Donald Trump: Mexico Border Wall Now ‘Fence Extension,’ Original Plan ‘Not Realistic’

In a recent video, Cenk Uygur with The Young Turks asked if viewers remembered President-elect Donald Trump’s defining promise during his successful presidential campaign.

“Everyone knows it right?” the TYT host asked.

The Inquisitr has previously reported on the promised Trump wall along the length of the entire Mexican border; a wall that is “impenetrable” and features sensors “above and below ground.”

At the same Phoenix, Arizona rally where Donald Trump described his border wall, he stated that undocumented immigrants with criminal records will be deported on “day one” of a Trump administration, which will now become a reality on Friday, January 20, 2017, as reported by Billboard.

Whether or not Donald Trump intends to follow through with his plans to deport criminal undocumented immigrants appears unknown. It has been said that the president-elect is backpedaling on the issue of the Trump wall, which now may be becoming a Trump fence, more in line with what has been previously proposed by his presidential opponent, Democratic nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as reported by PolitiFact.

As the U.S. senator from New York, Hillary Clinton voted in favor of the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which called for the installation of “double-layer fencing across 700 miles of the border.” Today, only 32 miles of the 700-mile fence are said to be “double-layered.”
