Trump has been talking about the Wall since the campaign trail,
Trump says, ” Do not worry we are going to build the wall okay “
” Don’t even think of it”
” Well we have been thinking about it and we have some “
Questions, Five to be exact. First, What would Trump’s wall actually look like? On the campaign trail in 2015, Trump was clear that his wall was of the cement block variety.
” I’ll tell you what it’s gonna be made of, it’s gonna be made of hardened concrete impenetrable physical, tall and powerful”. But his view started to shift in the last year(2018).
” The problem is you have to have see-through you have to know what’s on the other side of the wall “
More recently Trump has said that his wall will look more like artistically designed steel slats you can see through.
” If I build a steel wall rather than a concrete wall, it will actually be stronger than concrete. Steel is stronger than concrete “
Question Number Two, how much of a wall already exists? One-third of the U.S. Mexico border already has some sort of barrier, that is about 600 miles are already covered with a fence. The border is 1,900 miles long, the trump’s proposed wall would be 1,000 miles. Natural obstacles will take care of the rest.
Question Number Three, how much will it cost? In 2017 Trump said, it would cost ten billion dollars or less than, Same year elite homeland security document reported it would cost twenty-one point six billion. Other estimates are much much higher, Today Trump is asking Congress for the 5.6 billion, is such a small number.
Which brings us to Question Number Four, who is going to pay for this?
Trump – ” And Mexico will pay for the wall “
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox said- ” We are not paying for that stupid wall, Build it if you want with the US taxpayers money “
Trump now has said, he can get the money from other government agencies. The President asked every one of his cabinet secretaries to look for funding that can be used. The Democrats have pushed back saying, this won’t happen without congressional approval.
Speaking of Democrats, what do they want on the border? Well they say, they’d spend some money on border security, but according to
” Nancy Pelosi they’re not doing a wall that nobody
