Ok this thread is silly.

Nobody thought we were going to get the money from Mexico before we start building the wall - well only dummies thought that. It was always clear to me he meant we would recoup the cost either from a renegotiation of NAFTA, or tariffs.

I have also seen some of you suggest he said he would get the wall built fast - but implied that was a lie. Um - first he's not in office yet - second he is asking for money to build it now before he is in office which suggests he wants to start building it asap - How much faster could he get it built? - Go back in time?

Also the idea that a wall is useless is pretty stupid. Let me ask you this do prisons have walls?

Of course a wall won't keep everyone out - but it slows them down, and with surveillance a small group of border patrol will be able to catch the vast majority who try to go over or under. No it won't stop someone from digging a tunnel from a mile away, but nothing is full proof.

This whole thread is more desperate bashing of Trump to try and discredit him - and it is a miserable failure.

Trump does everything fast. That's why he likes twitter. He can zip those lies out in nanosecs. A house built on sand will fall.

This time will go down in psychological history books. People like you, that write these deep, long thoughts built on twitter comments and one liner pep rallies. And you want the rest of us to follow along? Now, that is desperate.

This "wall" idea is an exercise in futility and a waste of money.

If we want to keep the criminals out, then stop buying their drugs. I guess that is too inconvenient, and Americans can't be inconvenienced, right? Disgusting.

I can't wait until the trump admin is slapped with all the imminent domain lawsuits of trying to build on private American citizens' lands.

No one discredits Trump like Trump's own words/actions, just on the campaign trail.

We already have those though. How are they working out so far?
that's because the wrong people are in charge.

The "wrong people" also deported more illegals than any other administration.

Again, innovate the world. Benz did not change the scope of the world last I checked.
Very truthful


You are dragging this off topic but you said invent, not me. Why don't you just admit that like Trump, you spoke without actually checking what you were saying was correct? Makes no difference to me personally, but you are the one asking for truth.

What hand outs are you referring to? Illegal immagants cannot apply for public assistance.


Same ole rhetoric. Just like saying poor people make money by having kids. It's just ignorance.

I dont care how its paid for, just build it already. Im in California, we are drowning with illegals, and the drain on our social systems. In the long run it will pay for itself many times over.

What exactly is the point of a wall? Mexicans have ladders... And shovels.. Just seems so pointless.


Ask Mexico, they have one on their southern border. So, why didn't they build one on their northern border?

While you are at it, try asking them how successful that wall has been.

At the same time they walk right in. Big problem. Shut it down.

Of course. Typical conservative attitude can't give a liberal credit where it is due. "Obama sucks!"

Considering a good number of illegal immigrants are actually from countries south of Mexico I would say that wall isn't the best example to use.
