Trump tells reporters border wall is ‘wired’, immediately after army general asks him not to discuss in public

Exchange prompts nervous laughter from officials



Jon 1 hour ago

Donald Trump touted the robust construction of his border fence on a visit to southern California, but risked the ire of one of his top generals by revealing the barrier would be “wired” to detect attempts to breach it.

Flanked by engineers and the border patrol commissioner, the president talked up the steel-and-concrete fence’s technological elements during a press conference in San Diego.

He said: “They’re wired, so that we will know if somebody is trying to break through.”

Turning to Lt Gen Todd Semonite, chief of the US Army Corps of Engineers, Mr Trump added: “You may want to discuss that a little bit, general.”

But he was told: “Sir, there could be some merit in not discussing it.”


To nervous laughter from officials, Mr Trump continued: “Ok. I like that. That was a great answer. I’ll just tell you they’re wired, ok? They’re wired. They’re technologically very advanced, all set up for cameras any place we want.

7. This answers Trump's question then.

In a tweet responding to the latest Moron-in-Chief scandal he typed, "Another Fake News story out there – It never ends! Virtually anytime I speak on the phone to a foreign leader, I understand that there may be many people listening from various U.S. agencies, not to mention those from the other country itself. No problem!

….Knowing all of this, is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially “heavily populated” call. I would only do what is right anyway, and only do good for the USA!

Presidential Harassment!

It's not that I'm dumb enough, Donnie Dip-Shit, it's that YOU are dumb enough, many, many times over!

And does anyone really believe Trump typed this by himself without outside help? There are way too many multi-syllable words in that tweet to be composed by himself. The idiot is too stupid to remember what his wife's name is!
