Trump Appeals for Border Wall in New Years Eve Fox Interview: ‘It is Not Old Fashioned,’ It’s Like the Wheel
As 2018 comes to an end, Donald Trump phoned into Fox News’ New Year show in Times Square to make one last appeal for his border wall.
For most of the day, Trump spent his New Years Eve insisting “MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL,” all while rage-tweeting against Democrats over the continuing battle from the government shutdown. When he spoke to Pete Hegseth on Monday night, Trump blasted the “pure obstruction” while talking up the border wall as a crucial element of national security.
“The wall is part of border security. I hear about the wall is old fashioned. It is not old fashioned. It is 100% foolproof. You look at the wheel. I guess they would say the wheel is old fashioned. It’s been around for a long time. The wall is the only way to do it. Technology – nobody knows more about technology than me – technology is just the bells and whistles on the wall. If you don’t have the wall, you are going to have people coming in.”
Judging by Trump’s remarks and some of his most recent tweets, it seems he’s really trying to sell the idea that his border wall is tantamount to the historical significance of the invention of the wheel.
It’s incredible how Democrats can all use their ridiculous sound bite and say that a Wall doesn’t work. It does, and properly built, almost 100%! They say it’s old technology – but so is the wheel. They now say it is immoral- but it is far more immoral for people to be dying!

…Remember this. Throughout the ages some things NEVER get better and NEVER change. You have Walls and you have Wheels. It was ALWAYS that way and it will ALWAYS be that way! Please explain to the Democrats that there can NEVER be a replacement for a good old fashioned WALL!
