President Trump: We Will BUILD THE WALL!

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

Just yesterday, I’d remarked to my chief of research that Trump had not spoken in months of building the wall, and Mitt Romney’s niece, the RNC chairman, had left it out of a GOP to-do list about two weeks ago.

It occurred to me that Trump was becoming like Bush II: triangulating to the left, while having the same attitude of “Who are you going to vote for instead of me.”

Of course, John McCain and Mitt Romney learned the answer to that seemingly rhetorical question: Nobody!

However, as happened with King George II, the DPUSA’s racism and treason have been pushing millions of voters to support Trump, just as happened during the election.

The question remains: Was Trump just throwing his base a bone with the following tweet, or was it meant honestly?

Black Dem accuses Steve King of 'white privilege' in heated exchange

The chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus accused Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who’s faced criticism in the past for racially charged comments, of bias stemming from “white privilege.”

King was offering an amendment to legislation considered in the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that speeds up the return of unaccompanied immigrant children to their home countries if they haven’t been subject to human trafficking and aren’t at risk of persecution.

King’s amendment would require the Justice Department to report to Congress on crimes committed by the unaccompanied immigrant children following their release from Department of Homeland Security custody.
He began citing statistics comparing the violent death rate in El Salvador to the homicide rate in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), who represents New Orleans and leads the Black Caucus, quickly interrupted.

“We’re going to lose all civility in this committee if he thinks it’s appropriate to compare New Orleans to Guatemala,” Richmond said.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) tried to be diplomatic. “The gentleman from Iowa has the right to make a statistical comparison between two locations,” he said.

But Richmond said it was inappropriate for King to compare New Orleans, which has a large African American population, to a country in Central America where people are fleeing violence.

“It’s not appropriate. It’s insensitive. And it’s nothing more than traditional white privilege of ‘let me criticize a minority city,’” Richmond said angrily.

“If the gentleman persists on it, then let’s go in the back and have the conversation about New Orleans,” he added. “If it takes walking across over there, then I’m prepared to do that, too.”

Richmond noted that lawmakers had been calling for more political civility in the wake of last week’s shooting at the GOP baseball practice, emphasizing that “words and actions have consequences.”

Goodlatte defended King’s right to compare the statistical data.

“Words have consequences. So do statistics, and so do arguments. This is the place to do it under the rules of the House,” Goodlatte said, yielding back to King.
GRA:The truth hit a bullseye,right on Richmond's noggin.Go get 'em King.

Throwing a bone. More than likely the wall will never be built.

Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will be the wall. Don't anyone expect instantaneous results.

We will BUILD THE WALL!
I hear the talk. I don't see the walk.
