Trump has not been president a week and he has already kept a lot of his major campaign promises. You can say what you will about him, but you can’t doubt that he is a man of his word.
His promises were not hollow like most politicians.
Now there is an interesting development with regards to our border wall with Mexico:
In 2006 a law was passed and was subsequently signed into law by then President, George W. Bush, that authorized the construction of 700 miles of fencing along the Mexico border. However, in 2008 the Democrat-controlled Congress stalled the project and construction on the wall never commenced.
Though the project stalled and it’s construction never occurred, the Democrats never took the time or political capital to repeal the law. Because the law is still on the books, President Trump is able to immediately order the construction of the wall to start on a schedule determined by him!
Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!

As Obama and the Democrats didn’t take time to repeal the law, it is going to be a much quicker process.
