Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to President Trump, said Monday that Democrats’ opposition to the border wall is about preventing Mr. Trump from succeeding rather than actual objections.

“They don’t want the president to have a victory on this,” Ms. Conway said on “Fox & Friends.”

She noted that in 2006, Democratic senators supported the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which passed, but the fencing wasn’t complete.

“The president is making the very reasonable request to finish it,” Ms. Conway said.

Despite remaining committed to getting the wall done, Mr. Trump isn’t willing to shut down the government over it, she said.

Ms. Conway explained that “building a wall remains a very important priority” for Mr. Trump but that immigration reform can happen in pieces over time.

“We also know that that can happen later this year and into next year,” she said.
