Well, that didn't take long.

White House chief of staff John Kelly told Democratic lawmakers Wednesday that some of President Donald Trump's positions as a candidate on the border wall were "uninformed."

"Yes, we heard him say that," Arizona Representative Ruben Gallego confirmed.


Kelly said he worked to educate the President on the reality of governance and divest him of his impractical campaign promises. Kelly talked about the difference between campaign rhetoric and actual policy, saying:

You make campaign promises but then you learn the reality of governing, which is difficult."

However it appears President Trump and his chief of staff disagree. Thursday morning the president posted a series of Tweets contradicting Kelly.

Trump began his latest Tweet storm at 6:15am.

This all comes amid attempts by Kelly and others to create an immigration package capable of passing both houses of Congress to stop a possible government shutdown on Saturday. The proposed wall's cost remains a roadblock in any legislative deal on immigration and the budget.

While the idea of the wall played well on the campaign trail and still resonates with Trump's most ardent supporters, the majority of Americans oppose it for various reasons.

After the president's morning Tweets, Twitter let him know what most people think of his wall.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
