Throughout the presidential election, Donald Trump repeatedly promised that he would build a border wall along the U.S. border with Mexico in order to combat illegal immigration. Pundits have been saying for a year that this is just rhetoric and that Trump will never follow through with this, which is why it came as a surprise when a document leaked yesterday confirming that a wall will indeed be built.
Infowars reported that Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who is strongly being considered for the position of head of Trump’s Department of Homeland security and is an expert on legal immigration, met with the president-elect on Sunday. There, a media photographer snapped a photo of Kobach holding a stack of papers, and when the press zoomed in on the photo, they were shocked by what they found.
The paper was entitled “Department of Homeland Security Kobach Strategic Plan For First 365 Days,” and it read that “in addition to 386 miles of existing wall” there is a further “1989 miles planned for rapid build.”
Trump had previously said that the wall would not need to be built the length of the whole 2,000 miles of the border due to natural barriers, but it now looks like the plan is to have the wall cover the entire length of the border and may even overcompensate.
Once again, Clinton supporters and the mainstream media have been completely wrong about what Trump would do. Last May, Glenn Beck confidently predicted that there was no chance Trump would actually build his wall.
“One way or another, he’s not going to build the wall. And if he does, then I’ll apologize to him on that day, but he’s not going to build that wall and Mexico is not going to pay for it. And if he does, I will apologize on that day,” said Beck.
Early in 2016, the shamelessly liberal website Crooks and Liars snarked, “Well, Trump supporters, hate to break it to you, but there is not going to be a wall,” claiming that Trump was only using the wall as a lie to build supporters.
Just yesterday, the L.A. Times reported that “Trump spent more than a year promising to build a wall,” but that he hadn’t mentioned it once since he won the election.
Now, THAT all sounds like “fake news” to me!
