As some reading this are aware, I was a #NeverHillary person…but Trump’s plan to build a wall along the US-Mexico border – and the claim that Mexico will pay for it has always been absurd.
Reminiscent of former Vice President Dick Cheney’s mobbed-up, war-profiteering, no-bid Halliburton contracts to reconstruct the Iraq which he’d just razed to the ground (for no good reason), Trump reiterated last Friday that he will move forward with his plan to build a wall across the US-Mexico border.
It’s less evil than Cheney’s deal (anything is less evil than Dick Cheney) and it’s a lot dumber.
That said, I’m very glad that Trump killed the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the most Fascist piece of legislation that has ever been tabled by the US Government during my lifetime – and which I believe Hillary would have passed, despite her campaign promises, which were a 180º from her previous praise of it as “The gold standard.” (Of what? Orwellian hellaciousness?)
This short clip explains the challenges and the potential infeasibility of the wall.
