Video Of Trump From 15 Years Ago Surfaces Showing Him Contradicting His Own Wall

At this point, it seems like President Donald Trump has been talking about the Border Wall since the beginning of time. It is, quite clearly, a totally insane policy that has no grounding whatsoever in any kind of actual logic or political theory at all. It is merely the result of what happens when you let the racist, xenophobic, bigoted and uneducated nonsensical Draconian backward views of someone like Donald Trump, the pinnacle of the establishment and the image of privilege, have the power to not only do and say what he wants in public, but also to impose that on the American people and the rest of the world.

On no level does the Border Wall make sense as a concept. First, you have to buy into Trump’s laughable assertions about Mexico as a country and Mexican people, which basically means you have to believe that the several million people who live in or have lived in Mexico are all drug peddling rapists and criminals, which is clearly racist nonsense. Then, you have to buy into the equally ridiculous notion that there is some mega border crisis which just happened to coincide with Donald Trump taking up his office in the White House in which the entire population of Mexico (and the rest of South America, while you’re at it) is determined to march across the border and just settle in the United States.

Clearly, the logic does not make sense on any rational level at all. This is before you even get to many of the other hysterical statements that come along with this ludicrous policy, such as the fact that Mexico would pay for the Wall in one single payment in full (which is obviously not going to happen, and which Trump has been forced to row back on now). The President also promised repeatedly that it would be a solid brick or concrete wall across the length of the border, and it has now somehow morphed into a steel slatted fence across some bits of the border, and yet Trump is still determined to exist that he is keeping his promise to his voters. Plus, the fact that the ongoing government shutdown is the longest in the entire history of the United States by far and it is all because Trump is refusing to budge until the Congressional Democrats cough up the several billion dollars of federal money needed to fund his wall in full.

That is a lot of levels on which the project makes no sense. Now, though, we have yet another one to add to the list. The one thing Trump has been consistent on throughout this whole saga with regards to the wall is that it would apparently work: it would actually stop people from being able to cross the border illegally. Unfortunately for the President, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah has dug up a clip from 2004 in which Trump proudly proclaims that this is not the case, saying:

“Never, ever give up. Don’t give up. Don’t allow it to happen. If there’s a concrete wall in front of you, go through it, go over it, go around it. But get to the other side.”

Oh dear. How embarrassing. As you can imagine, Noah was not going to let Trump off the hook lightly here. Have a watch:
