Kellyanne Conway Just Made a Laughable Claim About the Government Funding Fight and Trump Proved Her Wrong Almost Immediately
Fox News

Don't they work together?

White House advisor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday falsely claimed that the current impasse over government spending is not directly related to President Donald Trump's demand for a border wall.

“Let’s not all acquiesce to the ridiculous sound bite that this is about a wall,” Conway said on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning. “They’re trying to make ‘wall’ a four-letter word but the president has been talking about border security all along, as have the Democrats until he became president."

Watch below:

Conway continued, incorrectly equating past Democratic support for fencing along the southern border with favoring a wall.

"In 2006 they voted for the Secure Fences Act," Conway recalled. "That included [Senate Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden... 26 Democrats voted for that. This past July, 10 of the 15 Democrats on the appropriate committee, the relevant committee, voted for border security."

Just to be clear: voting for border security does not mean supporting a wall.

Regardless, shortly after Conway's appearance on Fox, Trump hopped onto Twitter and instantly torpedoed Conway's argument by reaffirming his unsubstantiated belief that a wall is the best way to secure the border.

"In our Country," wrote Trump, "so much money has been poured down the drain, for so many years, but when it comes to Border Security and the Military, the Democrats fight to the death. We won on the Military, which is being completely rebuilt. One way or the other, we will win on the Wall!"

Last week, Trump boasted to Schumer and soon-to-be Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) he would be "proud to shut down the government" over "border security," which in Trump speak means funding for a wall. Pelosi fired back by telling the president he does not have the votes.

Talk about fake news.

Twitter also reminded Trump that Mexico is supposed to pay for the wall. Somehow.

Trump claimed on Tuesday the wall would now consist of "artistically designed steel slats."

The president said Mexico would fund the structure through a new trade deal, the USMCA, even though the agreement has not been finalized.

Trump's biggest campaign promise has evaporated.

Many feel that a wall would be a titanic waste of money.

But the fact is, Trump is probably not getting his wall.
