Donald Trump wants to build a wall.
In fact, the US government is entering the third week of a shut down, on the back of intense discussions about the wall.
The 72-year-old US president even wants to declare a national emergency, in order to build this wall.
But all this talk about the wall jogged some people’s memory.
On Twitter, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah has reminded the world of 12 words Donald Trump uttered in an inspirational speech back in 2004.
He was attending Wagner College’s commencement ceremony to receive an honorary doctorate of letters… and this is not good news for his “wall”.
Oh man, once Trump gets his wall he better hope no one shows Mexico this old video we found. pic.twitter.com/FtzeGlmecz

Moments into the address, Trump encouraged the audience to never ever give up.
Then he chose to use a metaphor that in 2019, he’s bound to regret.
“If there’s a concrete wall in front of you, go through it.”
Oh. That is some brilliant advice for the Mexican people he is trying to keep out.
“Go over it, go around it, but get to the other side of that wall,” he continued.
That is… great advice, actually.
