Trump repeats vow to build border wall, but admits ‘there could be some fencing’

In a television interview, President-elect Trump said of “Crooked Hillary” and her husband, “I don’t want to hurt them, I don’t want to hurt them.  They’re, they’re good people. I don’t want to hurt them.” It would appear that he may not be interested in appointing a special prosecutor to probe Mrs. Clinton’s “situation.”  According to Andrew C. McCarthy in a piece over at National Review, “A prosecution of Clinton would provoke Democratic outrage, which means media outrage, which, in turn, means Republican panic.”

But Trump also appeared to back off from commiting to build a solid wall, telling CBS’ “60 Minutes” the barrier might look more like a fence in spots.

“Certain areas, a wall is more appropriate,” Trump told interviewer Lesley Stahl. “I’m very good at this, it’s called construction.”

Trump emphasized that securing the border is his very first immigration priority, but he also promised to deport people living in the country illegally who had committed crimes beyond their immigration offenses.
