Help me understand this. I really don’t get it.
President Trump promised on the campaign trail that we’re going to build a wall across the Mexico-U.S border and MEXICO was going to pay for it.
There are many head scratches here:
Why are we spending any money on the wall? Mexico was suppose to foot the bill, not us. If I were a Trump supporter, i would be mad at Trump. He promised that another country would pay for the wall, and now he wants you to pay for it. That’s like giving somebody a free vacation and then giving them a bill once they leave the resort.
When Trump said build a wall, did he mean the ENTIRE U.S-Mexico border or only the places where it was legal to build the wall? That point was never made clear.
We already have a wall at the U.S Mexico border. Illegal crossings have gone down, not up. Sign me up if we want to improve on the wall AND come up with a better system of tracking down drug traffickers, gang members, and mules. Obviously, just upgrading the wall is not going to do it. What is Trump proposing we do about people who dig underneath walls, drug mules, and use planes to transport drugs and guns?
I am trying to be as neutral as possible. Just trying to understand what we’re really fighting over. The Dems have said they are willing to put more money into border security, they just think Trump’s wall idea is too costly and completely ineffective.
