One of Trump’s famous rallying cries was “build the wall.” It was that and something like, “Aren’t you afraid of brown people too?” When Trump came into office, he had the House and he had the Senate and he was gifted the Supreme Court. He used all of that unpopular support to … give tax breaks to the rich. He and his fellow GOP also shifted around some money to build symbolic walls that do nothing except waste money and time and resources.
The Washington Post reports that one such section of Trump’s new impenetrable wall was either breached or attempts at breaching it were made about 18 times between Sept. 27 and Oct. 27 of last year. Each time, the cost to fix the breach was $620, according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection records.
