    I've answered that before. Trump made a big deal out of the wall and it's an easy political victory for the Democrats to earn and deny Trump.

    The bills that were passed into law to authorize the building of the fencing - were they authorizing a full 2k mile border fence, or did they only authorize specific sections?

    So, you acknowledge that they changed position because Trump holds the same view?

    A distinction with out a difference.
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.
