Wrong, and it is going up fast. Brandon Judd just gave us great marks! @FoxNews”

BORDER/COLORADO/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “During a speech at an energy conference on Wednesday [10-23-19], President Trump listed Colorado as one of several states where he wanted to build a wall. ‘We’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico, and we’re building a wall in Colorado,’ he said. ‘We’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works, that you can’t get over, you can’t get under. And we’re building a wall in Texas. And we’re not building a wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned.’ It appeared to be a gaffe. Mr. Trump regularly talks about building a wall along the United States’ border with Mexico, but this time he brought up Colorado, hundreds of miles north of the border…In a tweet early Thursday [10-24-19], Mr. Trump suggested that he had mentioned Colorado ‘kiddingly,’ noting that he had also mentioned Kansas as a place where a wall would not be built.”

BORDER/CONGRESS/FEDERAL FUNDING/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “Congress voted on Friday [9-27-19] to terminate the national emergency that President Trump has declared at the southwestern border, delivering a bipartisan rebuke of his efforts to redirect federal money to a border wall without congressional approval. The resolution of disapproval — the second time in two months that Congress has rejected Mr. Trump’s scheme to allocate large sums for a border barrier over lawmakers’ objections — fell short of its goal. With only 11 Republicans joining House Democrats in supporting it, the measure did not draw the two-thirds majority that would have been needed to overcome a veto. The Senate, which passed the measure this week, also did not muster a veto-proof majority. But the action underscored the continuing struggle between Mr. Trump and Congress over his signature political promise and domestic priority, a symbol of an immigration agenda that has divided the country and the two political parties.”

BORDER/SENATE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “The Senate voted on Wednesday [9-25-19] for a second time to terminate the national emergency that President Trump declared at the southwestern border, in a bipartisan rejection of Mr. Trump’s bid to build a wall without congressional approval. But the 54-to-41 vote, in which 11 Republicans joined Democrats to break with the president over his signature domestic priority, fell short of the margin that would be needed to overcome a presidential veto, ensuring that Mr. Trump would be able to continue to redirect military funding to build a barrier on the southwestern border. The tally was nearly identical to the result of a vote in March, when Congress first sought to block the national emergency declaration and a dozen Republicans joined all Democrats present for the vote. Senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, who voted in March to overturn the emergency declaration, did not vote on Wednesday.”

DEFENSE/FEDERAL FUNDING/MILITARY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “The Trump administration is preparing to take money from military construction funds more than six months after first promising to do so in order to build sections of the wall along the US-Mexico border, according to multiple administration and defense officials. Though it’s unclear which military construction would be put on hold, the move could put at risk projects such as command and control, drone, cyber and training facilities in the US and overseas. White House officials have held talks in the last weeks to begin planning for the move, two administration officials said, which would shift funds from the Department of Defense’s military construction budget to fund the border wall. The move would rely on President Donald Trump’s February emergency declaration, which has faced stiff legal challenges.”

BORDER/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE/WALL: “President Trump’s signature campaign promise to build a wall along the southwestern border is far behind schedule. So he has told his aides to get the job done by whatever means necessary, including by seizing land on the Mexican frontier. The president has repeatedly suggested during meetings on immigration policy that aides ‘take the land’ and ‘get it done,’ according to a person who has heard him say it. The Washington Post first reported that Mr. Trump had brought up the land seizures and had floated the idea of offering pardons to aides willing to break the law, a suggestion he has made previously when exploring ways to fulfill his campaign promises. On Wednesday [8-28-19], a senior administration official insisted that Mr. Trump had never seriously raised pardons or asked anyone to break the law. The president had been joking, the official said — ‘he winks when he does it.’”
