TRUMP: ‘Over 400 Miles of Wall’ Will Be Completed By End of 2020
President Donald Trump revealed this morning that his administration will have built more than 400 miles of border wall along the southern border by the end of 2020, and said that the entire wall will be finished soon after.
While being interviewed by phone on Fox News’ morning show “Fox & Friends”, President Trump revealed that his administration will have completed more than 400 miles of border wall by the end of 2020, despite tremendous opposition from Democrats and obstructionists.
“So the wall is going up, it’s going up rapidly, we’re going to have over 400 miles of wall built by the end of next year,” said President Trump. “Tbe wall is very important. It’s hard to breach it, it’s high, it’s strong, it’s powerful, and it’s going up at a much lower cost than the wall that was planned prior to me getting there.”
President Trump also remarked on the state of the previous border barrier the Obama and Bush administrations were building prior to his election.
“You have to see what they built, it’s a disgrace,” said the president. “We’re actually fixing it and in some cases we have to take down fairly new wall because it was so bad.”
He continued, “We’re going to have over 400 miles of wall built, and that’s going to be in the most important areas, and we’re going to have all of it built before you know.”
The president then noted that all of this progress has been despite constant legal threats and political obstruction from Democrats.
“This is despite tremendous obstacles that have been put in front of us by the Democrats, you have no idea,” he went on, “We just won the lawsuit on the wall, we won a big lawsuit on the wall, brought by Nancy Pelosi.”
President Trump continued, lambasting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “And maybe that’s criminal, that she’s allowing drug dealers and gang members into our country, maybe that’s criminal when you talk about it, because what’s happening on the border, we’re getting it straightened out.”
The president then lamented that Democrats have refused to work with the Trump administration on any form of border security, telling the interviewers that Congress could “solve the asylum problem and the loopholes in 15 minutes.”
