Trump Says Enforcing Border with Drones is ‘Fun’ But Not As Good as ‘Old Fashioned Wall’

On Sunday morning, President Trump pondered the relative entertainment value of measures for enforcement along the southern U.S. border, deeming “drones and all the rest” to be “fun” but not as good as a wall.

“The only way to stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking, criminal elements and much else from coming into our Country is with a Wall or Barrier,” said Trump in the tweet. “Drones and all of the rest are wonderful and lots of fun, but it is only a good old fashioned Wall that works!”

It is day two of a government shutdown over the dispute between Republicans and Democrats regarding funding for that wall.

Also on Sunday morning, new chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said on more than one talk show that the shutdown could last into 2019. Neither side has expressed any willingness to compromise on the topic.
