Donald Trump is taking his beautiful border wall to Colorado, for some reason.
The US president declared that he intends to build a wall in Colorado whilst speaking about border wall progress on Wednesday in Pittsburgh at the Shale Insight Conference.
Trump said: “And we’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico and we’re building a wall in Colorado, we’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works that you can’t get over, you can’t get under and we’re building a wall in Texas."
We’re not building a wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the walls we just mentioned.
For reference, here is a map of the US, and this is where we have Colorado and Mexico:
As you can see, they do not share a border.
Make it make sense
Upon hearing that the US president intends to build a wall in America proper, many in the crowd began to cheer.
CNN’s Daniel Dale attempted to clarify what he meant: “Trump was listing actual-border states in which he said he is building the wall (he has not added any miles where barriers didn’t exist before).”
However Colorado isn’t a border state. We’re not sure what’s going on, and neither are people online
TRUMP: "We're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall. A big one that really works." 😳 https://t.co/tVgO95VIdW
