Trump Goes Back To Demanding Concrete Wall In Pathetic Twitter Flip-Flop

Trump concrete wall

President Donald Trump returned to demanding a concrete wall on Monday morning after over a week of trying to convince Congress that what he wants is a steel slat wall to excuse his demand for border wall funding.

As the government shutdown drags on for the second week, Trump is still droning on about a border wall and whining about how Democrats won’t support his vanity project.

His latest tweet appears to be in response to outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly, who told the Los Angeles Times in an exit interview this weekend that Trump’s wall isn’t a wall.

“To be honest, it’s not a wall,” Kelly said. “The president still says ‘wall’ — oftentimes frankly he’ll say ‘barrier’ or ‘fencing,’ now he’s tended toward steel slats. But we left a solid concrete wall early on in the administration, when we asked people what they needed and where they needed it.”

Apparently, Trump must have read Kelly’s remarks, which is why he revived his demand for a concrete wall on Twitter.

And these tweets not only make Trump a flip-flopper, but also a giant hypocrite who has demonstrated that he cannot be trusted by Congress no matter who is in charge.

Let’s not forget that Republicans still control the House and the Senate until January 3rd, which means Democrats could not pass Trump’s wall funding even if they wanted to, but Trump’s constant flip-flopping makes it impossible for either party to know what the taxpayer money will be used for and whether Trump will even sign a bill.

After all, it was just a little under two weeks ago when Trump started claiming that what he wants is a steel slat wall while insisting that he doesn’t want to build a concrete wall, and called Democrats liars for saying otherwise.

And now Trump is back to demanding a concrete wall. How can anyone in Congress be expected to pass a spending bill when they don’t know what Trump wants to spend the money on? Does he want a concrete wall or a steel slat wall? Will he sign a bill that pays for a steel slat wall or will he veto it because what he really wants is a concrete wall?

If anything, Trump is demonstrating that he’s to blame for the government shutdown and that this was never about a wall as much as it is about creating chaos.
