Donald Trump began his run for the Presidency by spear heading the push for a border wall. He was the only candidate to talk about it at the time. Cynics have mocked his proposal from day one.
However they always mocked Trump’s candidacy in general, and look who won. The voters wanted Trump as President. And they also want a border wall.
Liberals say that a border wall could never be built, brushing aside the facts and statistics provided by The Donald. However, the Left needs to get it through their head the Trump ALWAYS follows through on his promises. Check it out according to Patriot Journal:
“In just a few weeks, contracts will be awarded to build the wall along the southern border, which stretches more than 2,000 miles. Thanks to natural obstacles, a wall will be needed along approximately 1,000 of those miles.
The federal government contracts website has listed the opportunity, and companies interested in the work will need to submit prototypes and concept papers for their design.
The deadline for proposals and costs is March 24. This is why Trump at CPAC said the wall is ‘way, way, way, ahead of schedule.’”
Since it is obvious that the wall will be built, the next question is, will the project go the way of every other government enterprise and end up being finished years late and wildly over budget?
For the first time in history, the president of the United States is a builder, and a business negotiator. If Donald Trump manages this construction hands on, it is hard to believe that that will happen.
And once this precedent is set, the pressure will be on for future projects (such as those infrastructure initiatives that Trump also has his eye on) to follow suit.
If anyone can change the mentality of America’s government bureaucracy to embrace efficiency, that will be one of Donald Trump’s greatest legacies.
