Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Mocked President Donald Trump's modified version of his border wall, calling his last iteration a "beaded curtain" in an interview with USA Today.
Trump insisted throughout his campaign, and for nearly two years as President, that the wall would be concrete. Now he speaks of a "steel lamella fence" or a "steel lamella barrier", which he claims are "artistically designed" and "beautiful".
It's "a wall or a lattice fence, or whatever you want to call it," he later said in a video that night, in which the partial government shutdown began, after he had refused to sign a preliminary spending bill, unless billions were earmarked for its wall.
Pelosi sneered in an interview published Tuesday: "We're going to make a wall Building cement and Mexico will pay for it. "While he's already retired from cement, I think he has a beaded curtain or something.
Mexico, who paid for a wall, a budget director and a new incumbent White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, said in an interview on ABC Sunday that "you and I know it can not work that way ". He acknowledged that the Department of Homeland Security "can do that". t actually spend money from Mexico; We have to get it from the Ministry of Finance. "
Pelosi, who is likely to become the head of the House after New Democrats take office, revealed in the interview to Trump as a" scare maker "who sparked unjustified concerns about immigrants'" terrorism ". "He uses scare tactics that are not based on evidence, and that's wrong," she told USA Today.
