      @Lil chief dinero fan 1609 I thought you were talking about the thing you said, Frank Lucas was from New York and trafficked cocaine from Asia on a unicorn.

      @CHING CHONG JOE I was talking about him operating in New York. And him buying heroin out of Southeast Asia. During the Vietnam conflict. That’s what I was talking about.

      @Lil chief dinero fan 1609 but it is not what you said, which is why I corrected you. Move on and in the future do better.

      @CHING CHONG JOE What did you think I was talking about ?

  2. When the wall is stopped all kick backs to Trump are stopped.

      @Asongu Collins Bro you need to go find you something to do.

      You think trump needs kickbacks. He could build the wall with his own money! Stop watching msm
      🤨

      Kick backs? Lmao 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 omg this is soooo ripe.

    • @Stephen Landry Trump lost his prized yacht the Pricess for defaulting on the payments. Russia bailed him out when banks stopped lending to him to keep his empire above water. All 15 golf courses are losing money. Time for you to join the rest of civilization and get out of the trump cloud because it is toxic.

      @david clark excellent point. Conservatives refuse to acknowledge that China has Americas best interest in mind and is the logical choice for acquiring capital. They’re the good intentioned communists. C’mon man!

  3. Dumb as hell lol complete waste of our money. All the funding left should be used to mitigate all the damage they’ve done so far..

  4. The future of his wall is basically rubble.

    • A lot of it is already crumbling or the ground underneath is eroding. The construction has been really shoddy.

    • @GreenEyedLady Hasn’t had time to erode, sorry. it’s poured concrete and steel. It’s going to be there for a very long time. Enjoy!

    • @Eric Yeah that’s why Mexico had to put a portion of the wall back up, a tree was the only thing holding it up stupid 😂 that wall won’t last 5 years, guaranteed. Bunch of idiots and con jobs put it up, you wonder why everything Trump touches turns to $hit?

      If there’s one thing Democrats do better than Republicans its destroying things.

    • Like everything in Trump’s wake

  5. Only 5 miles of New Wall has been constructed, the rest was replacement.

    • “Only 5 miles of New Wall has been constructed, the rest was replacement.”
      i don’t think so.
      what you said was true as of Dec 2019.

      I’m fairly sure the fence being built this year has been brand new.
      like that bit that cut through that woman’s property, THAT was all new.

      Pretty sure about 400 miles of new fence was made just this year.

    • @Eric within a few weeks of the unclimbable wall being revealed exact replicas were constructed at climbing centre’s all over the US. It’s not even considered a basic challenge. I saw a video of a nine year old girl scaling it in the few minutes.

      @V for Wombat Look that wall is bullshit. Get that through your head plz..

    • @Nonya Buisness sadly that fence is bullsht that’s really harming the environment.
      but I’m saying that THIS YEAR trump apparently finally got around to constructing new fence instead of replacement fence.

      and please stop referring to it as a wall. it’s a fence.
      don’t give trump the satisfaction of winning that branding war.

      @V for Wombat I give him credit only to waking us up to corruption, racism, and lies from the white house. We shouldn’t pay for his failures period…

  6. It’s funny in that initial clip of Trump saying “Who is going to pay for the wall?”, he then points at his audience, and they don’t get it.

      @Genesis Omega not true ! The biggest baddest motherfuckers are not shown on tv or the news papers, or the internet , so be very aware , they are never seen but do exist! The first line of defense requires a little help , they are flesh and blood and are not liked by the evil ones!

    • The wall that trump said nobody could climb. The wall that was so strong it fell down in 35 mile per hour winds. The same wall that was cut with 100 dollar sawsizzle from home depot….🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Bannon laughing all the way to the banks

    • Thank God Chump won’t be around to pardon Bannon..

  9. “the wall is public theater” perfect!

  10. Sorry fool couldn’t even finish the fence he promised to his voters

  11. I could carry a portable oxy-accetolene torch to that wall and in 5 minutes have a hole through big enough for what ever I want to bring through.

  12. Just a point, this wall between the US and Mexico covers a distance that is 1/2 the distance between the US and Europe. Vast , deep canyons through terribly rugged terrain. Completely insane .

  13. “Who will pay for it!?”
    “MEXICO!”
    lol, isn’t it embarrassing to watch how easily he manipulates these people? Before Trump got elected I vastly underestimated how many of these uneducated, witless people there were in America. The last 4 years was a real eye opener, and not in a good way.

  14. The wall is just another boondoggle that doesn’t stop anyone. My neighbors drove their Camry to Albuquerque. (My best neighbors by the way, all their kids have jobs and are respectful.)

    One of the guys in the piece said that we should finish the wall, because, “You’re just throwing money down the toilet,” if we don’t. The government is pretty good at that. We built the Yucca Mountain site for nuclear waste storage, and it was shut down before it opened.

  16. Mexico just called: they want their money back.

    The comment that it is money down a hole to stop once the footings are in is flat out imbecilic. Basic economics classes teach this concept. Throwing more money in just because you already spent money on a ridiculously stupid idea doesn’t make it a good idea. Stop the waste and don’t spend another nickel on this classic monument to trump’s colossal stupidity. Plan now to tear that insane monument down as soon as possible.

  18. Don’t know but I can tell you Mexico isn’t paying for it.

  19. Biden stops building the fence. even if he has to let contracts be finished, no more will be built.
    plus he stops funding for repairs.
    if he does that, the fence will be torn down or just blow over within a few years.
    the expected upkeep of the fence for repairs and such was millions per year- hundreds of millions a year if the entire fence had been built.
    letting it go will save lots of money.

    btw, it’s a fence, not a wall, and socalled liberal media called ti a wall this entire piece.
    hmmm….

  20. Echoing Ronald Reagan’s words: ‘Tear down this wall’!!!
