(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The campaign promise from presidential candidate Donald Trump to build a border wall paid for by Mexico & his threat to shut down the government if the wall is not funded introduced. [Ten times, campaigner TRUMP - says Mexico will pay for the wall.] [Tuesday, President TRUMP - says we will build a wall that is necessary & we will close down the government, if necessary.] [Repeatedly, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee SANDERS - says he campaigned & won on the wall to protect American security.] Josh Green's book "The Devil's Bargain" quoted about Trump advisers keeping Trump on message by using the concept of the wall to make him talk about immigration.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: Sara Murray) The questions about Trump's new view that he will shut down the government if not getting funding for the wall, what the Republicans are saying about a possible shutdown & the negative headlines the last time this happened discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Interview held with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos about Trump & the wall. [RAMOS - recounts what Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto told Trump about not paying for the wall, how the wall is a stupid idea; points out the number of immigrants coming to the US from Mexico has decreased; comments on the possible presidential pardon for Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who discriminated against Latinos & racially profiled Hispanics; criticizes the president, who is lying when making racist statements: more journalism needed.]
