President Donald Trump, on Wednesday, Oct. 23, made it clear that his statement about building a border wall in Colorado was in jest, and he was referring to the audience from Colorado & Kansas in the packed stadium.

(Kiddingly) We’re building a Wall in Colorado”(then stated, “we’re not building a Wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the Wall we’re building on the Border”) refered to people in the very packed auditorium, from Colorado & Kansas, getting the benefit of the Border Wall!” Trump tweeted.

During a speech in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, the president said, “We’re building a wall in Colorado.”

“We’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works that you can’t get over, you can’t get under,” he continued, adding, “And we’re building a wall in Texas. And we’re not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls we just mentioned. And Louisiana’s incredible.”

“You know why we’re going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on their border. And they didn’t have it. And we’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico,” Trump said before mentioning Colorado. 

Colorado does not border Mexico, as Texas and New Mexico do.

Left-wing media and Democrats immediately took the opportunity to mock President Trump.

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) reacted to Trump by saying, “Well this is awkward … Colorado doesn’t border Mexico. Good thing Colorado now offers free full day kindergarten so our kids can learn basic geography.”

Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) responded on Twitter : “Let me repeat: There isn’t an elected leader from the state of Colorado who would support using eminent domain to steal the property of our farmers and ranchers to build a medieval wall.”

But Trump supporters also have their own responses:
