Donald Trump has cornered himself by insisting that the wall he promised his base—the one that Mexico was going to pay for—must be paid for… by his base. Because Trump is an insane liar person, he’s doing what he always does: spouting insanely dumb and easily verifiable lies. A couple of days ago he made the statement, “This should have been done by all of the presidents that preceded me, and they all know it Some of them have told me that we should have done it.” Really? Really. For real? Yes. That’s what he said. Former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush quickly told people that no, no, they did not tell Trump anything regarding an expensive and pointless wall on our southern border. A short while ago, President Jimmy Carter made a statement going one further.
Clarification from former U.S. President Jimmy Carter:
"I have not discussed the border wall with President Trump, and do not support him on the issue.” — Jimmy Carter

President Carter has been an honest critic of Trump’s garbage fire corruption circus show, and probably still cannot believe he has to answer questions about possibly agreeing with him on anything. Traditional news outlets are considering whether or not to air Trump’s immigration windbag of lies Monday night. The rest of us have yet to hear a single truth come out of this dirtbag’s mouth.
And here’s the proof that Jimmy Carter knows a thing or two about walls…
Here's Jimmy Carter at 93, volunteering in 94° weather for Habitat for Humanity, hammering drywall, operating a buzzsaw. Lovely interview w/ @johndickerson: https://t.co/rO1ryo5qJ6 pic.twitter.com/9FFR1e910e
