Trump’s mic-drop ’60 Minutes’ answer on the wall – ‘I’m very good at this. It’s called construction.’

Trey Gowdy vs Ted Cruz for Supreme Court: take our POLL here

One of the first things brought up Sunday night during President-elect Donald Trump’s “60 Minutes” interview was the promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

CBS News’ Lesley Stahl asked Trump if he was really going to build the wall, but not before noting that some Republican lawmakers are talking about a fence, as opposed to a wall,

“Would you accept a fence?” she asked.

Trump responded with a mic-drop answer that left little room for follow-up.

“For certain areas, I would, but certain areas a wall is more appropriate,” he said. “I’m very good at this, it’s called construction.


Trump stood by his pledge to deport criminal illegal immigrants — he tagged the number at 2-3 million,

“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, we have a lot of these people, probably two million — it could be even three million — we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” he said. “But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally.”

As for the wall, one social media user seemed to sum it up well with the following meme:
