When Trump Supporters Chanted 'Build That Wall' at His El Paso Rally, Trump Actually Stopped to Correct Them, Because He Has a New Slogan Now

A pillar of President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign was erecting a wall at the southern border as a means to curtail illegal immigration. As Trump vilified immigrants throughout his campaign, supporters at his rallies began to bellow one succinct phrase: "Build that wall."

Flash forward to the now-President's rally in El Paso, Texas last night, and his supporters were invoking those three words again, possibly with less patience than in 2016. As they chanted, the President stopped to correct them, informing them of a new slogan.


Watch below:

The President stopped the chants of "build that wall" to say:

"Now, you really mean 'finish that wall,' cause we've built a lot of it."

Despite the inaccuracy, it looks like this slogan will play a big part in the President's messaging.

But is it true? The answer won't surprise you.

In 2017, the first year of his Presidency, Trump was allocated approximately $1.6 billion for border security, however the funding was designated to fortify existing fencing, not to expand the wall as Trump has constantly implied.

Yamiche Alcindor of PBS News called out Trump earlier in the day for making a similar claim.

People are calling him out.

His supporters attending the rally, however, didn't seem to care.

They cheered more and more aggressively for the building of the wall, for the imprisonment of Hillary Clinton, and to vilify CNN.

The whole ordeal brought flashbacks of the 2016 campaign, and what could be to come in 2020.

At his 2016 rallies, Trump proved willing and eager to lie to his supporters, and they revealed themselves as ready to accept any claims he made.

That dynamic appears to be holding fast through 2020.
