"You know why we're going to win New Mexico?" Mr Trump asks the crowd, referring to a southwest border state he lost by a healthy margin to Hillary Clinton in 2016. "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."
"And we're building a wall in Colorado," Mr Trump continued. "We're building a beautiful wall. A big one that really works that you can't get over, you can't get under."
Colorado's entire southern border touches up on New Mexico, and Oklahoma, and sits hundreds of miles away from the US-Mexico border. The US-Canada border, meanwhile, is also hundreds of miles away to the north — with at least two states between Colorado and the Great White North.

"And we're building a wall in Texas," Mr Trump continued during his speech. He then added, mentioning another US state without an international border: "And we're not building a wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned,"
The United States shares a border with Mexico along the states of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The Trump administration has diverted funds from military projects across the country to build the promised wall, but reporting indicates that much of the building has occurred in areas where border barriers already existed — not along new or unprotected sections of the border.
