Trump's Wall

#1 Post by Jamiet99uk » Fri Dec 21, 2018 4:40 pm

I'm confused. Why is there a dispute about getting the Senate to approve funds for Donald Trump's border wall?

Didn't he promise that Mexico would pay for it?

The above explains some of it. Trump can't force another sovereign country to pay for something they don't want. But as former Sec. of State Tillerman explained, Trump doesn't understand the law and what he can legally do.

"And Tillerson, too, was stunned at Trump's seeming lack of knowledge about not only basic geopolitics but the rule of law. "So often, the President would say here's what I want to do and here's how I want to do it, and I would have to say to him, 'Mr. President I understand what you want to do but you can't do it that way. It violates the law',""

Mexico needs to step up custom checkpoints to stop the US from smuggling firearms into Mexico.

Trump staff claimed border wall needed to protect most vulnerable point against terrorists. From Fox News interview the truth that almost all the 4000 suspects in the past year came by airplanes through regulated airports. Pnly 6 were from Mexico, so the wall would have been $1 billion per possible terrorist.

No wonder Trump's businesses had so many financial failures with poor allocation of money.

So why isn't Trump pushing for more money where it's needed and not paying TSA employees through the shutdown?
