Mexico border wall could be partly fence, President-elect Donald Trump tells US network CBS
As a matter of public policy, this is completely sensible. Most people thought that the notion of an actual wall spanning the border was a bit silly. We can secure the border with a combination of fences, walls, and technology. But Trump was repeatedly asked specifically about this distinction during the campaign and he adamantly insisted that he meant a physical wall. And here we are less than a week from the election and he has backed off of that stance. The promises from his campaign are falling faster than the leaves this Fall.
