Trump's border wall with Mexico is not 'almost built'

Trump's proposed border wall with Mexico came to encapsulate his nationalist, anti-immigration message on the campaign trail in 2016, but the president has not delivered.

Trump's additions cover less than 19 percent of the entire border. From the start, experts and lawmakers warned that a full frontier barrier would have been technically infeasible and prohibitively costly. Estimates stretched to $45 billion for the whole structure, a cost that would be inflated by maintenance costs and private land acquisitions.

Aside from the human rights and financial concerns raised by wall opponents, experts also warned that Trump's proposed wall would have dire environmental consequences, dissecting and disrupting border ecosystems.Trump and his allies initially side-stepped the issue of costs by claiming Mexico would pay for the wall. Former Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said soon after Trump's election that his country would not pay for the barrier, adding:"Mexico does not believe in walls."

The president instead drew on military budgets and FEMA national disaster relief funds to pay for his project. Private fundraising efforts also sought to buoy the administration's wall.But one of these—We Build the Wall, founded by military veteran Brian Kolfage with leadership from former GOP Secretary of State of Kansas Kris Kobach and former Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon—was hit with charges of fraud.

The organization raised more than $25 million, but all Kolfage, Kobach and Bannon are all accused of siphoning off funds illegally for personal use.President Donald Trump participates in a ceremony commemorating the 200th mile of border wall at the international border with Mexico in San Luis, Arizona, June 23.

When will Mexico start paying?..🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Let’s report on real news what do you say? TRUMP is NOT anti-immigration. He is anti-ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. Get it straight & AVOID CONFUSION. LEGAL IMMIGRATION is OK, that is when immigrants are ALLOWED to enter by permission. JUST TO SNEAK or WALK over the borders is NOT LEGAL = ILLEGAL.

You're wrong,The President said it's almost built&when it's complete,Mexico will pay the full amount with intrest,You don't think the President,A good&honest,God fearing Christian that tithes 20% every Sunday,Would lie to the American people,My Lord,My God please say it ain't so. Over 360 miles built is impressive by all standard. Additionally and more importantly illegal border crossing is reduced by about 50%. About Mexico paying- well Mexico has over 20k military personnel supporting ICE with border protection. Payment is also in the USMCA. No brainer

I remember....you are the guys who came up with that 'Madam President' Magazine with Hillary Photo. You'll got it wrong then and you are spreading fake news now. Never learn.

“We’re gonna reinforce small sections of the wall and taxpayers are gonna pay for it” doesn’t have the same ring to it. Ok, and? The border wall with Mexico is a bad idea while the Great Wall is a good one. Because with the help of modern technology, it is quite easy for people to cross the wall. Whereas the Great with guards every several miles away on it can keep enemies away because those days climbing.

It is US Mexico BORDER WALL...! 260 miles yes the mexicans will be relieved that it will keep him out and his supporters Treat him with kid gloves. Be careful. You're Newsweek. You don't want to appear principled. Well then. Trump needs more time to finish the wall. Let's give him 4 more years. 😉 Desperate much 🥱🥱🥱

Of course it isn't. But do you think his supporters that believe the Democrats run a pedophilia ring will believe that? Doesn’t matter, Donnie‘s gonna continue to lie & tell his base of nitwits how much his precious Wall not only works, but that it is “almost” completely finished!!! Says who?

Where Trump and Biden Stand on Financial RegulationJoe Biden was vice president when Barack Obama signed the Dodd-Frank financial regulation act in 2010. In a second term, Trump would continue efforts to ease its restrictions. Biden would likely build on it. YES LETS GET BACK TO OBAMA ERA OPEN BORDER / 9 TRILLION DEBT / BAD TRADE / CLOSING FACTORIES / OPIOD EPIDEMIC AND WAR ON COPS. Good! Knee jerk politicians. They make laws after the fact. Which then ruins everyone going forward.
