  • Trump states today that he knows more about wall and border tech than anyone.

    He also knows more about ISIS than General Matt and anyone who might replace him.

    and at least 19 more...

      We should build one along the 49th and get the states to pay for it.

      • Trump is off his meds this morning.

        He is lashing out and claiming to have executive powers that he does not possess.

        Trump threatens to close southern border, ‘go back to pre-NAFTA’ without wall funding

        We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with. Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!

        ...The United States looses soooo much money on Trade with Mexico under NAFTA, over 75 Billion Dollars a year (not including Drug Money which would be many times that amount), that I would consider closing the Southern Border a “profit making operation.” We build a Wall or.....

        .....close the Southern Border. Bring our car industry back into the United States where it belongs. Go back to pre-NAFTA, before so many of our companies and jobs were so foolishly sent to Mexico. Either we build (finish) the Wall or we close the Border......
        remember who owns the shutdown...



        Trump is such an excellent negotiator, only the best deals. He buys a hole in the ground and then when he realizes that he is in a hole, his solution is to dig faster and deeper.

          • Trump responds to reporters' questions about his concerns for government employees who could be off work for months, who have rent to pay, medical bills and need to buy food.



            He told them, "let them eat wall..."

            • Increasing prices for Americans on goods from Mexico is NOT "Mexico will pay for the wall". It is a tax on the American people.


              No, Mexico isn't paying for border wall through USMCA trade deal, despite Donald Trump's claims
              https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-m...all-despite-d/
              The question here is: Is Mexico paying for the wall through a renegotiated trade deal, as Trump claimed?

              No, trade experts say.

              There are a couple of immediate problems with Trump’s statement.

              First, the renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement is not in effect yet. Trump rebranded the updated NAFTA as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), but it still needs congressional approval.

              And the deal, literally, does not include any language saying Mexico will pay the United States for the wall.

              In addition, U.S.-Mexico trade has been duty free for more than a decade, and the renegotiated trade deal does not add new tariffs on goods coming from Mexico to the United States, said Lori Wallach, director at Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch.

              "I do not see any scenario under which the U.S. government gets more money from Mexico per se — and even if the U.S. tariffs had been raised, that would be paid by Mexican importers not the Mexican government," Wallach said.

              Trump’s claim that wall costs will be covered through trade isn’t new. But it is wrong.
              Back on the campaign trail, Trump claimed that Mexico can afford to build a wall because the country's trade deficit with America is billions of dollars. We rated that False as trade experts said there is no connection between the size of the trade deficit and finding money to build the wall. The trade deficit is based mostly on trading and investment by private individuals and companies — not the government itself, an expert then told us.

              Trump’s latest claim hinges on changes negotiated for NAFTA by the three parties involved in the trade agreement — the United States, Mexico and Canada.

              As we’ve already said, the renegotiated version of the trade agreement is not in effect yet. It has to clear several logistical hurdles and be approved by the legislative bodies of all three countries. If approved, it would likely take effect around 2020. Until then, NAFTA remains in place.

                • Fox News' Chris Wallace Shuts Down Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ Claim About Terrorists Crossing Border
                  ‘They’re not coming across the southern border, Sarah,’ the ‘Fox News Sunday’ host told Sarah Huckabee Sanders.



                  The Fox News Sunday host played a clip of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen claiming that her agency has stopped over 3,000 “special interest aliens”—anyone who comes from a country that has ever produced a terrorist—”trying to come into the country on the southern border,” and informed that press secretary that President Trump’s own State Department has found “no credible evidence” of any terrorists coming across the border from Mexico.

                  But Sanders doubled down, saying, “We know that roughly, nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegally and we know that our most vulnerable point of entry is at our southern border.”

                  “Wait, wait, wait,” Wallace said, stopping her there. “Because, I know the statistic. I didn’t know if you were going to use it, but I studied up on this. Do you know where those 4,000 people come—where they are captured? Airports.”


                  As Sanders replied, “Not always,” Wallace interjected and repeated, “Airports,” adding,“The State Department says there hasn’t been any terrorists that they’ve found coming across the southern border with Mexico.”

                            • A young Donald Trump explains why he cut down the cherry tree...



                              "Father, I cannot tell a lie, the previous four Presidents all told me they wanted to cut down the cherry tree too."

                              Trump claimed ex-presidents told him they wanted to build a wall. Four of them say it’s not true.

                              “This should have been done by all of the presidents that preceded me,” Trump said. “And they all know it. Some of them have told me that we should have done it.”

                              The president has made 7,600 false or misleading statements since he became president, and some have proved more difficult than others to fact-check. This one was not. There are only four living ex-presidents. The Washington Post reached out to them to see whether they ever told Trump that a border wall should have been built before he was in office: All said they hadn’t. A spokesman for former president George H.W. Bush declined to comment, saying it was too soon for Bush, who died in November, to be “dragged into such debates."

                              It is true that border walls hold a special place in former president George W. Bush’s legacy. The Secure Fence Act, which he signed into law, paved the way for 700 miles of fences along stretches of the border. But spokesman Freddy Ford told reporters that Bush had not discussed the wall with Trump.

                              Reality check: More terror suspects have entered the U.S. from Canada than from Mexico

                              President Donald Trump and his officials persist in promoting the discredited notion that suspected terrorists are pouring into the U.S. from Mexico by the thousands.

                              Despite their portrayal of Mexico as a teeming portal for terrorists, the State Department issued a report in September finding “no credible evidence indicating that international terrorist groups have established bases in Mexico, worked with Mexican drug cartels or sent operatives via Mexico into the United States.”
                              https://globalnews.ca/news/4824976/u...orists-canada/

                              THE FACTS: If they’re driving in through border crossings, no wall would stop them. But as to his broader point, U.S. officials have not cited evidence of a terrorist influx from Mexico.


                              State Department reports on terrorism have expressed more concern about Canada, which unlike Mexico has been home to “violent extremists inspired by terrorist groups such as ISIS and al-Qaida and their affiliates and adherents,” as it said in 2017. When it comes to land crossings, Canada has more often been the source of terrorism suspects entering the U.S., though not in great numbers. By far the majority of people who arouse concern try to enter by air.

                              The libertarian CATO Institute (Founded by Charles Koch, CEO of the conglomerate Koch Industries) said that from 1975 through 2017, seven people who entered the U.S. illegally from “special interest” countries — states tied at least loosely to terrorism — were convicted of planning attacks on U.S. soil. None crossed from Mexico. They came from Canada or jumped ship in U.S. ports, and all before special interest countries were classified as such. The plots were foiled and no one was hurt.


                              The only known terrorists who crossed illegally from Mexico in those decades were three ethnic Albanians from Macedonia who came as children with their parents in 1984 and, in their 20s, were arrested in the foiled plot to attack the Fort Dix, New Jersey, Army base in 2007, the CATO study found. They were not from a special-interest country.

                              • Sarah Sanders claims that 4,000 people on the terrorist watch list were stopped (not arrested) at the southern border in the past year. The actual number? 6. And being on the list doesn't mean you're a terrorist. Just ask the late senator Ted Kennedy about that. He was misidentified as someone who was on the selectee list, a list of people that are given additional security screenings. No, he wasn't on it but he was mistaken for someone who was. So there's no proof that any of those six at the Mexican border were arrested or turned away.
