President Trump, the Wall is Going to Get Built in My 1st Term
President Donald Trump declared Tuesday that “the wall’s going to get built” in his 1st term despite news reports that he had changed his mind on his major campaign promise over budget issues.
“The wall is very, very important,” President Trump said after signing an executive order directing Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue to ease regulations for farmers.
“In your first term?” a reporter asked.
“Well, it’s certainly — yeah,” the president responded. “Sure. Got plenty of time.”
President Trump earlier Tuesday ripped “fake” news reports on Twitter saying that he was softening his position on the Wall along the border with Mexico as Congress agrees on a spending bill for the rest of the current fiscal year.
He Tweeted: Don’t let the fake media tell you that I have changed my position on the WALL. It will get built and help stop drugs, human trafficking etc.
President Trump said at the White House, “The wall is going to get built, folks. The wall’s going to get built — and it’s going to stop drugs and a lot of people from coming in that should not be here. It’s going to have a tremendous effect on human trafficking.”
“We’re already preparing,” the President said. “We’re doing plans.
“We’re doing specifications. We’re doing a lot of work on the wall.”
