President Donald Trump insisted he had not backed off his campaign promise to build an impenetrable border wall, after a Republican ally described the proposal as metaphorical.

Sen. Linsey Graham (R-SC) told reporters Sunday after White House meeting that Trump’s border security proposal might not include a physical wall, and outgoing chief of staff John Kelly said the “solid concrete wall” had been abandoned early in the administration.

“It’s just not about physical barriers. It’s about other things,” Graham said. “The wall has become a metaphor for border security, and what we’re talking about is a physical barrier where it makes sense.”

Trump, however, disagreed Monday morning in a tweet, saying he intended to build a concrete wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, except in areas where it would be made see-through at the request of authorities.

“An all concrete Wall was NEVER ABANDONED, as has been reported by the media,” Trump tweeted. “Some areas will be all concrete but the experts at Border Patrol prefer a Wall that is see through (thereby making it possible to see what is happening on both sides). Makes sense to me!”

“We really need to make patients aware that this is not going to be a walk in the park,” Dr. Sandra Fryhofer of the American Medical Association told CNBC. “They are going to know they had a vaccine. They are probably not going to feel wonderful. But they’ve got to come back for that second dose.”

Trump’s bizarre Georgia play: GOP in chaos just so he can show he’s still the boss

Despite having begrudgingly allowed the General Services Administration to issue an "ascertainment" that Joe Biden is the president-elect and the normal transition process could begin, Donald Trump is still relentlessly flogging the lie that the election was stolen by the Democrats and he is the rightful winner. And he's sending out a daily fusillade of emails begging for money, with the alleged goal of overturning the results.
