White House: Trump not wavering on border wall
    White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Friday that President Trump will not abandon his promise to build a border wall, despite complaints from some Republicans that the wall is not the best way to boost national security.
    When asked if support for the wall is weakening among Republicans, Spicer answered simple, "No."
    "The president was very clear, that was something that he campaigned on and promised the American people as an effort to both protect our national security and our economic security," Spicer told reporters at the White House.

President Trump --- Keep them guessing?   
    I am as confused as everyone else. According to vocabulary.com: "The difference between a fence and a wall is that you can almost always see through a fence, at least to some degree, while a wall is solid."
    In my fifteen years on the border I learned that U.S. Border Patrol agents hate walls because they have no idea what is going on on the other side. In fact, one of the first projects started under the Trump Administration was the replacement of a ten-foot steel mat border wall with a real fence.
    It is very hard to attack something that cannot be defined, so maybe it is best to keep them guessing.
