Donald Trump was looking for a fight, so he went out and created one. Why would he do such a thing? Being president of these great United States appears to have been a reality show for this man, rather than a grave responsibility. POTUS has an idea that the way for him to retain his base is to show them something tangible.
In an early morning tweet, Trump argued that he had to have his medieval wall to “stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking,” etc.:
‘The only way to stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking, criminal elements and much else from coming into our Country is with a Wall or Barrier. Drones and all of the rest are wonderful and lots of fun, but it is only a good old fashioned Wall that works!’
It appears that Trump understands that there are 21st century technology solutions to the problems he listed in his tweet. Unfortunately, the wall in his mind was more like the Great Wall of China, which was built between 771–206 BC, which was way earlier than the Medieval period (476 AD-1453 AD).
Maybe, the president was thinking of a wall similar to the wall Israel built to wall off the Palestinians which is a little over 26′ tall. Neither went over well with most of Congress and the people.
Then, POTUS decided that problem was naming this wall, and he began calling it “steel slats.” He tweeted, USA Today reported:
‘One way or the other we’re going to get a wall, we’re going to get a barrier, we’re going to get anything you want to name it. You can name it anything you want.’
Trump’s problem was that he was trying to make an ill-considered solution fit a problem, rather than addressing the problem.
