Border Wall ≠ Border Security
Now what is the real reason? Ms Marley K., Mr. Trump has claimed to have superior intellect during his campaign which ultimately led many to vote for him, apparently 🤨, based on these superior abilities.
So why can’t he simply impress upon congress now why we (oops I mean the American people 🤭 and he) needs this wall so badly. Mr. Trump has stated many times that he knows how this government works better than anyone.
“I think nobody knows the system better than I do.” — August 2016
So why can’t he simply tell them what they don’t know about border security so that their minds will be blown and they give him what he wants?
“I am a person that used to be establishment when I’d give them hundreds of thousands of dollars. But when I decided to run, I became very anti-establishment, because I understand the system than anybody else.” — July 2016
“Nobody knows the system better than I do.” — April 2016
“Nobody knows politicians better than Donald Trump.” — February 2016 rally
If this is in fact all about national security then why can’t he just explain why to the generals in the military so that they could influence congress to give him the border wall. Oh but wait…
“So a general gets on, sent obviously by Obama, and he said, ‘Mr. Trump doesn’t understand. He knows nothing about defense.’ I know more about offense and defense than they will ever understand, believe me. Believe me. Than they will ever understand. Than they will ever understand.” — July 2016
“There’s nobody bigger or better at the military than I am.” — June 2015 Fox News interview
“I know more about ISIS [the Islamic State militant group] than the generals do. Believe me.” — November 2015
So why won’t he just expound on his brilliance to Congress himself then. Just tell them Mr. President. They want to know what we all don’t know. And apparently, according to you, a lot of us don’t know that much. Tell us.
Mr. Trump says it is to stop illegal drugs from entering the United States, however the DEA says “the most common method for smuggling narcotics into the U.S. involves driving them right through legal ports of entry, camouflaged with legitimate commercial goods” as reported by New York Magazine.
So what is the real reason?
As the publication rightfully ascertains from all of this is this.
[…]the point of Trump’s wall has always been symbolic. The policy was “designed” to give visceral expression to the far right’s xenophobia — and thus, to trigger the libs, flummox the “cucks,” and authenticate Trump’s solidarity with the GOP’s perennially betrayed nativist contingent. The wall is meant to serve as a monument to red America’s triumph in one front of the culture wars.
Trump should simply just tell them that so that we can all see the genius in action.
