Promises he made about the border wall and deporting certain illegal immigrants redefined the election. Now that he’s elected, he’s filling in more details.
It’s a centerpiece of his campaign. The one people kept saying ‘couldn’t be done’. His plan to secure the border. Putting the brakes on illegal immigration.
He was going to build that ‘Big Beautiful Wall’.
Now the campaigning is over. What next?
President-elect Donald Trump has said he plans to deport two to three million undocumented immigrants with criminal records from the country immediately – and has insisted that he will build his wall.
In his first extensive interview since he won the White House, Trump is reassuring his supporters that he will deport or incarcerate up to three million ‘gang members’ and ‘drug dealers.’
In an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes that airs on Sunday evening – his first since winning the election – Trump insisted that he will build the wall along the US-Mexico border that was a vital part of his presidential campaign.
…when asked if he does plan to build the wall, Trump told 60 Minutes: ‘Yes.’
However, Trump stipulated that the wall – instead of being ‘big and beautiful’ like he repeatedly vowed – could end up being part-wall and ‘some fencing.’
‘For certain areas I would, but certain areas, a wall is more appropriate,’ he said.
‘I’m very good at this, it’s called construction.’ —DailyMail
After a more than a decade of political obstruction, won’t it be good to see the wall finally completed?
