Trump confused everybody saying that he wants to build the Wall in Colorado which is not a border state
During his visit to Pittsburg the president Donald Trump at his speech said that he wants to build the Wall in Colorado, obviously forgetting or misspeaking that Colorado isn’t a border state.
The President of the United States seems to be having tough times with geography of his own country, as many spotted after his speech in Pittsburg.
“We’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we’re building a wall in Colorado,” President said. “We’re building a beautiful wall. A big one that really works, that you can’t get over. You can’t get under it.”
The centennial state doesn’t share the border with Mexico.
Trump cultists are not very happy about this - about us pointing out that Colorado doesn't border Mexico.— Will Black (@WillBlackWriter) October 24, 2019
If they want to have a good reason to be unhappy, be unhappy about the fact that @realDonaldTrump is an iduot and will fail to cling to power https://t.co/lguHRnTFL3
After the speech, Jared Polis, the governor of Colorado responded to Trump’s claim saying that it is “awkward”.
“Colorado doesn’t border Mexico. Good thing Colorado now offers free full day kindergarten so our kids can learn basic geography”

And not only the U.S. governors were amused by the Trump’s statement but the New Mexico governors.
“Wouldn’t surprise me if he really did forget about a state he lost by such a significant margin, especially when that seems to be the only thing of importance to him and given that he can expect more of the same in 2020,” Nora Sackett, Press Secretary for New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said.
But later Trump said that he was kidding about his proposal.
(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!— Donald J.
