In a recent tweet, President Donald Trump wrote, “We have just built this powerful wall in New Mexico. Completed on January 30, 2019 – 47 days ahead of schedule! Many miles more now under construction!” The tweet also included a time-lapse video showing construction of bollard fencing, though it’s not obvious in the video where the construction was taking place.

Was the president telling the truth?

Gardner Selby of the PolitiFact Texas fact-checking team has the answer. He says that PolitiFact has found most of the president’s claims about the border wall to be false, but this one’s a little more complicated.
