Build the wall, build the wall! Remember how Trump supporters were chanting those three words constantly whenever their Great Leader gave a speech? Well, guess what? Trump is having second thoughts.
Kellyanne Conway tells @ChrisCuomo that after consulting with experts, Trump has “discovered” a physical wall is not needed across entire border; part of it is better technology, part of it is fencing, etc

You’d think that a presidential candidate would consult with experts before or at least during the campaign, but clearly, Trump begged to differ. He only did so after he became president and had told his base hundreds of time that “the wall” would be built, that it wouldn’t be a mere “fence,” and that technology wouldn’t suffice either. No, no, this had to be a real, physical wall.
Or not. Apparently, Trump is now happy with a fence and technological security as well.
Is this what his “nationalist-populist” base voted for?
