That's not including the estimated $150mil-$750mil in annual maintenance (which wouldn't happen anyway). I want to emphasize I'm working off estimates here but focus on the realistic and/or lower end. After all, some have the wall costing $70 billion.

My prediction is that this will all taper and go nowhere. I do agree though, it definitely makes a statement. I fear that's all it'll do.
That's right, because continued money being thrown at those methods have worked well. This is a public transaction, not sponsored by any government agancy, so they can crowd whatever the fakk thay want. Avenatti and Blasey Ford did pretty well with go fund me sites... Sounds like a ton of butt hurt... BTW, that is $80 per every Trump voter.

100% of robbery victims believe that theft is bad. Polls are so manipulated that I am surprised that anyone still conducts them..

My prediction is that The Wall will be erected with one caveat from the Ninth Circuit Court:
The Border Wall must be short enough that a pregnant woman carrying a child (in each arm) may not trip over it and pass without difficulty to the US.

A strong majority of Americans actually have a coherent to-do list for Washington with our tax money: we want better health care, repair our crumbling infrastructure, more education funding, reduced reliance on fossil fuels, and put back the money into Medicare and Social Security benefits ( that has been stolen to support wars), as well as veteran benefits. Plenty of worthy causes and programs ahead of this fantasy wall.

Plenty of feel good causes and programs ahead of the federal responsibility for a secure boarder provided by the wall.

Just think: As of right now the United States has no Secretary of Defense, no White House Chief of Staff, no Attorney General, no one's sure who's running the Department of Justice, the stock marketing is crashing, and the Federal Government is on the verge of being shut down...and you're all worried about a wall!

Let them go to Mexico and get it like lying Trump promised over and over. Just because Mexico told you to f**k yourselves doesn't mean they shouldn't stop trying....like Trump said, they will pay for the wall. And please, none of that figurative bull crap either. Americans are tired of alternate reality. This lying, corrupt Despot makes promises and lies every single day about something or other, only to be supported come heaven or hell by his pathetic disciples.

They only thing that I agree to is that you pay for it out of your own private pockets. Good luck on reaching that 25 billion.

p.s. I hope you kids and grand kids enjoy their below minimum wage migrant farm working jobs. I'm sure their clamoring to fill in those positions that immigrants are selfishly taking. To put this worthless wall over your children's health and education is unbelievable!
These polls mean nothing because they don't poll a population just a sample. It's horse****.

2nd the whole country voted for Trump,only a few square miles of AMERICA voted against trump- remove NYC, CALI and a few more dem cities that's around 20m stupid votes .

The real people have spoke. on top of that mexico is paying for the wall in trade deficits.

Do I really need to link the election map of what americans think..

Polls are samples of the entire population. Doesn't mean they don't mean nothing. Impossible to poll the entire population. Typical conservative response; polls only count when they are in your favor. Numbers only count when they are your favor.

Even conservative pollster Rasmussen shows an overwhelming majority of Americans against the wall.

Trump lost by over 3 million votes with the popular vote. Donald Trump lost the popular vote by a greater margin than any US President in our history! So to the contrary, the whole country did not vote for the Imbecile. Only the stupid ones.

There is no proof of that. Trump’s connection of the trade deficit with a Mexican border fence is just nonsense. You have no idea how the trade deficit works, do ya? The trade deficit is based mostly on trading and investment by private individuals and companies -- not the government itself. Trade surplus does not represent money in some idle bank account controlled by the Mexican government....and even if it did, do you think they'll give it to you to build a wall?....get your head out of that alternate reality.

And how do we start fixing that while letting in infinity low skilled third worlders? Oh wait you can't.

Before we fix anything, we need to stem the flood if illegal immigrants abusing those programs.

Also blah blah, popular vote blah blah. Who cares? You know what the electoral college is for, right? Only sore losers care about the popular vote.

Here's what none of you thought through: The government is prevented from accepting "conditional gifts". The money you donate will go to Congress, not Trump, and they will decide how it's spent. Doesn’t matter how much you raise. Nancy Pelosi will get to decide how it is spent; and I guarantee it won't be on a wall. The Dems take over in January. So say good bye to that money.

...all pretty meaningless without national / local security, an empowered law enforcement and people's trust in law and order... just ask chicago, detroit, iraq, afghanistan, etc...
