“We’re building the wall,” he said. “In fact it’s going to start very soon. Way ahead of schedule. It’s way, way, way ahead of schedule.”
See Trump promises border wall ‘soon, way ahead of schedule’Imagine going to a “conservative” gathering and saying a project is “way ahead of schedule” when there’s no budget for it and no schedule… The mind boggles. Does “conservative” have no moral/logical/fiscal basis anymore? Does “conservative” now mean “as flexible as a wet noodle”?
My life is a lot less complicated than POTUS’ but I can tell you with certainty that if I tried to put up a five foot wall around my property, TLW would have my hide. Then there’s Congress, which has a say in how the nation is run and how government is paid for by taxation. There’s also plenty of expert opinion that “the wall” would have no effect on illegal immigration and smuggling other than raising profits. That’s what happened when Congress banned drinking alcohol in the 1920s, what happened when USA declared “war on drugs” in the 1970s and what will happen if Trump manages to build even a five foot fence. I imagine when the bottom line is calculated for the next budget, this damned wall will be the first thing cut to reduce the deficit.
Trump is not so stupid that he doesn’t know smugglers are entrepreneurial, so this is just another lie in a long line of them, about a project of no value except getting elected by haters and lazy voters who are now aroused and angry and going after their congresspeople.
