The Hill reports:
President Trump early Thursday morning sought to clarify remarks he made regarding his long-promised wall along the southern border, saying he was only kidding when he mentioned that a barrier was being constructed along the non-border state of Colorado.
Trump sparked mockery from several Democratic lawmakers Wednesday night after telling a crowd at the Shale Insight conference in Pittsburgh that the U.S. was in the process of building a wall along the southern border of Colorado, a state that sits directly north New Mexico.
“We’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we’re building a wall in Colorado. We’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works that you can’t get over, you can’t get under,” he said.
(Kiddingly) We’re building a Wall in Colorado”(then stated, “we’re not building a Wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the Wall we’re building on the Border”) refered to people in the very packed auditorium, from Colorado & Kansas, getting the benefit of the Border Wall!

Out of the news cycle for 24 hours, and wake up to discover Trump is building a border wall with Colorado, and his audience applauded. Grandpa would have his keys taken away; he needs nuclear codes taken away. pic.twitter.com/Woje4DSKHE
