Trump Says the Wall Is Electrified: ‘If Anybody Touches It We Know Exactly What’s Happening’
President Donald Trump gave a 57 minute phone interview to Fox & Friends on Friday and spoke about a wide range of topics. In the largely one-sided conversation, Trump was asked about Senator Elizabeth Warren and the border wall. Then he made an extraordinary claim.
“But let me just tell you about the wall,” Trump said. “Without the wall, Tom Homan’s [former head of ICE] a great guy, without the wall it would be a disaster.”
“If she took down the wall, you need the wall. They want to have drones, they want to have drones flying around, up and down, this and that. It’s all just a waste of money. We have drones flying to see if anybody’s trying to break through the wall because if you have a bulldozer or if you have heavy blowtorches and things you can break through.”
“We have the wall … is electrified, so that if anybody touches it we know exactly what’s happening we can get there in minutes.”
“You electrified the wall?” Fox host Brian Kilmeade asked.
“We’re building a fantastic wall, and without the wall — it just means she’s gonna to lose. Because ne of the issues I won on last time was border security and you see where the numbers are. Now, until I got the wall built, I got Mexico, we’re not allowed, very simply, we have loopholes, and they’re called loopholes for a reason because they’re loopholes.”
“I could end those loopholes in 15 minutes with crazy Nancy Pelosi and Schumer, I could end them in 15 minutes because they don’t want to meet about them because they like trouble because the more trouble we have, they don’t care about the country, the more trouble they have the better it is for them, they think the worst it is for me.”
“I got the wall built despite them fighting me. I got so much money for the military, the one thing they wouldn’t give money for was the wall because they thought that was very good thing politically. If you don’t have a wall we don’t have a country. If we don’t have a border we don’t have a country.”
