BORDER/CORONAVIRUS/WALL: “We’re up to almost 300 miles [of border wall]. Can you believe that? Three hundred miles. And it’s moving along rapidly, and we’re very proud of it.
It’s had a tremendous impact on people coming into our country illegally, especially with the pandemic. Because Mexico has got some very big problems on the [coronavirus] pandemic — very heavily infected. And we’ve stopped them. It’s the strongest we’ve been on the border in many, many years. Probably decades. So it’s been very good.”
