Donald Trump has been “remarkably consistent” with his call to end illegal immigration, one of his top spokesmen said Tuesday, as the Republican nominee himself sought to underscore his commitment to building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, a day before his scheduled speech on the issue.
“From day one I said that I was going to build a great wall on the SOUTHERN BORDER, and much more,” Trump tweeted. “Stop illegal immigration. Watch Wednesday!”
Minutes earlier, senior communications adviser Jason Miller took to the set of “Fox & Friends,” where he sought to tamp down the notion that Trump’s wall would be anything other than a physical edifice. Appearing on the same program Monday, Trump supporter Rudy Giuliani said that it would also be a “virtual” wall, prompting further speculation that the Manhattan businessman might be waffling on what has arguably been his most prominent proposal.
“What you’ve seen with Mr. Trump is he’s been remarkably consistent in his pledge to end illegal immigration,” Miller told co-host Brian Kilmeade. “We’re going to build the wall, we’re going to secure our borders, we’re going to enforce our immigration laws. We’re going to end sanctuary cities. We’re going to pass e-Verify and uphold the Constitution. That’s going to make a big difference in this country.”
Miller demurred when Kilmeade asked whether he felt as though the wall would go “from sea to shining sea.”
“So, I wouldn’t say that I’m the best person to be the actual adviser as far as how exactly you build the wall, but there will be a physical wall,” Miller remarked, reiterating that “nothing has changed with Mr. Trump’s stance” and repeating that Trump has been “remarkably consistent.”
