Trump Says Biden Will Finish the Border Wall: There Would Be a ‘Revolution If They Didn’t’

President Donald Trump has claimed that former Vice President Joe Biden will finish the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border if he wins the presidential election in November. Trump warned that Biden would have to finish construction or face the consequences.

“What he wants open borders, he wants people pouring into our country, and he wants, you know, drugs and all the other problem,” Trump told Fox 10 Phoenix during his visit to a section of the wall in Arizona.

“You’ll never solve it without this,” he said. “No, he’ll complete it. You’d have a revolution if they didn’t do it.”

“People are so happy with it,” the President said. “And this is a large piece but wherever we have the wall, it just stops a dead. You can’t get over it. It stops at dead.”

“So illegal immigration is a big problem, open borders a big problem, crime comes in, tremendous drugs, human trafficking. Hopefully he won’t get the chance, I’m not sure he would even know the difference.”

Just 200 miles of new border wall has been built since Trump took office, despite making a wall along the southern border a central plank of his 2016 campaign. Biden has not committed to continuing construction of the wall and it’s difficult to see how supporting the wall would be acceptable to his voters.
