Speaking at the Law Enforcement Conference, Donald Trump says the border wall is already being built.
“The wall is very very, on its way, it’s happening as we speak, we are building as we speak, in the most desperately needed areas. And it’s a big wall, a strong wall, it’s a wall where people aren’t going through very easily,” Trump said to a room full of Police Chiefs and County Sheriffs.
“You’re going to have to be in extremely good shape to get over this one, they would be able to climb Mount Everest a lot easier I think.”
Trump continues to tell his supporters the false claim that the wall along the southern border is already being built.
The President is expected to sign a border wall agreement on Thursday that will give him $1.3 billion in funding for 55 miles of bollard fencing and repairs.
Trump asked for $5.7 billion for his border wall during the last government shutdown which the majority of voters blame him for.
