdown. "They're put in the backs of cars or vans or trucks."
