US President Donald Trump tweets that the wall along the border with Mexico — a key campaign promise — “will continue to be built” despite opposition and criticism.
The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and existing fences and walls, will continue to be built.

In a series of tweets, the president also addresses his controversial decision to end the DACA program saying: “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!…..”
“They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own — brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security,.”
He further denies that a deal was reached with Democrats, tweeting that “massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote.”
