In an interview released Monday, former Republican Texas governor and Donald Trump supporter Rick Perry said that Trump doesn’t actually plan to build a physical wall on the Mexican border.
“I’m for Donald Trump, and he says we’re going to build a wall, the Mexicans are gonna pay for it,” Perry told Peter Hamby on the Snapchat exclusive Good Luck America.
“It’s not going to happen,” Hamby retorted.
“Well, it’s not,” Perry agreed. “It’s a wall, but it’s a technological wall, it’s a digital wall… There are some that hear this is going to be 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso, 30-foot high, and listen, I know you can’t do that. ”
Perry is the second Trump supporter to suggest that his trademark border wall won’t actually be a physical wall. New York Republican Congressman Chris Collins said in May that he thought it would be a “virtual wall,” and that Trump supported “rhetorical deportation.”
