WASHINGTON | AP FACT CHECK: Ex-presidents deny backing Trump on wall
WASHINGTON— January 07, 2019—President Donald Trump’s recent claim that his predecessors endorsed his idea of a wall at the Mexican border got no support from the ex-presidents’ club.
Trump stated in a Rose Garden news conference Friday: “This should have been done by all of the presidents that preceded me. And they all know it. Some of them have told me that we should have done it.”
THE FACTS: The four living ex-presidents do not back him up on this claim.
