Chinese has six simple words to describe something unrealistic: 鏡中花,水中月;flowers in the mirror or moon in the water. These things are merely images. They are not real.

One by one, Trump’s election promises have become flowers in the mirror or moon in the water. They are merely words from a politician because politician’s promises are meant to be broken, Trump or no Trump. 

Last year, Trump has repeatedly said that he’ll build a tall and beautiful wall and he insisted that Mexico would pay for it. He then said that he’ll ask Congress to pay for that beautiful wall using American tax money. Now, he changed his mind and said that he will not seek funding for the wall now.

Maybe we can call Trump’s border wall: 霧中牆 or a wall in the fog; now you see it, now you don’t.

We’ll lump our three expressions together to emphasize that Trump’s election promise is just that: out from Trump’s mouth and into your ears. 

Nothing to it. No big deal. Don’t lose any sleep over it. We are used to your lies.

鏡中花,水中月,霧中牆。

By the way, has the White House received all the designs of the border wall yet?
