President Trump attended a rally to support Matt Rosendale, a candidate for the Montana Senate. Later in the speech, Trump claimed he could build the whole border wall with Mexico in one year, but couldn't because the Democrats in congress were "holding back." In reality, it was very unlikely that he could. The estimates of the time were that it would take several years to build, if not longer.
