President Trump in a tweet on Sunday stressed his promised wall as the key to border security, saying "drones and all of the rest are wonderful and lots of fun."

“The only way to stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking, criminal elements and much else from coming into our Country is with a Wall or Barrier,” he said.
===========================================
He further stated that 'a good old fashioned wall' was the only effective way to deal with the criminal & diseased hoards from the south.

Look how well walls worked for the Chinese 500 years ago: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Wall_of_China

Better yet, show them a map of the region where the wall is supposed to be built.

Along the Rio Grande, farmers will not have access to land for foraging their cattle or getting to water. Ted Cruz should be screaming about this but he is behaving as the typical hypocrite he is.

How many mountains or mountainous terrain does the wall have to pass through?

Drugs?! The overwhelming majority of drugs come in by boat. And by majority I mean over 95%. BUILD THAT OCEAN WALL!

People also own land that has been in their family for generations that spans both sides of the border. Will the wall just cut through their property? There are going to be a lot of imminent domain court cases.

And a boom in boat building industries and amateur tunnel building

The majority of addicting drugs - opioids - are manufactured right here by Big Pharma. Trumps donors.

What has Trump done to end the US opioid scourge?

It is Democrats who are completely and totally terrified that walls will work. Doesn't have anything to do with what China did 500 years ago.

To be fair, Trump signed some legislation in October to help fund research for nonaddictive alternatives to opioids.

Ted Cruz gave his balls and his dignity to Trump who keeps both in a safe. He is worse than a coward.

Is there a plan yet for this great Trump wall?
Is there a public plan with what's going where and how much it will cost?
Is there a plan out there with the FMV of privately owned property?
Has there been any estimates of what the land cost will be?
I say show me a ****ing plan at least before you want my money?
I would hope more people on either side would want to at least see a plan....then again maybe I'm wrong in that assumption and people just want words without thought and actual action.
