  1. Stop calling it a wall. And call it by its rightful name, 45’s Vanity Re-election Project.

    This is purposely to weaken our military while our eastern partners are making theirs stronger . Good job man 👏👏👏

      @Molon Labe what makes you think anyone wants America open to attack?

    • @Jarl S Yes….That’s too bad…We have to protect our country before we protect yours….you’ll just have to wait.

    • @turfxpert Lol – you think this is for protecting Norway? It is a refueling and repair station for long range missions. If anything it increases the risk as the area now got a big target on it. We are not complaining, we will do fine – after all we bought a whole heap of F-35 to replace all the ageing F16’s – but it underlines the “weakening US military” statement of the OP.

    • @Jarl S I saw weak military when I visited my daughter for Thanksgiving at Miramar Marine air station during the Obama administration. She was on a helicopter Crew, ” Heavy Haulers”. They were keeping those things together with bailing wire and bubble gum thanks to our President at the time redirecting money to other, less deserving causes/nations legally and illegally. Our military has not been weakened…your project has been put on “hold”

    • Thats funny coming from the democratic side lmao

      @Andrew Barnett stop getting your facts from liberal sources and do some research. Everything I’ve posted you can google and find out is 100% true. But you won’t look any further than CNN. Your ignorance doesn’t make me wrong.

      ​@Andrew Barnett >>> “if the children were born in the US does not make them illegal” I fail to see how it matters. It’s still part of the cost of illegal immigration to citizens. Those kids aren’t qualifying on their own just because they’re citizens they are qualifying because their illegal parents don’t earn very much, but it’s the parents responsibility to support their children not other tax payers. And besides, please tell me how the illegal parents don’t benefit from the financial relief they get when they get welfare to help support their children? Of course they benefit from the extra income. It frees up money that they would have to spend on their kids that they can now spend on themselves. You can’t have mass illegal immigration poor people and a welfare state. You get to pick one.

    • Rico Castañon id rather pay for the wall then pay for planned parent hoods murdering babies in the womb. But you know im deplorable… lmao

  4. TRUMP:Who’s going to pay for the wall MEXICO is
    MEXICO:American Tax Payers Will 🤣

    • I must correct you.
      Mexico: Mexico no va pagar por un pinche wall! Get out of politics. Go back to your mediocre life defrauding the U.S. Gov’t, hiring and underpaying your illegal alien employees. -Vicente Fox, Ex Presidente de Mexico

    • Andy Griggs damn right ese now go cut my lawn

      three former Mexican presidents said Mexico will never pay for a stupid wall one even said “we will not pay a single penny for that stupid fucking wall”

      @Selale Z I didn’t know what stupid anecdote you were talking about, moron.

      Here’s the stats:
      https://fairus.org/issue/publications-resources/fiscal-burden-illegal-immigration-united-states-taxpayers proves we spend $135 billion per year on a suspected 12.3 million illegals being here. Yale proved this year https://thehill.com/latino/407848-yale-mit-study-22-million-not-11-million-undocumented-immigrants-in-us there are actually 22-30+ million illegals here, so that $135 billion can be multiplied by 3, so over $300 billion; at minimum $150 billion.

      100+ IQ European immigrants built this country when there was NO welfare system. 80 IQ Central Americans WITH a welfare system did not build this country and are only burdening it. These people are walking thousands of miles through Mexico to get to America where they can live off of welfare. There is nothing noble about what they’re doing. You’re literally treasonous.

    • STOP ABORTING BABIES START ABORTING LIBERALS Ha college graduate. Didn’t you learn immigrants were vital for a countries development nowadays? Illegal immigrants cost money..ya… but building a wall won’t stop it. If the drug cartels have the money which they do, they will build tunnels deeper than expected and longer with somewhat advanced technology. If your a college graduate, you should know that just building a wall isn’t going stop illegal immigration, nor will it reduce it by a margin. These people are threatened by death, and will anything to stop it. Better to Help Mexico stop drug Cartels and build up safe infrastructure than build a wall.

    • STOP ABORTING BABIES START ABORTING LIBERALS 100+ IQ European immigrants built this country. 100% agree. Now, let a more diverse influx of people help build it too to speed growth and development. Countries like Singapore are doing exceptionally well cuz they are quite open. You need to stop living in the 1700s and live in the 2010s. Time has changed a lot of things for THE BETTER.

    • Our military is the strongest it has ever been thanks to Trump. Our Troops absolutely love all of the new equipment and supplies and love him….The Border Wall is Part of the Defense of our nation. We must defend our nation…Get over it.

    • turfxpert Everyone wants to keep America awesome and great. A wall WILL ruin everything. America is seen as a safe beacon in the World (or used to). It’s a country that accepts. The World will react, and in a more globalised World, you want the world with you, not against. It’s not just about defending America. Ya, illegal immigrants hit hard on the economy.. a wall won’t fix it. These people are escaping death and will do anything to get into the US and Canada. Make Mexico safe. Employ security officers and drones. That will boost jobs and create a safer neighbour down south. It’s not easy, but a wall is not the answer.

  6. yea trump sell our air craft carriers, all our new pretty f-35 fighter jets, sell it all trump. Then put that money into your bank account. We all know that’s what you want to do.

  7. Putin applauds Trump’s gutting the Cyber Attack Budget. Cheers from Michael. Australia.

    • Putin applauds gun confiscation

    • @Molon Labe why?

    • Yep, and some 770M to support european allies against russia..

    • @Molon Labe, of course, Putin applauds things going _either way_ with your country’s gun nonsense. Either the NRA who oppose any kind of gun control gets pissed off or the vast majority of Americans who support at least a little bit of sensible gun control get pissed off, both outcomes makes life harder for the American government, both cause more division and discord within American society, so it’s win/win for Russia.

      DA, tovaritsj …………..

  8. Mexi…ehhh… military will pay for the wall 🏗🧱🥳🤔🤐😜

  9. What happened to the billions of dollars that was supposed to been seized from the Mexican drug lord?

  10. Trump the treacherous dealer has struck again. He just cannot stop winning.

  11. It’s like….when Satan throws a soul into the lava pits of Hell….are you really surprised when trump does something scummy?

  12. Taking money from cybersecurity and shipyards to build a wall China and Russia are laughing

    Calling it now, half the wall funds will ‘go missing’ in an offshore account in Russia…

  16. Our military and the Justice department is corrupt and dysfunctional. They swore to protect us from all enemies foreign and domestic. They need to all resign and get tried for treason against the citizens of the United States. The people who actually pay their salary.

  17. What a disgrace…a 5 time draft dodging coward funneling military money to build his wall. You trump supporters have no shame.

  18. *We went from “Mexico will pay for the wall” to let’s f**k our Military the very people give their lives to keep us save, Orange creature 🐙 has got to go*

  19. *If Russia were to Attack USA tomorrow Trump will take his Sharpie and write Mexico Attacked USA and Putin is the best President*

  20. so what! Hes the President . We need a border wall!
