Washington: US President Donald Trump has the reaffirmed his commitment to build a wall along the Mexico border amid reports that his plan may be halted in order to avoid a government shutdown. “The wall is going to get built, by the way,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Tuesday.
“Just in case anybody has any question, the wall is going to get built and the wall is going to stop drugs, and it’s going to stop a lot of people from coming in that shouldn’t be in US and it’s going to have a huge effect on human trafficking, which is a tremendous problem in this world, a problem that nobody talks about but it’s a problem that is probably worse than any time in the history of this world,” he said.
He said that “the wall is going to get built and his administration is setting record numbers in terms of stopping people and drugs from coming in the US which has gone down by 73-74 per cent.”
“I was just with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly a little while ago and he said that we definitely, desperately need the wall.
We are going to have the wall built. I don’t know why people are talking. I watch these shows and the pundits in the morning. They don’t know what they are talking about. The wall gets built, 100 per cent,” the president said. The White House also insisted that there has been no change in the position when it comes to building the wall.
