President Donald Trump said during the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference that the border wall gets “10 feet higher” every time someone doubts that it will be built.
“We know that a strong nation must have strong borders,” Trump said, as someone in the crowd apparently shouted something about the border wall.
“Don’t worry, you’re getting the wall, I heard someone,” POTUS reassured the audience. “You are getting the wall.”
The crowd burst into chants of “build the wall.”
Trump slammed the idea that the talk of a border wall was just a campaign tactic, asserting that every time he hears such rhetoric the wall “gets 10 feet higher.”
“I have a couple of these characters in the back say, oh, he really doesn’t want the wall, he used that for campaigning,” Trump declared. “Can you believe it? I say every time I hear that, the wall gets 10 feet higher. You know that right? Every time. Every single time.”
“We are going to have the wall or they will not have what they want,” Trump said, referring to Democrats.
