About: Mexico
Donald Trump shared pictures of a border fence project in Southern California on his Twitter feed and proceeded to falsely claim that people were looking at the start of construction for his long promised border wall. What Trump didn't explain to his followers was that the fence (not wall) was actually a replacement for a roughly two-mile long fence that is already in place and that the project started in 2009.
