Trump has not built one single mile of his proposed “Big Beautiful Wall” since he took office over 30 months ago. The only “new” construction that is taking place, is the repair and replacement of existing border fence.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection, confirmed that all the fencing completed since Trump took office is “in place of dilapidated designs” because the existing fence was in need of replacement.
The agency stated that it has built 51 miles of steel bollard fence with the funding that was approved during fiscal years 2017 and 2018. But while the funding was meant both to replace outdated walls and to place barriers where there previously had been none, the government has only completed the replacement projects.
Even though Trump supporters were promised a “concrete wall”, they are willing to settle for a steel fence. But even though the “fence” project hasn’t even begun, die hard MAGA supporters still believe that they are “winning at the border”.
