Trump Mocked On Social Media After Claiming He’s Building Border Wall In Colorado
President Donald Trump was mocked over Twitter after announcing Colorado border wall construction plans.
On Wednesday, the president claimed he is going to construct a wall in Colorado. “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,” Trump said.
Colorado does not share a border with Mexico. Gov. Jared Polis (D-Colorado) mocked him for not understanding basic geography.
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 pic.twitter.com/bEXLDJYUku

Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colorado) also joined in on the social media criticism.
Is NEW Mexico gonna pay for it? https://t.co/DoSNGfsB9C

The president defended himself early Thursday morning.
(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 to people in the very packed auditorium, from Colorado & Kansas, getting the benefit of the Border Wall!
