    To objectively address the thread's title, we need to review Trump's campaign mantra.....

    Trump promised his loyal base a wall (never mind the moronic assertion that Mexico would pay for it; THAT was just demagoguery.)

    Trump also knows that if a wall is NOT built, his chances of re-election are about as probable as Jill Stein's in 2016

    Then we have the made-up DOJ policy that a sitting president cannot be indicted until he or she is out of office and Trump well knows that there are a ton of legal quagmires awaiting him AND his family in 2021 were he out of office.

    Finally, the only viable defense that Trump may have in facing these legal issues, is to rely on the statutes of limitation to save his hide.

    Sooooooo, the real reason why Trump NEEDS a wall to be built, is NOT because of a made-up "national crisis"........but simply, to keep his fat ass out of bankruptcies, shame and even possibly out of prison.

    One of Trump's strong points is that he keeps his campaign promises. Agreed that winning in 2020 solves most of his potential legal issues too via the statute of limitations.
    However, if Trump imposes a remittances fee on money transfers out of the US to fund the wall that builds the wall using Mexican and other foreign country funds. Its a way to keep his campaign promise regarding the wall:
    The Remittance Fee in Oklahoma, Georgia, and in the U.S. Congress

    You know WHY the "remittance fee" ruse will never happen?????

    The MAIN opponent of such a iax is precisely the republican-led U.S. Chamber of Commerce......

    .....but stick to the thread's topic rather than your usual diversion.

    trump has a history of real estate land grab by eminent domain and he has contractor cohorts who would love that wall contract.

    trump began his campaign with red meat rhetoric demonizing mexicans AS IF we have a "crisis" at the boarder.

    now this so-called president who is a real-life walking talking threat to our national security............

    ...demonizes and financially depletes all federal agencies assigned to protect our national security!

    Trump needs a second term to allow the statute of limitations to expire on some of his alleged criminal activities; there is no crisis on the US southern border, but there is a serious crisis in the White House.

    Actually what you have their is your biased speculation on why Trump is trying to keep his campaign promise to his base.


    NOT a look at the actual issue.

    /----/ "Finally, the only viable defense that Trump may have in facing these legal issues, is to rely on the statutes of limitation to save his hide."
    Nahh, the Left will just invent more crimes to charge Trump and his family with when he's out of office.
