BOOM! Trump says if Democrats don’t budge on the wall, the Military will build it!

I knew it! Trump, in a mini-tweetstorm this morning, told Democrats that if they refused to give him the votes needed to build the wall, that the military would build the remaining sections of the wall because they know how important it is.

He also noted that some of the wall has already been built and some has been renovated, pointing out that the public doesn’t realized how much they’ve done.

Lastly, Trump said the border is now secure, referring to how the caravan was unable to get in, and that it will remain that way.

Here’s the tweets:

Despite the large Caravans that WERE forming and heading to our Country, people have not been able to get through our newly built Walls, makeshift Walls & Fences, or Border Patrol Officers & Military. They are now staying in Mexico or going back to their original countries…….

…..Ice, Border Patrol and our Military have done a FANTASTIC job of securing our Southern Border. A Great Wall would be, however, a far easier & less expensive solution. We have already built large new sections & fully renovated others, making them like new. The Democrats,…..

….however, for strictly political reasons and because they have been pulled so far left, do NOT want Border Security. They want Open Borders for anyone to come in. This brings large scale crime and disease. Our Southern Border is now Secure and will remain that way…….

…..I look forward to my meeting with Chuck Schumer & Nancy Pelosi. In 2006, Democrats voted for a Wall, and they were right to do so. Today, they no longer want Border Security. They will fight it at all cost, and Nancy must get votes for Speaker. But the Wall will get built…

….People do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built. If the Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country, the Military will build the remaining sections of the Wall. They know how important it is!



Actual tweets:

Given the 2017 report that Trump could order the military to build the wall using defense  spending, I’ve suspected that Trump might do that if the Democrats refuse to give him the votes. Now it appears that’s exactly what he’s going to do and he’ll probably declare it a project of national security in order to make it happen. 

Note that Trump said the military would only build what remains and not an entire new great wall along the border. That would certainly require less money and resources and would be easier for the American public to swallow.

And for the record, I don’t really have any issues with this. Congress has failed Trump and the fact remains we need a border wall in strategic places.
