Chuck Todd Says Trump Engaging in ‘Unprecedented Level’ of Deception: He’s ‘Pretending’ to Build the Wall

Chuck Todd opened Tuesday’s MTP Daily by asking, “Are we bordering on make-believe?”

He ripped President Donald Trump for his “unprecedented level of presidential deception” on the wall, saying, “The president seems to be pretending to fulfill his campaign promise by pretending to build his wall.”

Todd noted how Trump has changed the slogan from “build the wall” to “finish the wall,” as well as Trump’s claim today that the wall is being built anyway.

“The president seems to be conditioning his supporters to believe that the wall is an inevitability, even though there may be a more appropriate word for it if he end-runs Congress. That would be illegal,” he concluded.
