    Didn't T'Rump say Mexico would pa for the wall? ... Did not the President elect say Mexico would possible pay with a check? Did he say the dividends from the renamed deal between Canada, the US, and Mexico would pay for the wall? Why is the US government shutdown based on the US government not funding the wall?

    What would you do when 4000 Americans were killed by illegal Mexicans and heroin, crack and meth come in here with drug gangs, along with human trafficking? Yet you promised to "Protect and Defend America" when you were voted in? But you weren't, Trump was, and its his job to protect us from those things, add to it a war we have with the middle east, so anyone could walk over the border and bring weapons, explosives, etc. at any time. What would you do? . . . . . crickets from the peanut gallery.

    Please ask Nancy Pelosi , Chuck Schumer , Bernie Sanders & Elizabeth Warren to file class action lawsuit about Trumps shutdown of American economy, calculations include late fees on credit cards for disruption of economy This last straw in his dismantling of infrastructure beginning with epa and ending with freezing American economy as a test to his empowered dictatorship! ?!;}?
    By quoting divine law of “do ye unto others as ye would have others do unto you”, is it appropriate for general public to file class action lawsuit against Trump Tyranny freezing his assets? Thought founding fathers set up constitutional safeguards protecting nation from foul power fiends taking control of government? Trump’s not a satisfactory father of nation. People are going to let evil dysfunctional dictator starve US families because he wants to waste budget on building giant wall across north America? Has Mueller investigation proven that Russia hacked election for Trump to attack USA internally from presidential office?
    Please mention to representatives that constituents would counter offer wall idea with proposal of solarCulture wavelength selective photovoltaic ozonation, ultra violet pyramids on energy grid🌞hydrogen fuel cell powered train stations from Alaska to Central America? Solar Fountains of Peace⛲️free pure water for all... Environmentalists advocate for migration of wildlife saying Trump’s wall would be problematic for animals in nature causing inevitable death to endangered species & drainage flooding issues. Trump shut down epa? so there’s no one to assess environmental impact of flooding drainage issues potentially drowning wildlife with cement wall spanning north america coast to coast... plus if he’s not paying coast guard immigrants could just sail around wall?

    Trump owns this shutdown completely. First by bringing up the stupid idea of a useless wall and finally by declaring it is his responsibility.
    He really shows how much he cares about the American people, most of all about the people who now have to work without pay or those millions who will have to do without food stamps.

    Trump paid 20 million dollars for eight prototype walls that's. They are thirty feet high and twenty five feet wide.
    That's 528 million dollars a mile in my book. Ten miles would cost five billion dollars.
    That steel slat wall looks pretty all right but I promise you I could breach that wall and repair it in less than a half hour and after I did a few probably less than 15 minutes.
    Trump has got to realize he is in 2018 not 1918

    best is to STOP fundings to Israel gov, focus on locals issues, and my advise to US n Donald, never side with Israel gov, they are e real cause of US problems and dont waste funds on illegal state of IIsrael full stop, focus only on local issues in US.

  • zainuddin brahim
    zainuddin brahim 10 days ago

    i really suspect had a plan and using wall as a request, and he wanted Israel to fund him instead, remember who start e wall idea, its Israel's pm Ben, so i am not suprised if Donald or Mike might ask funds from Israel's funding, now...if Trump can clears this, he stop fundings Israel for the walls, not he must regret wasting funds to fund illegal Israel state and those embassies should and must be taken away from Israel, and in fact must be return to its rightful state, which is Palestine. only then fundings is appropriate for e so-called wall or border security. which in fact just need a watch tower to cover each elevations or borders.

    It fills the left with rage to see a wealthy person with a massive yacht. You hear all the rhetoric. No one needs that kind of money ! What about all the mouths that could have been fed for the cost of that yacht? You see obscene wealth, I see JOBS ! Someone made that yacht. Someone took a risk, invested time and money, hired accountants, sales, marketing, finance, engineers, electricians, shipping and receiving clerks, quality control, fabricators, carpenters, trucking, packaging. THIS IS THE US ECONOMY ! Thousands of jobs went into making that yacht, thousands of families have earned a living !

    The last comment about "his wall" and then had a talking session about building the "wall" of steel, and the date he had this press discussion, January 4th, 2019, the day AFTER he lost control of the entire Congress with the House going to the Democrats! Really? You think enough of us just missed the last 2 years where your only legislative victory was giving the rich and super rich, a tax cut, probably you getting the most out of it! And, it only cost the Nation $2 TRILLION, added to the National Debt!

    Steel is stronger than concrete?! In what context?! I mean, okay, if you wanted to build wire or cables for bridges, steel is definitely stronger than concrete in tension, and it's certainly more ductile than concrete, which means that in bending, it might not break as suddenly... but for straight compressive strength?! Or in a wall context?! Really?! Trump condescends to that female reporter about not knowing anything about construction, but yeah, I'll bet she knows more than he just proved he knows about it.

    During the campaign, Trump was generally vague about how Mexico would pay for the wall, saying, "They will pay in one form or another." But he also floated a number of specific ideas about how Mexico would pay for it.
    An August 2015 campaign position paper said "Mexico must pay for the wall and, until they do," the U.S. would "impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages," increase fees on visas and ports of entry into the U.S., and possibly implement tariffs or cut aid.
    An April 2016 campaign memo outlined similar ways of pressuring Mexico. That plan explicitly said Mexico would make "a one-time payment of $5 - 10 billion" for the wall.
    The memo also proposed threatening to block remittances from Mexican nationals in the U.S. back to Mexico - which the campaign said amounted to $24 billion a year. The plan was to then "tell Mexico that if the Mexican government will contribute the funds needed to the United States to pay for the wall," the rule blocking the money transfers would not be enacted.
