Quote: ‘We will build a great wall along the southern border. And Mexico will pay for the wall. One hundred percent. They don’t know it yet, but they’re going to pay for it. And they’re great people and great leaders but they’re going to pay for the wall. On day one, we will begin working on an impenetrable, physical, tall, power, beautiful southern border wall. We will use the best technology, including above and below ground sensors that’s the tunnels. Remember that, above and below. Above and below ground sensors. Towers, aerial surveillance and manpower to supplement the wall, find and dislocate tunnels.’
What he really needed to say at this point was, ‘metaphorically speaking,’ because today a Department of Homeland Security official said, ‘A wall was not realistic because it would block visibility for border agents and cut through rugged terrain, as well as bodies of water and private land.’ A House Republican aide confirmed, ‘It is now proposed that double layers of fencing would be extended along parts of the roughly 2,000-mile (3,200-km) border, rather than constructing a brick-and-mortar wall.’
If anyone misunderstood him and voted for him because of, the wall, I hope they are not too disappointed.
