Hell then do it! Hell with dragging it out through congress and the courts via a national security declaration. The military is better used to defend our borders than invade foreign countries all over the world!

This is another one of those things where Trump would be impeached by Republicans. Because they at least think beyond Trumps term, and realize if you let that cat out of the bag......

I guess you didn't know military members were more than killers. They have many different skills, professions and trades which is why young people are encouraged to join.

If you followed Q you'd have known for over a year that Trump planned to have the Army Corps of Engineers build the wall. He's let the Dems expose their own true motives and hypocrisies.

Right! In fact, nothing was stopping Obama for having the military provide health care, if Obamacare hadn't passed. Except maybe that medical skills and construction skills aren't necessary the job of the military, and most aren't trained in it.

You are woefully uninformed. Most are trained for basic medical skills. And they have a ton of medics, and Drs. Additionally there are 37,000 folks in the us combat engineers. While there arent enough to provide healthcare, they certainly would have the ability to expand to do so.
