As if he gives a fk about people OD'ing.

Wonder if he'd be so vociferous if Adderall came through the border...?

Trump tweeted it as:

@realDonaldTrump

We lose 300 Americans a week, 90% of which comes through the Southern Border.
That is utterly indecipherable.

I do wish the media would now call it a fence rather than a wall. That would infuriate him
that would be probably be good fun.

This is sad news. It's being reported as:
A not-small number of people in rural eastern California love to ride their jacked-up vehicles around the desert & seethe with anger at public lands that don't let them. This is their revenge against what they see as a park service that denies them their fun.

Interesting letter from a structural engineer / "wall expert" on all the ways the "wall" is terrible.

As has been pointed out by others, the vast majority of illegals living in the US are doing so by simply flying in and then not flying out again. Shop wisely for a bucketshop ticket and it probably wouldn't be much more expensive than a ladder – plus you don't have to walk anywhere near as far.

Remember that trumps protection agents aren't paid overtime because trump already used up all the funding/budget with his constant trips to his properties, golf kart hires etc.

Now the FBI Agents Association has sent a petition to the White House and Congress, signed by representatives of field offices across the country, warning of the effect of the continued government shutdown on agents and their work.

Morale at the FBI had already been steadily declining for months before the government shut down on December 22, according to current and recently departed agents who spoke to me on the condition of anonymity to discuss their feelings candidly. President Trump’s open warfare on the bureau has made agents’ jobs more difficult, they say, as trust in the FBI wanes among people who identify as Republicans and right-leaning independents. “Part of it is Trump’s constant attacks,” said one agent who left late last year. “Bigger than that, though, is that it seems like a portion of the population believes him. Which makes their jobs harder to do.”

It's an awful lot of money to be wasting on a metal fence when $100 or so will get you through it with something like this...

How very prophetic of you...

... testing by DHS in late 2017 showed all eight prototypes, including the steel slats, were vulnerable to breaching, according to an internal February 2018 U.S. Customs and Border Protection report.

Photos of the breaches were not included in a redacted version of the CBP report, which was first obtained in a Freedom of Information Act Request by San Diego public broadcaster KPBS.

Responding to the picture from the South Lawn of the White House on Thursday morning, Trump claimed "that’s a wall designed by previous administrations."

While it is true that previous administrations used this design, the prototype was built during his administration.

"It's very, very hard — the wall that we are doing is very, very hard to penetrate," Trump said.

Also that shows a steel wall goes rusty - hows that trump 'beautiful wall'?

Someone should go back to earlier volumes of this thread and drag up all of the posts where Trumpettes said that the wall was not real, and more of a metaphor. I'm pretty sure there were quite a few of them.

This is a very interesting article

Trumps campaign chief pollster was Tony Fabrizio, who Manafort had worked with before, but had also worked with Mitch McConnell, Joni Ernst, and Rand Paul. It was reported that Trump stiffed Fabrizo's company three-quarters of a million dollars for its services on the Presidential campaign

It also highlights how the Trump campaign and Russia’s Internet Research Agency coordinated and focused their efforts on marginal states such as Michigan and Wisconsin, why the data Manafort handed over was vital to this.

Trump would never use or even understand metaphor.
Apparently he has blamed the situation at home for his decision to pull out of this year's world economic summit at Davos. Yeah, right. Nothing to do with him being utterly incapable of conversing with other world leaders on any level then.
