President Trump insisted on Tuesday his views on a border wall with Mexico have NOT evolved. Pushing back on a comment made by his own Chief of Staff to lawmakers, President Trump said on Twitter, “The wall is the wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it.”
Donald Trump always keeps his promises. Whatever promises he made during the presidential campaign in 2016, he has kept the faith of the people of this great nation.
Some Democrats who met with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Wednesday said Kelly told them parts of the border did not need a wall and that Trump didn’t know that when making his campaign promise.
However, it appears the Chief of Staff misspoke. On Thursday, Trump tweeted how some of the Wall will be see-through, and the wall was never supposed to be built where there are natural barriers. He then added, “The Wall will be paid for, directly or indirectly, or through longer-term reimbursement by Mexico, which has a ridiculous $71 billion trade surplus with the US.”
Chief of Staff Kelly’s claim that President Trump’s views had evolved came as lawmakers try to reach an agreement on how to protect roughly 800,000 of young DACA immigrants from deportation, a push the White House and Republicans say they would back. However, it must be coupled with more stringent border security measures and other restrictions.
President Trump tweeted on Thursday, ” If there is no wall, there is no deal!” He stated the U.S. needs a wall to help stop the massive influx of drugs from Mexico, which is now rated as the number one most dangerous country in the world.
Chief of Staff Gen. Kelly said, “He has evolved in the way he looks at things. A campaign to governing are two different things, and this President has been very, very flexible in terms of what is within the realm of the possibility.”
It is obvious President Trump’s goal has NOT wavered. He promised to build the Wall and to protect the American people from the dangerous drugs and criminals flowing across our southern border. President Trump has repeatedly proven he’s a man of his word, and he will work hard to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN; GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE.
