Aaaaaand.... Trump, what to do with a wall?

#1 Post by RealBlackStuff » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:56 am

Trump, what to do with a wall?

If he wants a wall that badly, why not pay for it out of his own pocket?
After all, he already bought the Presidency!

EDIT: the above link that I found does not have sound.
But yesterday MSNBC also found it and transmitted it in various news shows.
One of these (with sound):

Given LEGO pricing, I'll need a 5.7 billion dollar budget to afford it :lol:

Ugh, I can think of a bunch of ways to spend this $5+ billion he wants for this thing on something OTHER than a wall, to make people's lives better...

Yes "Walls" are only in your mind and this is definitely an expensive mind game.

Maybe that's what he's trying to do. Unless you'd rather have 5 billion spent on immigrants. Where do you think money to feed, house, educate, get driver's licenses, welfare, food stamps, medical care, etc. comes from for these immigrants?

You and me. That's where it comes from. Do you want to keep paying for that decade after decade? Or pay 5 billion once and be done with it?

Well while we are at it, if we all pay 64,000$, we can get rid of the national debt!

Just saw the same video on "The Beat With Ari Melber" on MSNBC.

Will the Wall will solve debt problems?
The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy released a report in February 2016, stating that 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States are paying annually an estimated amount of $11.64 billion in state and local taxes, "on average an estimated 8 percent of their incomes.
Besides this they do work many Americans don't want to do and are often exploited by bosses.

Trump has filed for bankruptcy 6 times and generally this is done to avoid Tax. Who wears the cost of this?

Trump has increased the military budget for FY 2019 to 681 billion.

People who think this wall saga is to save money need to wake up.

Oh, so as long as they're paying taxes it's OK that they entered the country illegally and remain in the US illegally?

There are no jobs that Americans don't want to do, but thank you for repeating the usual Chamber Of Commerce propaganda nonsense.

Also, if you divide $11B of supposedly paid taxes by $11M illegal immigrants (the real number is likely above 40M but that's beside the point for this particular conversation) that comes to $1,000 a year. I pay more than that in about two months in state taxes alone. One more reason why it doesn't pay to be a legal immigrant in this country.

As for being "exploited by the bosses", one could make an argument that *everyone* is exploited by their bosses, especially at current worker/CEO wage ratio, but that's another carcass that most people are afraid to touch...

The only jobs Americans don't want to do are sub-minimum wage, benefit-less, in some cases practically slave labor. That's not employment, and not subject to labor laws.

It's not that Americans don't want to work. The folks that hire illegals don't want to hire Americans. They are as much part of the problem.

If he really wants the wall he should have the military build it out of military funding. The military gets plenty billions.
