Donald Trump to order construction of Mexican wall and a temporary ban on refugees from seven Muslim countries

President Donald Trump is expected to order the construction of the Mexican border wall on Wednesday and sign executive orders that include a temporary ban on most refugees.

Mr Trump will visit the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday where it is thought he will order federal funds to be allocated towards the building of a wall, one of his signature campaign promises, along America's southern border with Mexico.

Mr Trump's insistence that Mexico would pay for the wall was among his most popular proposals on the campaign trail, sparking enthusiastic cheers at his raucous rallies.

Mexico has repeatedly said it will not pay for any border wall. Earlier this month, Trump said the building project would initially be paid for with a congressionally approved spending bill and Mexico will eventually reimburse the U.S., though he has not specified how he would guarantee payments.

This has got to be one of the most horrible and backward suggestions, I've eve heard anyone say. Building walls to keep people out????
They're fucking humans, not cattle!

The Wall is meaningless.  Ninety percent of the people who enter illegally come in through ports-of-entry on visitor's visas, and then simply stay...which they will continue to do if the incentive persists.

But Trump has to build a wall because he has made such an issue over it.  He evades most of his broken promises by way of lies, but even he realizes he can't avoid this one by saying he didn't say it.  It was his signature.

So he will spend $26-trillion to cover his own ass...and no, Mexico won't pay for it.  What he is talking about there is paper-shuffling, and I thought he said he was kicking all paper-shufflers out of Washington.

The more I see of Trump the more I think he is actually insane.

Idea

"Building a wall" is more symbolic than anything else for Trump and his trumpettes...

There is simply no way that an American president can legally force the Mexican gov't to pay for a "wall" that they neither need nor want..

In the same way that the Aussie guvm'nt makes a big noise about "stopping the boats !" (when meanwhile, 95% of illegal migrants are flying in on tourist visas, and then over-staying..), and spends $$hundreds of millions$$ on foreign detention centres in the process;  the Trump team is simply providing a convenient but cynical sop to all their scared little ignorant supporters who want to believe that foreigners are stealing their jobs, killing their wimmin' folk, and raping their hors3s and cattle -- willing to waste $$billions$$ of taxpayers funds for no actual gains.         Suspect

But then he quickly adds,

DJT wrote:"...there's more than one way to make Mexico pay."

With that little trailer, he is showing you his shell game. He means that he will shuffle some paper around and redefine some funds to become "payments".

What that is, is the same old Washington doublespeak...or, as Kellyanne Conway likes to call it, alternate facts. You see, Trump, who promised to drain the swamp, is just putting the sludge back into the pond.

Washington lies? It still lies. Just another, much bigger liar is in there.
