POTUS has already started his great wall — in his mind. Maybe, it’s like the great ice wall in Game of Thrones. That one is 300 miles long (100 leagues) and 700 feet tall. It was built to protect the Seven Kingdoms from creatures nearly beyond description. Donald Trump has not exactly said how long his wall will be or what material he is using, but ice will certainly not work along the U.S.’s southern border. Check out his latest tweet.
He must believe that if he yelled out that “MEXICO IS PAYING,’ people would forget about his Cohen-Russia problems:
‘I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so muchbetter (sic) than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!’
Trump even tweeted that the cost of his great wall was wrapped up in the old reconstituted NAFTA deal, USMCA. Surely, Mexico would feel slighted that it only got one letter when the U.S. and Canada got two of them. They may never pay for the wall for that reason alone.
The trouble for the man sitting in the Oval Office was that he did not have a real vision, just fog. Vision would be important if he had any real intention of building his wall. Maybe the commander-in-chief was going for something like the Great Wall of China.
China’s wall was over 13,000 miles long and built of anything handy: earthen bricks, stones, and various other materials. That wall was only 25 and one half feet tall, though. Of course, it took 200 years to build it. Maybe, the president has been hoping that his will take so long to build that people will forget he said Mexico would pay for it.
Unfortunately, Trump’s great wall still only exists in his mind, resting there for him to pull out on the occasions he needs a good subject to use to detract away from other his other problems.
