President Trump “The wall will come later”
Donald Trump’s signature campaign promise and more than likely the one that got him elected the border wall will now come “later” according to a tweet today.
“The wall will come later,” Trump told reporters as he prepared to depart for Florida. “We’re right now renovating large sections of wall, massive sections, making it brand new. We’re doing a lot of renovations, we’re building four different samples of the wall to see which one we’re going to choose, and the wall is going to be built, it will be funded a little bit later.”

“Well, we want to get massive border security, and I think both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer — I think they agree with it. We met last night, as you know, Schumer, Pelosi and a whole group and I think we’re fairly close, but we have to get massive border security.”
No deal was made last night on DACA. Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote.

Reports earlier today from Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer (yikes how can Trump stomach making deals with those two) had said an agreement was made on DACA excluding the wall.
“We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides,” they said.
Trump’s statements Thursday morning seemed to indicate amnesty supporters will bet their way far quicker than those wanting the wall.
“Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?”
“They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own – brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security.”
I will not go as far as Ann Coulter who this morning tweeted “at this point who doesn’t want Trump impeached” and “put a fork in Trump he’s dead, also “if we’re not getting the wall I would prefer President Pence” (I agree with the last one wholeheartedly). But Trump won in large part because of his strong statements on building the wall and making Mexico pay for it.
At this point, who DOESN'T want Trump impeached? https://t.co/g1mMhmm8ng

To back away from that promise now he had better prepare for being a one term President and one of the biggest failures since Obama
