The boss has already suggested his clarification of a wall is flexible, referring to slats and other “border things.” But Democrats have done transparent they see a wall as incorrigible and ineffectual and cite other forms of limit confidence saved during already concluded on levels.
Trump had campaigned on a guarantee that Mexico would compensate for a wall. Mexico has refused. He’s now perfectionist a income from Congress.
Trump, who did not attend a discussions, spent a morning tweeting about limit security.
