Thursday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” former Gov. Haley Barbour (R-MS) said President Donald Trump’s border wall was a “metaphor.”

Barbour said, “Let’s talk about whether there has to be anything close. I’m for border security. We need secured border … but a wall is not the best way to get it. There’s variety of technologies ought to be used from boots on the ground, to cameras, to drones to helicopters and yeah, there may be a few places where the wall is the best thing, but I think as this goes through we’ll get the kind of border security people wanted and voted for, and thought that they were going to get way back in 1986 as you remember.”
