Hardly any roads, I can't imagine how the workers and supplies would even access long remote stretches of the border. The terrain is brutal, as is the weather for much of the year.
Easy. Trump will build hotel/casinos all along the boarder to house the workers, and air lift supplies in to the heliport on the top of each building. All billed to Mexico of course.

Trump has taken the Two Santa Claus Theory a step further. For a man who so unabashedly celebrates his own greed, he is proving himself quite generous to the general public (with other people’s money, of course). Rather than choosing between spending and tax cuts, he’s giving voters pretty much everything they want, price tags and deficits be damned.

To hear someone say, I can get along with putin because I deal with politicians all the time is equally as mind boggling. The scary thing, for me, is there are so many people, yes, here in CD that I do not think are stupid and they are supporting him.

As for 10,000 people in the crowd, has it dawned on you and others, how many might be being paid to be there?
Paid to be there? Lol

Someone mentioned that any payment of the tens of billions of dollars that get sent to Mexico from illegals and citizens could get seized. In any case my personal opinion is that the wall would be a shared cost.

Did your idol happen to mention what the millions of people who have Obamacare are going to do when your messiah gets rid of Obamacare?

Were there any details on how Trump would help the Vets or was this just more of Trump's vague platitudes?

I ask you because you are the one so excited. Surely you can fill us in with the details because anyone can say they want to make America great without having a specific clue as how to carry through.
Check the policies on his website for more specific information.

Trump is the only candidate that can fill venues with this many people like this now.

King Hillary can barely manage a few hundred. (and they expect dinner or something too.)

No, they wouldn't. Nobody wants government insurance. We would be better off with what we had before! People were happy, for the most part. Nobody wanted the government to take over health insurance and health care. Nobody!

Nobody? That's not what the data says: Kaiser Family Foundation - Health Policy Research, Analysis, Polling, Facts, Data and Journalism

Also, the line about "government takeover" is false: PolitiFact's Lie of the Year: 'A government takeover of health care'

The o'baggers here whining about Trump are hilarious in their incredibly ironic postings considering the fool they put in the white house. None of them are smart enough to even recognize it about themselves.

ACA isn't government insurance, also, nobody wants government insurance is incorrect.

People with pre-existing conditions would definitely have something to say about this absurd statement, and it wouldn't be pretty. Not to mention the millions who were screwed over by junk policies.
