Trump has put up 39 miles of wall on 2,000-mile border despite claims of more, by Anna Giaritelli.

Only a small fraction of the 2,000-mile wall President Trump vowed as a candidate to build on the U.S.-Mexico border has gone up since he took office more than two years ago, according to a document the defense agency overseeing construction provided to Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D.

Exactly 39.8 miles of wall — technically steel bollard fence — have been installed along the southern border since January 2017, for an average of 1.7 miles per month.

Remember the chants of “Build a wall!” at every Trump rally. Sad.
