Or stop the wall at their reservation lines and they can deal with the drug cartels and illegal themselves. Let's see if they'll be so devoted to their tribal lands then rather than the national interest.

A fake number remains fake no matter how many times you post it, right-winger.

Not really. Keep in mind that this type of project would take at least 20 or more years to complete as each state would be responsible for their own barrier installations. Compared to other nations, the US currently takes too much time spending money to think about a project, rather than starting it and dealing with issues as they arise.

So you want to force elderly people, the physically disabled, parents of young children and temporarily unemployed people (who get on welfare when UI doesn't meet their financial means, which effectively prevents them from finding a new job to get off assistance) among others to build this wall?

And who's paying for their housing when they temporarily relocate, as well as pay for their transportation, child care and other needs while they're onsite?

And who's going to pay and take care of their housing and other arrangements back home?

Who's going to pay for their job training? You want random welfare receipents to build a complex piece of infrastructure?

Do his supporters even think before posting or is that a prerequisite to be a supporter of his?

But that's just off the top of my head and I like to deal in facts and like to be informed...I don't need daddy Trump to make it all better by punishing the scary libs and the scarier brown people....but then again, that's just me....

don't bother with these types of questions. They prefer inflammatory remarks with little though behind them...details are for losers.....look at who they elected....

Seriously anyone that is being honest that has seen the pace that politics have worked in the past has to be impressed, Democrat or Republican.

But I understand many people aren't thinking at all right now as they are responding out of their emotions.


You don't like Trump. We get it.

Any true leader that does what needs to be done in this country is going to face the type of outlash that he is receiving. Bravo Trump! Pretty impressive thus far.

Every whine is satisfying to the soul in that something is being done.


Yes drastic change is needed to stop the titanic from hitting the iceberg. Sorry if you can't see it.
You understand that I LIKE Trump, right? Trump 2020!~
