Kellyanne Conway admitted during an interview that there isn’t going to be a wall across the Southern border, and the whole thing is a scam.
SMITH: So, perhaps you can use this as a message to Democrats, where is the president willing to give on these issues? Is it on the dollar amount? Is he willing to come off that 5 billion? Is it simply the language in the wording of the wall or the fence?
CONWAY: We’re having — it is a silly semantic argument because people who just want to say wall, wall, wall, wanted to be a four-letter word and not respect what Customs and Border Patrol and ICE tell us they need, which is enhancements of the border. There may be a wall in some places, there may be steel slats, there may be technological enhancements.
But always saying wall or no wall is being very disingenuous and turning the complete blind eye to what is a crisis at the border when it comes to the drugs pouring in. You know, all the fentanyl that ICE interdicted last year enough to kill every man, woman, and child in this country didn’t walk over the border by itself. The gang members here are coming in, the folks who are coming in, the criminal aliens because the Democrats voted against Kate’s law, sanctuary cities law. They voted against the removal of criminal aliens’ law. Now they are not coming to the table and border security.
I believe the president has already compromised. He was — he originally asked for $25 billion. The House is at $5.6.
There Is No Wall And Mexico Isn’t Paying For It
The government is shut down because Donald Trump promised his supporters a wall along the Southern border, but it turns out that the wall isn’t really a wall. It is a fence, a wall, and some technology. This is not what Trump promised the people who voted for him. Trump promised that he would build a big beautiful wall, and Mexico would pay for it.
Kellyanne Conway‘s Sunday show appearances were a disaster for the White House. Conway admitted that Trump feels no sympathy for the children that he killed along the border and that there are no plans for a wall like Trump promised.
The fraud has been exposed. John Kelly was right. Trump has no plans to build a wall.
