Has the border wall construction begin

I came across a news article titled Has the Border Wall Begun, and this article mentioned that president Donald Trump declared that the construction of the wall between the United States and Mexico has began. This article included a picture that was described as an image of the construction of the Border wall. Therefore, I wanted to verify and check both the article and the image that was included as well. I used politifact.com to verify both the article and the image that has been used. The used image on this article has been tweeted by Donald Trump, and he stated that the image as “great briefing this afternoon on the start of our southern border wall!”. Politifact.com mentioned that this article is mostly false, and it mentioned that there are undergoing projects to replace fencing but that doesn’t include any constructions for the border wall supported by the Donald Trump administration. “There are projects underway along parts of the border to improve or replace fencing, but none of that includes any of the eight border wall prototypes ordered by the Trump administration.” (Valverde, 2018). Also, the image that Donald Trump tweeted isn’t for the border wall construction as he mention; rather, the image was for the construction to improve the fencing.verification
