President Donald Trump wants his social media followers to know that even if Congress is unwilling to give him as much money as he wants for a border wall, he's nonetheless building it. And he really is -- with a couple significant caveats. On Wednesday, Trump tweeted a time-lapse video from the Army Corps of Engineers that shows construction of bollard fencing along the southern border in Santa Teresa, New Mexico.
The wall-like structure in Santa Teresa isn't new in more ways than one. The structure replaced fences and other barriers that were already there, KOAT-TV reports.
The AP reported that the project was "funded with operations and maintenance money budgeted through the Army Corps of Engineers," which explains why the Army Corps of Engineers' logo is on the video.
