    Republicans had the WH, Senate and House for the first two years of Trump's presidency. They managed to pass no meaningful legislation outside of a tax cut for the wealthy.

    There was 649 miles of border wall built prior to Trump becoming president.

    The US Mexican border is approximately 2000 miles long.

    Prior to Trump making it one of his policy points, I didn’t even know there was that much wall except for certain areas.

    So much this. How quickly people forget. Yet they place their hope in some new magical red wave. LOL.

    Cons had their chance with the house, senate, and white house and blew it all on a stupid tax cut on the wealthy that our children will be paying for for years.

    Is he running on MAGA? Cause he's had 4 years to do it and we are worse now than we were in 2016....

    Is there a link to the Mexican contribution to the wall. My understanding was that it would not be at the American taxpayer’s expense

    Republicans are living in a bubble and not understanding what is happening around them, we can thank 2016 for this. The results in November are not going to be pretty for them and they are going to be caught completely off guard not understanding what happened. They don't realize that 2016 was the outlier, not the norm.

    History? The polling averages were not that far off in 2016 but it was unique because it didn't just change a candidate projected to win by 9 to actually winning by 4, it was just close enough that Hillary was projected to win and Trump won instead. It was also unique because it was two of the most unpopular people running against each other. Trump also lost the popular vote but was put in the White House due to the electoral college, that's happened in very few presidential elections. It was really a perfect storm that helped Trump win and if that's what you think is the norm then reality is going to set in on November 3rd.

    Some of it is refurbished, but many miles of new wall has been built. 216 miles of new wall is the right answer.

    Border Wall progress: What’s been built so far?

    The length of the Mexico US border is just under 2000 miles. 200 miles is a drop in the bucket, but dude pounds his chest.

    Child freaking puh lease. Typical of fraudulent RE developers, not that i would know anything about that.

    "I know that my income ratios and occupancy ratios don't meet lending standards, but I'm the great and glorious me. If you won't do this deal, I'll find someone who will." And he will, because there are whores everywhere. Stormy Daniels for example?

    How many times do you think I've heard that BS lie bully attack over the decades? And again, multiply me by the rest of the USA.

    Insane in the membrane.

    I would go for “maybe”. I think T voters are lying, again, in the polls. It’s gonna be much closer than it presently appears.

    Wrong again, Most Americans enter legally so the wall is meant to help protect both countries from illegal activity. Good job President Trump

    The dems did everything they could to derail him, and he still accomplished a lot that had America rolling extremely well, until this Chinese flu like virus came and he took the advice from Fauci sut down the economy, that's his mistake.

    A lot of Americans like myself who actually pay taxes(not the ones who pay nothing, lazy don't work and bitch about everything) believe this is well worth the expanse, preventing those who try to get in illegal will help save tax payers in the long run

    He built a wall to keep out people who had proven long before he took office that they knew which was the business end of a shovel. There are tunnels all along the border. BRILLIANT! Good job, President Slowpoke; if you'd watched the real news even once during the El Chapo saga, maybe you wouldn't have saddled the American people with a $22 billion colander.

    Sounds like Donny boy should've kept the pandemic gameplan Barry left for the Trump administration, and it sounds like he also should've taken Barry's advice and not disband the virus task force. Oh well, this Trump virus will be quite the debacle for the future generation to read up about.
