Zero miles of new border wall built since Trump took office


But I guess the idea of new walls will drive people to the polls next November.

If Trump merely tells his marks that new sections have been built, that's good enough for the gullible who believed in the lunacy in the first place.

It's a "metaphorical wall," and it always has been. Apparently.

None of these people live in anything resembling reality. But to be fair, that's way too big a word for any of Trump's base, let alone Trump, to understand.

It's on scheduled as planned. Sections are being built daily. It's big and really beautiful. Many people are saying it's the biggest wall ever built. And best of all we are still having Mexico pay for it. If you hear anything differently that's the fake media being unpatriotic and committing treason. They treat me so unfairly. If they don't like my new wall they should probably leave the country.

Obama didn't build a wall while he was in office. But do you hear liberals saying anything about that?

But I will bet plenty of Taxpayer funds have been funneled into the pockets of trump cronies.

It's the biggest and most beautiful wall in history. And in case it isn't, it's the fault of America-hating Democ-rats:
Another official blamed Democrats for obstructing progress. He told the newspaper: “The wall projects are moving along as quickly as practicably possible given the unprecedented obstruction from Democrat lawmakers to protect and prolong open borders.”

It's like an elementary school playground when it's recess time for the first grade. Is America a nation really capable of self-government any more?

It's scary how many parallels there are between Trump and the new British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.

They are both lying narcissistic adulterous buffoons.
While Trump fails to build the 'Mexican-sponsored' wall, Johnson 'built' an imaginary bridge, costing taxpayers millions.

Trump is trying to claim that rebuilding existing wall sections counts as new walls.
