The Left is at it again.
They hate the idea of a border wall so much that they will do anything to convince you that President Donald Trump is lying to you about it even if it means ‘splitting hairs’ to do so.
Let me explain.
The Daily Mail reported last week that the Trump administration’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency admitted that Trump “has not built any walls to protect previously unbarricaded sections of America’s southern border.”
They claim that the first new wall project, where no barrier currently exists is not scheduled to begin until April.
Trump has claimed in the past that ‘[w]e have already built large new sections’ of the border wall.
It would appear that unnecessary distinctions are being made in an attempt to make it seem that Trump has not been truthful to the American public.
A senior Trump administration official said that “building walls where there were gaps or only small or ineffective non-wall barriers before is, by definition, building new walls.”
The same CBP official who spoke to The Daily Mail released a statement after the article came out in which he stated:
“CBP has built and continues to build new border wall along the Southwest border. To date, CBP has built 38 miles of new border wall system in San Diego and Calexico, California, Santa Teresa, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas.”
Frankly, most Americans don’t care whether the wall is being replaced, newly built or a discussion is occurring about the next project needed to secure the southern border.
So, the next time you read an article from the Left, make sure you check other sources for the truth, first.
