The wall itself will just add to taxes, the tariffs will ruin the economy.

@fernyx The tariffs will support domestic industry and help the economy.

I thought the wall was impossible? As in, it would cost more to build and maintain than the US has. Also, you're forgetting about ladders.

Also your forgetting about the armed border security agents stationed on the wall reader to kick ladders over.

@ZachZimmey How many armed border security agents would it take to cover 1900 miles of wall? Seems like an expensive endeavour. When I say "what about ladders" I'm pointing out that people will always find ways to come into a country illegally. It's not just about ladders, it's about the impossibility of making your border air-tight.

@cyber_onions I'm sure Trump would privately fund them with his billions ;)

By my calculations, if there were 10 guards for every mile and each guard got paid 40,000 annually, It would cost Trump 6,080,000,000 over 8 years.
