President Donald Trump joked about the Democratic Party’s messaging on Tuesday, quipping that he started to dislike himself after watching so many negative ads against him.

“Hundreds of millions of dollars of negative ads. Nobody’s ever been hit like that. I used to go home, I started disliking myself,” Trump said during remarks at the National Federation of Independent Businesses 75th Anniversary Celebration.

Trump made the remarks while speaking about his push to get Democrats to support legislation to change the immigration system.

The Trump administration has implemented a zero-tolerance policy toward illegal border crossings, charging all individuals who cross the border illegally with unlawful entry. People who claim to seek asylum are also charged with unlawful entry and are taken into custody until their case is processed.

Federal law prevents children from being held in the same detention facility as those charged with unlawful entry, causing border patrol agents to separate children from their families. The change in policy has triggered bipartisan backlash.

“We need Democrats’ support. They don’t want to give it because Democrats love open borders,” Trump said.

Trump added that Democrats think those crossing the border could be future voters for their party.
