Outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly says the Trump administration isn’t going to build a wall.
“To be honest, it’s not a wall,” Kelly told the Los Angeles Times in an interview.
Kelly is leaving the West Wing during a partial government shutdown, which began due to an impasse over border wall funding in Congress.
President Trump has demanded $5 billion, while Democrats won’t concede more than $1.3 billion for border security. Regardless the result of that fight, Kelly dismissed the idea that the final product will live up to the president’s campaign promise of building a “big, beautiful wall.”
“The president still says ‘wall’ — oftentimes frankly he’ll say ‘barrier’ or ‘fencing,’ now he’s tended toward steel slats.
Kelly also broke from Trump concerning the Caravan who have attempted to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. In the run-up to the November midterm elections in particular, Trump and his allies warned of migrant “caravans” that were full of criminals. Kelly sees them as people who want a better life for their Children.
