There’s not just a tweet that contradicts everything Donald Trump says with something he’s previously said, but apparently, there are video clips, too. Trump has been telling Americans that only a wall along the Southern border will stop the crisis which he manufactured, but Trump in 2004 disagrees with Trump today.
Trump offered a speech in 2004 at Wagner College in Staten Island and explained that walls are penetrable.
“I’ll tell you, to me, the second-most important thing after love what you do is never, ever give up,” Trump told the students. “Don’t give up. Don’t allow it to happen. If there’s a concrete wall in front of you, go through it. Go over it. Go around it. But get to the other side of that wall.”

On Wednesday, Trump tweeted that only a wall will work.
“Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time,” It tweeted. “I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!”
Trump abruptly ended negotiations with Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi by slamming a table, then walking out of the meeting.
It’s almost as if Trump just wants a monument of some sort constructed in honor of himself. It’s almost as if he suffers from Narcissistic Personality disorder in which individuals have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others.
As the Mayo Clinic points out regarding those that suffer from this disorder: “Behind this mask of extreme confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism.”
