Pence Says Trump Had “Impression” Former Presidents Backed Wall After All Former Presidents Say Trump Lied

The Hill reports:

Vice President Pence on Tuesday said President Trump has the “impression” that previous presidents wanted to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall, following claims from Trump that former presidents have told him that they wanted to build a wall.

Spokespeople for multiple former presidents, including Former President Carter, Clinton and George W. Bush, in recent days have publicly denied that they discussed the prospect of a border wall with Trump.

“I know the President has said that that was his impression from previous administrations, previous Presidents,” Pence said during an interview on NBC’s “Today Show.”
