Huckabee Claims Wall Will Be Built Sooner Than Expected

President Donald Trump has been taking heat lately from all sides regarding his proposed U.S-Mexico border wall and the time and money it will take to build it.

However, one outspoken conservative has consistently defended the president and his signature border security plan — Mike Huckabee.

On Fox News’ Friday edition of “Outnumbered,” the former Arkansas governor said he would “put money” on the border wall getting built quicker and for less money than even the government has projected.

Huckabee was referring to a recently released internal report by the Department of Homeland Security that the wall would cost as much as $21.6 billion and take more than three years to complete, as reported by Reuters.

This was a huge contradiction of the $12 billion Trump estimated it would cost during his presidential campaign, particularly considering the recent revelation that taxpayers would be the ones fronting the cost of the wall on Trump’s promise that Mexico would pay for it in the long run.

Huckabee, however, said he doubted the DHS estimate was accurate because the government “always overestimates because they’re gonna slow-walk everything.”

In addition, the former governor argued, Trump has a history of completing projects in a timely fashion and “under budget.”

“I would put my money on Donald Trump getting that wall built for a whole lot less than the government says it’s gonna cost and doing it much quicker,” he said.

In the wake of widespread criticism and doubt, it’s certainly nice to see influential leaders, like Huckabee, expressing their confidence in President Trump.
