Trump realizes even Fox News has given up on his border wall

President Donald Trump has slowly come to realize his border wall probably isn't happening.


First, Trump compromised his belief that the wall should be a tall, concrete structure. He ultimately agreed it could be steel slats or a fence of some kind. When he agreed to stop the shutdown after over a month, it became clear he was giving in once more. Those on the far-right went on the attack, calling him a "wimp."

To make matters worse, Politico reported Friday that sources heard Trump say "Nancy is never going to give me what I want." But Sunday, the president came to learn that Fox News hosts and commentators weren't following his false narrative that he somehow "won" the negotiation.

"Never thought I’d say this but I think @johnrobertsFox and @JillianTurner @FoxNews have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN & NBC! Look to final results! Don’t know how my poll numbers are so good, especially up 19 [percent] with Hispanics?" Trump tweeted.

As a fact-check, the 19 percent he's talking about comes from a polling model that sampled less than 20 percent of Latinos in the group of 1,000 respondents. The numbers aren't as solid as he might believe.
