READ: Department of Homeland Security Memo on the Border Wall: ‘DHS Is Committed to Building Wall and Building Wall Quickly’

Whut?

With growing skepticism as to whether or not President Donald Trump’s long-sought wall at the United States’ Southern border will receive funding in the next budget plan, the Department of Homeland Security released a document called Walls Work. The report documents portions of Southern border walls that have been completed or are expected to be completed before the end of next year.

In his fight for funding, Trump has increasingly proclaimed that “tremendous” portions of the wall have already been built (though these are technically fences, many of which have been around since the 1990s).

The report from the Department of Homeland Security—headed by Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen—was seeking to bolster his claims with its report, however people began to notice that something was off about the statement.

The statement doesn’t use article adjectives multiple times. While the DHS may have thought it was being efficient, the impact backfired, with the statement sounding like it was written by a caveman:

“DHS is committed to building wall and building wall quickly. We are not replacing short, outdated and ineffective wall with similar wall…Prior to President Trump taking office, we have never built wall that high.”

It wasn’t long before Twitter began doing its work.
