  Trump vetoes measure to end his emergency declaration on border wall Trump vetoes measure to end his emergency declaration on border wallTrump declared the emergency to circumvent Congress and take money already designated for other programs to pay for the U.S.-Mexico border wall he promised to build during his 2016 campaign.

(Kiddingly) We ’ re building a Wall in Colorado ”(then stated , “ we ’ re not building a Wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the Wall we ’ re building on the Border” Trump had just been speaking about the border wall plans along the southern border between New Mexico and Mexico when he made the

Trump says he was kidding about building a wall in Colorado . Two dozen Republicans disrupted the impeachment inquiry by staging a "sit-in" in the hearing room where a Pentagon official was set to testify, protesting what they see as the secretive nature of the Democrats' investigation.

President Trump claims he was kidding when he told an audience at a shale conference in Pittsburgh on Wednesday that his administration is building a wall in Colorado. Mr. Trump made the comments while talking about border security.

It was not immediately clear what the president meant when he made the remark, given that Colorado is clearly not a border state. Mr. Trump tried to clear up his comments in a tweet at 12:20 a.m. Thursday.

"(Kiddingly) We're building a Wall in Colorado" (then stated, "we're not building a Wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the Wall we're building on the Border") referred to people in the very packed auditorium, from Colorado & Kansas, getting the benefit of the Border Wall!" Mr. Trump wrote.

Colorado drops its T-Mobile-Sprint lawsuit after Dish agrees to house headquarters in the state

  Colorado drops its T-Mobile-Sprint lawsuit after Dish agrees to house headquarters in the state Why does the HQ look like a Cabelas?The Colorado Attorney General’s Office announced its decision on Monday after Dish promised that the state would be one of the first in the nation to receive 5G services and become the home of its new wireless headquarters, creating thousands of jobs. The DOJ approved the T-Mobile-Sprint merger back in July after it was able to piece together a new wireless competitor by allocating some of Sprint’s spectrum to Dish. The Federal Communications Commission formally voted to approve the merger late last week.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that his administration was building a wall in Colorado , despite “And we ’ re not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that we just “Good thing Colorado now offers free full day kindergarten so our kids can learn basic geography.”

And we ’ re building a wall in Colorado ,” Trump said , leaving more than a few people scratching their He then gave a shout-out to a few other locations “ We ’ re building a wall in Texas,” he said . “Good thing Colorado now offers free full day kindergarten so our kids can learn basic geography.”

But it wasn't clear when Mr. Trump delivered the comments that he was kidding.

"You know why we're going to New Mexico? Because they want safety on their border. And they didn't have it," the president said during his Pennsylvania speech. "And we're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works — you can't get over, you can't get under. And we're building a wall in Texas. And we're not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that were just mentioned. And Louisiana's incredible."

Mr. Trump's acting chief of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, Mark Morgan, admitted during a press conference at the White House earlier this month that none of the 71 new miles of border wall the administration has built are new "linear miles." That means the administration is thus far replacing existing barricades or wall instead of adding wall in places where no barricade or wall existed. The Trump administration aims to build more than 400 miles of border wall by the end of 2020, particularly given that building a wall is a central message of the president's re-election campaign.
