Shortly before his departure from the White house chief of staff John Kelly has turned up again in the discussion on the US President Donald Trump required wall on the border to Mexico. "To be honest, it is not a wall."
This is Kelly, who gives up his Post for the new year, said in a published on Sunday an Interview with the newspaper "Los Angeles Times". "The President still says wall. Sometimes he just says barrier or fence. Now he tends to bars of iron."
The idea of a solid concrete wall had been abandoned by the US government early on, once with the border guards about their needs spoken had been, added Kelly. The border guards had "solid barriers in some Places", but, above all, more staff and technical resources required.
The President consultant, Kelly Anne Conway dismissed the question of whether it is going to be a "wall" or not, as a "silly semantic debate". In the television stations Fox said on Sunday that customs and border officials need "better technology, fixed barriers and iron mesh", of which Trump both orally as well as in the short message service Twitter have spoken.
Trump had announced the construction of the wall in the election campaign and declared that he wanted to fight in this way, illegal immigration and crime. The dispute over the wall is currently in the center of the US budget dispute. The opposition Democrats reject trump's billion-demand for the construction of a wall on the border to Mexico, strictly, to lock in what is already a budget and still authorities has in many Federal.
