To liberals, 5 billion for a wall protecting from an invasion of illegals from the south is a travesty, but 50 billion in pallets of cash to Iran, the worlds leading funder of terrorism, was zero's prerogative.

An actual border wall is orders of magnitudes more expensive than $5 B.....try trillions.

Five billion is only going to cover a fraction of a percent of our Southern border.

Manufactured crisis? Are you serious? Even the Democrats finally admitted that there was a crisis at our border with thousands after thousands coming in caravans all at once.

In the original article, the Pentagon says $3.6 billion will pay for 175 miles.

Where do your "trillions" come from?

There is no plan to build a wall along our entire border. Where have you been? Trump just wants to fix the flimsy fencing that was built under Obama which was supposed to be for 700 miles of double barriers on the most porous areas of the border and build an additional 300 miles of the good walls. That's only half of the border, duh. The rest is mostly impassable terrain so fewer will try to cross in those areas and fewer will succeed. The Border Patrol can focus their efforts more in those areas.

Pushing? The Democrats won't cooperate on anything. Pay attention. Build the wall!

The ones cheering the hardest now are going to be the ones squealing like stuck pigs when the next Democratic president follows precedents set by Trump. Just watch.
