    Donald Trump Corrects John Kelly: ‘The Wall Is the Wall, It Has Never Changed or Evol

    Donald Trump Corrects John Kelly: ‘The Wall Is the Wall, It Has Never Changed or Evolved’





    by CHARLIE SPIERING18 Jan 2018




    President Donald Trump corrected his Chief of Staff John Kelly after he said that the president had “evolved” on the wall.



    “There’s been an evolutionary process that this president has gone through,” Kelly said in an interview with Fox News host Bret Baier, pointing out that Trump had “very definitely changed his attitude” towards DACA recipients and the wall.




    But Trump pushed back on Twitter against the suggestion that he had evolved on the wall.


    “The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it,” Trump said.




    He explained that parts of the wall would be “see-through” and that it was never meant to stretch across the whole 2,000-mile border where there were already natural barriers.


    Kelly said that he and border experts told Trump that 800 miles of wall would “suffice” which included 600 miles of existing fencing.




    “He has evolved in the way he’s looked at things,” Kelly said.

    “Campaign to governing are two different things and this president has been very, very flexible in terms of what is within the realm of the possible.”


    Kelly also suggested that the wall would not be paid “directly” by Mexico, something that Trump also corrected.


    “The Wall will be paid for, directly or indirectly, or through longer term reimbursement, by Mexico, which has a ridiculous $71 billion dollar trade surplus with the U.S.,” he wrote. “The $20 billion dollar Wall is ‘peanuts’ compared to what Mexico makes from the U.S. NAFTA is a bad joke!”




    Trump added that without wall funding there would be no DACA deal.


    “We need the Wall for the safety and security of our country,” he wrote. “We need the Wall to help stop the massive inflow of drugs from Mexico, now rated the number one most dangerous country in the world. If there is no Wall, there is no Deal!”

    General John Kelly needs to be taken down a peg or two. And for President Trump to leave such an important issue to him with his support for amnesty is another betrayal. John Kelly puffs himself up (as he has in the past) in the Bret Baier interview on FOX News, giving himself credit for the negotiations and wrangling among various factions on both sides of the DACA matter. The results will never be good for Americans if Kelly continues to be the lead because he already has said that he is begging and has begged for amnesty for illegal aliens.

    General John Kelly allows the unrelenting democrats like Kamala Harris and Linda Sanchez of California to push him further away from the promises of Donald Trump. My personal opinion is that Mr. Kelly took this job and remains to be a watchdog and manipulate President Trump toward more establishment thinking on many issues.

    Trump said 1,000 miles not 2,000 miles during the campaign at this rallies explaining that there were natural barriers, mountains and rivers, for example that you don't need the wall. This was in 2015 and 2016.

    Kelly has to go.
