Sources at the White House have said that President Donald Trump's controversial wall at the US/Mexican border is finished.
It's not clear what's meant by this, however.
It could be 'finished' in the sense that, the wall has, during recent weeks, undergone massive construction along the length of the 1,954-mile border, and has now been completed.
Conversely, it could mean that, after opposition to the project at every stage, and a stubborn refusal by the Democrats to authorise public funds for its payment, the president and his team have decided that the time has come to abandon the idea as it is no longer feasible.
It might have been clearer had the announcement from the White House been that:
"President Trump's wall is up"
although, this might also have been confusing.
The use of the word 'up' could have meant that the wall was now built, and operational, or, like a concept that is no longer viable, and has been shelved.
All these 'double meanings' are so confusing!
