Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thinkprogress.org: “Trump’s Fox & Friends pals finally concede Mexico ain’t paying for that wall”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign was centered on one grand campaign promise: he would build a massive wall along the entire southern border of the nation, and its construction would be completely paid for by Mexico. Three years later, almost no construction has happened and Mexico has repeatedly made it clear that it will not be paying a cent.

On Thursday, Trump’s dear friends on Fox & Friends finally admitted what has been obvious for years: this was an empty claim, a broken promise, and a huge failure on the part of Trump.

The show’s famously pro-Trump hosts made the admission that Mexico is never paying for the wall in a segment highlighting the administration’s plan to unilaterally divert $3.6 billion in funds from 127 defense programs to begin major construction.

Noting that the wall was Trump’s “most prominent campaign promise,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt observed that the administration faces a choice between military projects and building up to 500 miles of the wall — far less than what Trump promised to build as a candidate.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade slammed “sensationalist headlines” but, when addressing one noting that Trump’s new plan “lets Mexico off the hook” for paying, he conceded: “He’s right. The president never should have said Mexico was gonna pay for the wall.”
