Trump releases new video of the WALL being built!

Trump has just released new video of the Wall being built on the New Mexico border.

He says they’ve completed the wall well ahead of schedule:

Trump calls it a ‘powerful wall’. I’m sure it’s quite effective, but it wouldn’t be Trump if he didn’t make it sound larger than life.



Also note that the wall is made from steel slats, as Trump said it would be last year, arguing that’s what the border patrol asked for so they could see on the other side.

#FinishTheWall

Let’s go ahead and make this an open thread.

I got two things for ya:

And…

Enjoy!

Trump moved out of the pack finally getting Wollman Ice Rink done after years of delays and millions of wasted dollars. Trump doing what he does best – construction projects. MAGA

Not sure why anyone is still bit**ing about “steel slats”

A solid wall was a dumb idea in the first place considering how many agents were surprise attacked due to no visibility to the Mexican side.
Once the Pres & Congress started to listen to BP, (the actual people who protect our border) the solid wall became bollard fencing. Deal with it!

To date (Nov 2018) approx 36 miles of replacement or new fencing has been completed. Contracts for an additional 84 miles (in various places) have been awarded & construction will begin in 2019. Remember, most sections will take at least a year or more to complete.

A quick comment on Trump making a statement about the border wall: He tweets about certain subjects to trigger the left. It works every time! I learned to de-code his tweets and have figured out who he is targeting with them. It took a while for me to appreciate it. I was one of the many people wishing he would not tweet things after he won the election. Now, I am relishing in how he can push the left’s buttons at will. Even those who still don’t like it have to admit he has tricked the left into dropping their charade about not being socialist tyrants. Now we can see them clearly for the anti-God, anti-American, anti-life, anti-truth, wannabe-authoritarians that the actually are!

Whoops, this means old Max Boot is the one who was lying.. His opinion piece for WaPo just blew
up in his face…

He claimed that Trump was lying when he said ‘the wall IS being built’….

Either Boot thinks walls aren’t built in sections or he was just making things up as he went along..

I’m hoping they add maximum security prison style barbed wire along the top with sniper towers every couple of miles. Drones equipped with infrared and night vision cameras, K9 units, along with tunnel detection tech

That just makes so much sense to have a wall on our border. The republicans could have taken care of this during the past two years and failed us miserably.

Good Trump,

A further deterrent, in those areas where we have more than 2 ambitious climbers, we should place a nice movable band of Punji sticks to catch them as they jump off the barrier fence on our side.

In those areas where we discover active or old digging under or tunneling, some closely spaced 10″ ~ 12″ dia.x 15′ to 20′ deep concrete filled holes will slow them down

New Mexico’s democrat governor is against the wall so this is good news! And there’s even more. Today, New Mexico sheriff’s announced they will not enforce the new gun legislation bills in the state House, including universal back ground checks and more. Voters here need to wake up and realize the democrats running everything here are not JFKesque.

Unless that upper section has a safety cap that gets removed, this isn’t the design of “Trump’s Wall.”

Why not release some facts.
WHERE is this, who was awarded the contract, when was it started.
It’s bad enough that Dems mislead, does our side have to do it as well?
Wall projects that “supposedly” started before were NOT.

Wasn’t it just the other day that Presidential Candidate Kirsten Gillibrand complained about Trump’s “Medieval concrete wall” that he wanted to build. Once again she shows her ignorance and her willingness to push her agenda regardless of the facts.

This barrier is exactly what the Border Control agents wanted, something they could see through so they could know what was happening on the other side.

Could someone drag a ladder big enough to scale this? Well, let them try. The effort would be enormous, and most of all, very obvious. They would be caught before their feet touched the ground.

And yes, we should use drones in addition to to the barriers. Can you imagine how discouraging this would be to those large caravans of people?

.. Is it new wall in areas where no wall has been before … -or- new wall actually replacing “old wall” ?

Now we just need Congress to declare Mexican drug cartels terrorist organizations, so attempting to cross the border is no longer worth the risk.

The border is actively beefed up since a year +.
The new money will secure more miles. Every mile counts.
Where are all the liars who claimed nothing is done at the border?

I really think this can be even more effective by putting a map up on DJT’s Reelection website showing the wall in real time being built. It would be even more interesting to post camera feeds from each location. Personally, I doubt any significant wall will be built. However, he has the ability to constantly stick it in the Left’s face.

AOC says that Trump’s wall is just like the Berlin Wall.

Someone should tell the Congresswoman, the reason they had to build the Berlin wall was to keep people from fleeing East Germany because it was a Socialist, Communist Hellhole – ideas she believes in and fights for.

Why don’t they put rolls of razor wire on top? That can’t be hard to do or add much cost, and it stops most of the ladders/climbers.

Border Patrol: Wall in New Mexico to Be ‘Serious Structure’

The wall will stand at least 18 feet tall (5.4 meters) and could go as high as 30 feet (9.1 meters) depending on the undulating terrain. It will have a 5-foot (1.5 meter) metal plate at the top to discourage climbing.

The concrete will extend several feet into the ground and there will be more concrete below that to prevent people from digging under it.

They think they really got Trump by forbidding “a concrete wall.” This is better. The bollards are concrete filled. They rest on an extra-deep concrete footer. They are prefab sections, which means easy-to-replace.

Let’s say you stick a chunk of high-grade explosive on this thing. You take out a few sections, but only slightly damage the footer. New sections can go up in a matter of a few days.

From an engineering perspective, this is a good design.

It’s good to see the wall being built. I’ll just say this… if ANY democrat (like Beta) tries to tear down this wall, then there needs to be a mob to stop them. It’s beyond maddening for them to even suggest it.
