Don’t worry, we’ll build the wall – Trump
Don’t worry, we’ll build the wall – the border wall between the United States and Mexico – Trump meant. While speaking at the National Rifle Association (NRA) Leadership Forum on Friday, the first sitting president since Ronald Reagan to do so. President Donald Trump said his proposed border wall will be built, no matter the cost. The US-Mexican wall is still in the pipeline and will be built, Trump insinuated.

Trump also brought his usual campaign rhetoric to his NRA speech, pledging gun-rights support. “We have news that you’ve been waiting for . . . a long time,” Trump told the crowd in Atlanta. “The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end.”
Much of his speech echoed the rhetoric he used on the campaign, and has continued at rallies during his first 100 days in office. “You need that wall to stop the human trafficking, to stop the drugs, to stop the wrong people, you need the wall,” Trump said. “We’ll build the wall. Don’t even think about it, don’t even think about it, don’t even think about it. That’s an easy one. We’re going to build the wall. We need the wall.”
