    Trump: No Need For A Full Border Wall

    LOL....

    President Trump, who made the building of a wall along the border with Mexico a central promise of his campaign, significantly scaled back the pledge Thursday."You don't need 2,000 miles of wall because you have a lot of natural barriers," Trump said to reporters on Air Force One during his flight to Paris. "You have mountains. You have some rivers that are violent and vicious. You have some areas that are so far away that you don't really have people crossing. So you don't need that." "You'll need anywhere from 700 to 900 miles," he said.

    About 600 miles of the southern border already are protected by walls, fences or other barriers. It was unclear from Trump's remarks whether the figure he cited referred to new border protections or included those already in existence, but he appeared to suggest that fixing current border fences would count against the total he had in mind.

    Trump also offered a very different description of the border barrier than he portrayed in campaign rallies, where he would sometimes talk about a wall 30 feet high. His new description closely resembles the border fencing built under Presidents George W. Bush and Obama

    No need for full border wall, Trump says - LA Times

    Who saw this coming? Anyone with half a brain. Pretty sure this is going to really disappoint his base, who voted for him in large part due to the "Wall" and Trade.

    The building contractors who spent weeks putting together plans, diagrams, and related documents to submit bids aren't gonna be happy.

    Oh good grief - part of what he told reporters about the "Wall"



    Yeah, drugs don't get thrown over the fence - they are smuggled through tunnels.

    At least one Trump hater said there would be no wall.

    Not any.

    I suppose that person will now admit that she was wrong, eh?

    Here is the batshit craziest part of his Air Force One chat.



    (The president didn't actually say "cray". That was a typo in the transcript. Although he might as well have.)

    So let me get this straight: the wall needs holes in it because drug runners are launching 60 pound bags of drugs that could hit innocent people who are just hanging around on the other side of the wall.
    That seems counter productive on the part of the drug runner.
