Lately, the media has claimed that the president is backing away from building the Wall.
Trump says the “fake media” is wrong. Again!
Fox News reports:
President Trump began to edge away Monday evening from demanding that funding for his promised border wall be included in a must-pass spending bill, reducing the chances of a government shutdown at the end of the week by making clear he’s flexible on that timeline.
Trump told a group of 20 conservative media reporters Monday evening that he would be willing to return to the wall funding issue in September, two people in the meeting said. His earlier demand that it be included represented a significant impasse in budget talks, and the latest comments potentially could pave the way for a bipartisan deal just days ahead of the government shutdown deadline.
White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway confirmed to “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning that the wall does not need to be funded this week, but she said it remains a “very important priority to [Trump].”
Many other media outlets have reported that President Trump seems to be backing down on the Wall, but President Trump had a message for the people Tuesday:
Don’t let the fake media tell you that I have changed my position on the WALL. It will get built and help stop drugs, human trafficking etc.

There was never any doubt in the minds of Trump supporters that he intends to keep his promise. At this point, the issue simply needs to be postponed to avoid a government shutdown. There are many other issues that need to be addressed and those things can’t happen if Congress isn’t at work.
Bottom line: look for the issue of the Border Wall to come up again in the Fall. For right now, expect the Trump administration to focus on tax reform and repealing and replacing Obamacare.
The wall will be built!
