Speaking to reporters at the White House Tuesday afternoon, President Trump *guaranteed* that the Mexican border wall will be built during his first term.
"The wall is going to get built, and we are setting record numbers in terms of stopping people from coming in... I was just with [DHS] Secretary Kelly a little while ago, and he said we definitely, desperately, need the wall," he said. "The wall gets built. 100%. Thank you very much... Soon. We're already hiring, doing plans, doing specifications, and the wall gets built."
"The wall is very, very important," he repeated. "Plenty of time."
