Donald Trump got blasted so badly for his pointless government shutdown, by pretty much everyone. As the president caved to the Democrats to reopen the government WITHOUT any funding for his border wall, it looked like Trump put America through hell for 35 days for absolutely no reason. It was such a bad move that even Fox News has called him out and pointed out his weakness, calling it a huge “victory” for Democrats.
But Fox News blasted Trump on this subject before, and exposed his lies when it comes to his border wall. In the past, Fox News has blatantly cut the president off. One example of this is what happened at a South Carolina rally, when the president told a massive lie about his border wall. Telling his supporters that his border wall was being constructed, Trump said:
It’s not ‘build that wall’ anymore,” he yelled to his base. “It’s, ‘Continue building that wall.’ Because we’re building it.”
Later at the White House, Trump repeated that claim and said:
We started on the wall. Started up in San Diego and other places. It’s under construction with $1.6 billion dollars, but we’re going to ask for an increase in wall spending so we can finish it quicker.”
That claim was absolutely bullsh*t, like most of the things Trump says. It was such a blatantly false statement that Fox News actually cut off Trump’s rally speech, which you can watch below:

It’s always a nice reminder when Trump’s favorite network is forced to turn against him and expose his lies. As Trump’s border wall insanity ramps up, we can only expect to see more of this.
