President Donald Trump told a crowd at a campaign rally in Wisconsin that the border wall was “almost built,” but the reality is that his administration has only built 360 miles of border barriers, and of that, only 5 miles are new construction.
During the president’s remarks Saturday evening in Janesville, someone in the crowd yelled, “Build the wall!”
“The wall is almost built,” Trump replied.
