Shepard Smith Shuts Down Trump’s Claim He’s Building the Wall: ‘Simply Not True’

‘The facts are these: workers have replaced and repaired sections of the existing wall and fences, but so far they have not built anything new’

EXCERPT:

SMITH: “That’s incorrect. He’s been saying it for a while now but it’s simply not true. The facts are these: workers have replaced and repaired sections of the existing wall and fences, but so far they have not built anything new. Construction is set to begin on a 14 mile extension in the Rio Grande Valley later this month. And this just announced deal in Congress could create 55 miles of new fencing and barrier. No wall. That’s if it passes in Congress. And if the president signs it. And even then, it’s ten miles less than what lawmakers offered the White House last year, long before the government shut down.”
