Only 36 percent of Americans support Trump's wall proposal

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Thu Apr 27, 2017 11:42 pm

Fake President Trump this week pulled back on his initial threats to make funding a wall along the nation's southern border a necessary part of Congress' legislation to prevent a government shutdown. But he promised that "the wall's going to get built, folks," saying that "we're already preparing. We're doing plans, we're doing specifications, we're doing a lot of work on the wall." His administration has in fact already put out preliminary requests for proposals for building parts of the wall, and some firms have already responded with their conceptual plans.

But the American people have little interest in a wall and rate it one of the least important things the president could do at this point. This leaves the president pushing for an objective out of sync with general American public opinion.

This is exactly the sort of thing you're going to see more and more of under a president who won undemocratically.

Compounding that is the fact that he's risking a government shutdown on day 100 of his presidency -- despite the fact his party controls both houses of Congress and the White House. That is unprecedented ineptitude and simply does not happen.

There's a lot more to dislike about him than his undemocratic origins.  Watta ya bet he manages to shut down the government?

He's got one day, let's see if he can manage to get members of his OWN PARTY to support him.

For the first time ever, I'm cheering a shutdown, and only because I think even the Keeping Up With The Kardashians crowd notices that kind of thing.

Suspect

BETWEEN the $$$10s of Billions$$$ that his imaginary "wall" would cost, and the $$$Trillions$$$ that a tax cut for business would lose in gov't revenue,  Trump probably could have covered a lot of healthcare, education and welfare spending over his first term ???        clown   <<< Typical Trumpette
