Uhhh.... your article makes no mention that Democrats are “hide[ing] the fact that the wall is being built”....

There is a crisis at the Southern border and it's considered a national emergency. I don't see a problem with this

I am glad someone still defends the Constitution.

i am guessing you knew that but maybe you are quick enough after all.
"Umm, Tariffs are paid by the consumer not the exporting country," so are taxes UMM!

If you DON'T buy goods made in Mexico, you do NOT "pay for the tariffs.

No one is FORCING you to buy from Mexico so it is a VOLUNTARY thing.

You mean how much in taxes have Americans paid for goods from Mexico?

Derka durr...
"Congress didn’t vote for this." Yes they did, when they wrote the laws and the Constitution.

The Supreme Court has ruled Trump CAN move construction money from 1 project to another.

Having worked as a Project Manger for Uncle Sam, I KNEW he could because we did it ALL the time.

Looks like you will be demoted for "your Lordship".

And you did what when you worked for Uncle Sam?

A 25' path isn't going to hurt the wildlife in the desert. Not even rattlesnakes.

I'm saying NO ONE running for ANY office doesn't "lie". Sheesh!

Maybe he should take the $2,500 SAVINGS EVERY American was PROMISED by obama to get when O Care was passed. I'm STILL waiting for mine.
I'd bet you NEVER complained when dems lie during campaigns. Sounds like a hypocrite to me!

Throwing garbage everywhere is considered recycling by illegals; therefore, it's ok. Lol
