2016 ELECTION/BORDER/COURTS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “We set a record, by the way, on our southern border. The wall, which you never hear about, is up to 210 miles long. And one of the reasons we’re setting a record is we have so much wall built, and we’ll have it up to almost 500 miles very early next year. By the end of this year, we’ll be over 400 miles. We’re up to 210 miles of serious wall. This is a wall that people aren’t penetrating. This a very, very powerful wall. Going to be can be up there a long time. And it’s saved us a lot of anguish and grief, but you don’t hear about that…

We had nine court cases on the wall. But we won, and we got it, and now nobody talks about it. Nobody even talks about it. But it’s great for our country. We have to have borders. And I’ve said often — I said long before I won — I won on that great November day; it seems like a long time ago, 2016. I said, ‘If you don’t have borders, you don’t have a country.'”
