One the many people Donald Trump met with over the weekend at his golf club in New Jersey was Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who is rumored to be a candidate to lead the Department of Homeland Security.
As Trump and Kobach posed for a picture outside of his golf club Sunday, Kobach had some documents in his left hand that were on the outside of his leather binder, allowing photographers to snap a clear picture of some of the text at the top of the first page.
The highlighted section of the document mentions “1,989 miles planned for rapid build“, in addition to the 386 miles of the existing border wall. Notice the phrase “rapid build”, indicating Trump’s desire to get started building the wall as soon as he takes office.
Although this is merely a proposal by Kris Kobach during his interview for the DHS position, it should prove to media detractors that Donald Trump is indeed serious about building the wall. After Trump’s interview with 60 minutes following the election he mentioned “maybe” some sections of the border could be better served by a fence, but the wall is absolutely getting built.
The media tried to run with the term “fence” and claim that Trump was “backtracking” on his promise to build the wall, in an attempt to drive a wedge between him and his supporters. It did not work.
Needless to say, if this proposal turns out to be implemented, we will be looking at a very secure border with a huge portion of it fortified with a “big, beautiful wall”, as Trump would say. Donald Trump is very serious about building the wall, and if this proposal is any indication of things to come under a Trump administration, his supporters will be extremely satisfied.
