"The president still says "wall" - oftentimes frankly he'll say "barrier" or 'fencing, ' now he's tended toward steel slats", Kelly said.
Trump still said "wall' for most of the last two years".
President Donald Trump threatened Friday to seal the US-Mexico border "entirely" if Congress does not approve billions of dollars in funding for a wall.
As he called for Democrats to negotiate on the wall, Trump brushed off criticism that his administration bore any responsibility for the recent deaths of two migrant children in Border Patrol custody.
Amidst the government shutdown over border security funding, Trump took to Twitter Saturday to accuse Democrats as being culpable in the death of two migrant children who have died in U.S. custody.
'It is a silly semantic argument because people who just want to say wall, wall, wall, wanted to be a four-letter word, ' she said on 'Fox News Sunday'.

Kate wore a red custom-made Catherine Walker dress coat with a burgundy collar and matching hat, and a red clutch by Mulberry. They are expected to join the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for the annual church service at St Mary Magdalene on Christmas Day.
The threat yet again upped the ante in a political row that has led to a partial shutdown of the United States government and seems set to dominate the start to the third year of Trump's presidency.
Kelly said the solid concrete wall Trump had touted throughout his campaign and early administration was a past plan, and the president was embracing plans for other types of structures.
Pelosi's spokesman, Drew Hammill, said in a statement on Friday that Democrats "are united against the President's immoral, ineffective and expensive wall - the wall that he specifically promised that Mexico would pay for".
"We on the Republican side do not want to vote for a bill the president won't sign", Senator Pat Roberts, a Kansas Republican, told reporters in the Capitol Thursday. According to reports, Pelosi has been spotted at Hawaii's Fairmont Orchid resort, where rooms prices start from $899 to $4,899 for the presidential suite.
Despite Trump's threat, the United States this month announced a new collaboration with Mexico on a program to curb migration from Central American countries, with much of the $US10.6 billion ($15 billion) USA contribution to be drawn from existing aid programs.
The White House is still in the midst of a battle over funding for the border wall, which is expected to pick up Wednesday, when Congress returns to Washington, D.C. after their holiday.
And incoming White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney appeared in an interview Friday to say that while Schumer has been open to negotiations, "It's Nancy Pelosi preventing that from happening". Democrats rejected it, refusing to go above $1.3 billion in border security funding that would not include a wall.
One bipartisan proposal is to provide $5.7 billion in funding for the border wall, as well as a congressional reauthorization of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for those brought to the US illegally as children, along with some other immigration provisions.
