President Donald Trump bragged during a speech in Pittsburgh at the Shale Insight Conference that he was building a wall to keep people out of Colorado, which is not on the Mexican border:
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 that you can’t get over, you can’t get under and we’re building a wall in Texas. We’re not building a wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the walls we just mentioned.
Colorado. Gov. Jared Polis explained on Twitter that Colorado does not share borders with any foreign country and that he was not aware of any wall.
Well this is awkward …Colorado doesn’t border Mexico. Good thing Colorado now offers free full day kindergarten so our kids can learn basic geography pic.twitter.com/bEXLDJYUku— Jared Polis (@GovofCO) October 23, 2019
