Trump claims he was 'kidding' about building border wall in Colorado
Of course, Colorado does not share a border with Mexico.
Donald Trump’s boast of building part of the border wall in Colorado is garnering attention in the state, including from the state’s governor, Democrat Jared Polis.
Trump was speaking Wednesday to an audience in Pennsylvania when he included Colorado in a list of states where the border wall is being constructed, along with New Mexico and Texas.
Trump said: “We’re building a wall in Colorado, we’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works, that you can’t get over, you can’t get under.”
Of course, Colorado doesn’t share a border with Mexico, which Polis, and others on social media noted.
Polis tweeted: “Well this is awkward …Colorado doesn’t border Mexico. Good thing Colorado now offers free full day kindergarten so our kids can learn basic geography.”
Early Thursday, Trump sent an incoherent tweet in which he claimed that he made the comment about Colorado and the wall “kiddingly” and said people in Colorado would benefit from the wall on the border.
“(Kiddingly) We’re building a Wall in Colorado’ (then stated, ‘we’re not building a Wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the Wall we’re building on the Border’) refered [sic] to people in the very packed auditorium, from Colorado & Kansas, getting the benefit of the Border Wall!,” Trump tweeted, misspelling the word “referred” in his missive.
