Video Transcript

HARRIS FAULKNER: Because it's just happened now and I want to double check this with our producers. The DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has resigned. Mr President--

DONALD TRUMP: Well, I'm not surprised. Good-- that's a big victory for our country.

HARRIS FAULKNER: Hold on. Let me-- let-- let me stop. Let me stop. Let me listen to my team one more time. Forgive me. Forgive me. That has not happened. But-- and I apologize--

DONALD TRUMP: OK.

HARRIS FAULKNER: Listening to the team and you.

DONALD TRUMP: Cross out that victory.

HARRIS FAULKNER: Right-- well-- and I want to tell everybody, you issued a statement last night and you called for that, though. And you're just talking about him just to clarify is somebody who you feel is not competent to handle what's going on. So let me clean up on aisle seven with my error. He has not resigned and let me move right to what you are calling for and others too. For him to move out of the way and possibly get somebody who can do the job. Your thoughts.
