Rick Perry: Trump’s Mexico wall will be a ‘digital wall’ – Politico
Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the expanse of the United States’ border with Mexico is not going to happen, as far as former Texas Gov. Rick Perry is concerned. At least not in the physical sense.
“Iâm for Donald Trump, and he says weâre going to build a wall, the Mexicans are gonna pay for it,” Perry told Snapchat’s Peter Hamby on “Good Luck America.”

Hamby remarked, “Itâs not going to happen.”
“Well, itâs not,” Perry said, explaining, “Itâs a wall, but itâs a technological wall, itâs a digital wall.”
Perry, who is supporting Trump, commented, “There are some that hear this is going to be 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso, 30-foot high, and listen, I know you canât do that. “
The former governor had previously indicated skepticism about Trump’s wall, telling a radio station in Des Moines, Iowa, in January that constructing such an edifice “will take literally years. I donât care how good of a builder you are.”
