Trump Responds To John Kelly: The Wall Is The Wall

Trump To John Kelly The Wall Is The WallWhite House Chief of Staff John Kelly told House Democrats and Fox News on Wednesday that President Trump wants a deal to protect DREAMers but also $20 billion to build 700 miles of “physical barrier” along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump has “evolved” in his “uniformed” immigration and border wall ideas since the campaign, Kelly said. “The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning, adding it was “never intended to be built in areas where there is natural protection” like rivers and mountains. “The Wall will be paid for, directly or indirectly … by Mexico,” he added. A lack of progress on a bipartisan DACA replacement plan is holding up spending legislation.
