Fox News chief anchor Shepard Smith on Wednesday disputed President Trumps recent remarks about border wall construction, saying on air that "there is no new wall."
Smith's remarks were in response to a tweet from the president that said the wall is "going up very fast."
"So far, despite the president's claims to the contrary, there is no new wall," Smith said. "Existing barriers have been replaced. Same span. The total of repaired barrier is about 60 miles along that 2,000-mile border."
"The president also said in the tweet that the wall is going up rapidly. It is not. As we just reported, there's no new wall. Only replacement for walls which were in need of repair or upgrade. Those are the facts," Smith added.

Shep Smith should be a librarian someplace and keep his mouth shut. The guy sucks and Im surprised Brian Kilmeade cant understand why President Trump thinks Fox News sucks. There only a few hours a day when it doesnt suck. Their main news casters during the day is not conservative.
Shemp is of course a full blown Leftist.
The only thing Shep pushes back on are the quads of the guy he is deep thoating.
If I hear down my old broken down fence and replace it with a new higher more difficult to penetrate fence, is t not a “new” fence?......mmmm?.......
57 miles completed already, and here is 14 miles that just got completed.
so existing barriers being replaced is not a ‘new wall’??
What is it being replaced with-an old wall?
Time for Smith to move to CNN.
They don’t care how silly they look
Of course, because somewhere within he believes that in a country controlled by the left his stature will be maintained or augmented. He very likely thinks of himself as a virtuous progressive thought leader. If only he were tuned in enough to realize how wrong he is.
I would rather them replace crappy fence in a high traffic area than build new fence way out in the middle of nowhere.
Poor Shep, maybe he needs a new stimulation up his anus.
What is Shep’s FR posting name?
“so existing barriers being replaced is not a new wall??”
Exactly. In some areas there is only a barbed wire fence. In some of the remote mountainous area there is no fence.
