Donald Trump provided a little bit of the nuts and bolts of how and when the construction of a border wall with Mexico will begin and it’s pretty much the sooner the better. In his Wednesday press briefing, Donald Trump said, “We’re going to build a wall. I could wait about a year, year and a half until we finish our negotiations with Mexico, which will start immediately after we get to office, but I don’t want to wait.”
He said, “I don’t feel like waiting a year or a year and a half. We’re going to start building. Mexico, in some form, and there are many different forms, will reimburse us and they will reimburse us for the cost of the wall.” He goes on to say, “By the way, Mexico has been so nice, so nice. I respect the government of Mexico, I respect the people of Mexico, I love the people of Mexico.”
Continuing, Mr. Trump cautions, “Don’t blame them for what’s happened. I don’t blame them for taking advantage of the United States. What I say is we shouldn’t have allowed that to happen. It’s not going to happen anymore.”
Sheriff David Clarke says he likes Donald Trump’s sense of urgency about this, he’s made it very clear. As a matter of fact he corrected one of the reporters today who called it a fence, he says, ‘It’s not going to be a fence it’s going to be a wall.’ Look, you have to have a barrier and you have to have some other things but it starts with a barrier.”
Clarke says, “Donald Trump knows that Congress will drag their feet if he allows this to go on too long past his first one hundred days or past the first six months, Congress will put this on the back burner. So I’m glad he’s keeping this front and center. It’s been the hallmark of his campaign.”
Hannity moves on to the topic of the despicable New Jersey Senator Corey Booker, who said out of one side of his mouth about Senator Sessions, “I feel honored to work with him” celebrating civil rights activists. And then “he testifies today against Jeff Sessions in the most theatrical way imaginable. Did you get the sense he was kind of auditioning to try to be Barack Obama with the lofty rhetoric. I felt it was so fraudulent and phony to me.”
Clarke replies, “I thought it was disgraceful on the part of Corey Booker, who I have met. He’s got more class than that but he didn’t demonstrate this at the Sessions hearings. It was phony, he lied about Jeff Sessions, he misrepresented statistics, all in an attempt, like you said to audition potentially for 2020, but that was not the time to do this. He calls Jeff Sessions a friend, if you saw the opening of that and then he turned around and just stabbed him in the back for the rest of his presentation.”
“It was phony,” says Sheriff Clarke, describing Booker as a “poor man’s Obama in terms of acting because he just doesn’t have it.”
Hannity springs what might have been a bit unexpected question on whether Clarke will be joining the Trump administration, to which he replies, “that’s up to Donald Trump.” Hannity notes his answer came quickly and with a little different cadence than what he’s used to. He jokes that he’s suspicious now.
