The United States government continues to be shut down as President Trump refuses to sign any budget (and give federal workers their paychecks) that doesn't include billions of dollars for his Great Wall of "Gyna" on the Mexican border.
Given the president's limited vocabulary, he's been resorting to talking about walls for years, and it turns out that Trump used to feel differently about concrete slabs being the be-all and end-all of security. While he now hypes up walls as the ultimate solution, he once encouraged the Wagner College Class of 2004 not to let any barriers stand between them and their dreams.
"Never ever give up. Don't give up. Don't allow it to happen," he says. "If there's a concrete wall in front of you, go through it, go over it, go around it. But get to the other side of that wall."
