crisis? Crossings down four fold form peak.
falling for 20 years. not every year. fell under Obama.
unutterably idiptic to say there is a crisis.
300 heroin deaths per week. they choose to take it. rugged individualism. people dying from lack of healthcare is not an emergency. shootings are never an emergency
no one said it was a national emergency before. palying his last crd. no way out. painted himself into a corner
Mexican standoff. dems will disappoint supporters if they give ground
trump will enrage his backers if he lets them down on this key plank of his campaign
emblematic pledge. best known and most easily recognizable. flagship.
should be blowing his own trumpet
400 000 illegals caught crossing 2017
500 000 last year
lying in a way that undermines his own achievemtn. his pitiless rhetoric scared some off. no amnesty . Reagan had an amnesty
federak worjkerdsuffer. good ones will get other jobs. trump likes not to pay oeople.
illegals can work for trump
no longer says mexico will foot the bill.
build wall in Mexico. pay them to do it. if wall is so vital
wall impracticak. private land. state land. 10 billion to build at least. no roads for trucks
spend on border patrol officers.
democtats offered that.
there is a fence in some parts. not in remote regions inhospitable regions with vipers.
now he wants a fence not a wall.
why this idea? simple idea for simpletons. an image. emotive. cannot be outflanked on anti immigrant demagoguery. draws little disctinciton between legals an illegals.,
why niw> ? Distract from faulures. Syria and afghan decisions. campaign promises/ desperate to delive
r won 46% of vote. on 41 %. Hillary had high negatives. minor parties did well
why did he not push for wall on day 1 if it was urgent
distract from mueller which os coming to a head.
ramp up rhetoric. create drama. sensationalise. invent a narrative of victimhood. stir up conflict. polarize. appeal to paranoia, fear, racism, and odium. wht he does best. weave his wicked magic.
his rhetoric is scare mongering. can go no lower.
