Well, have watched the 'speech.' Typical Goeballs propaganda. Mention every bad thing you can think of as emotively as you can and link them in a manner to imply that they are directly down to the lack of a Wall, and that the only solution is Donald's Wall.

Donald has had two years during which he controlled everything, and he did not manage to build his Wall.

This thing has become a cynical political pissing contest, nothing more, and Trump is doing a Howard (children overboard) ~ establish a demon, and tell the populace that the only way they will be safe from the Hordes is his way.

Nah.

TAKE THE SUGAR OFF THE TABLE...RAMP UP INTELLIGENCE AND OTHER RESOURCES. A WALL IS NOT GOING TO WORK. HOW FAR OUT TO SEA DOES IT GO?

Care to elaborate? Or do you just like to hurl insults.
His speech was full of misinformation and malice.

It's not an insult - it's just the truth.

Although, I have no problem insulting an alleged child rapist who mocks disabled people on live TV.

No problem whatsoever.
So you are back to insults and you haven't produced a single sentence of misinformation from his speech. Got it.
Well, I quoted two outright lies.

Here's some misinformation:
President Trump claimed "more Americans will die from drugs this year than were killed in the entire Vietnam War."

Some 58,220 Americans died as a result of the Vietnam War. In 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the number of total drug overdose deaths was 70,327.

Trump’s assertion is misleading: He is conflating the drugs coming across the US-Mexico border with total drug deaths in the US. In addition, it’s not currently known whether overdose deaths will increase or decrease when the CDC releases 2018 data later this year.

Trump’s figures do not distinguish between deaths caused by drugs smuggled into the country versus those prescribed by US doctors.

The majority of hard narcotics seized by Customs and Border Protection come through ports of entry either in packages, cargo or with people who attempt to enter the US legally. The only drug that is smuggled in higher numbers between legal entry points is marijuana, according to information from Customs and Border Protection and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Trump is siding with the American people and our border security forces in defining necessary border security as a physical barrier.

The Democrats complained about the cost of a concrete wall and Trump responded with a lower cost metal slat border wall.

You are complaining about differences of perception. Most Americans want a wall. The Democrats are only trying to get Trump to abandon his biggest campaign issue to separate Trump from his voters. That's why Trump won't back down. I'd be happy if the government stayed shut down and any "non essential" employees who have not been working should find other jobs. No other employer besides government has "non essential employees".

How have we exploited and disadvantaged others? How much do we send to South America and Mexico in foreign aid? That's where we need to get our border wall funds. We send them billions to fix their problems and quit exporting them to us and their politicians pocket it and screw their people and us also. We need to seal our Southern border and let these countries fix themselves. If they want to ask for help, we are here for them. All we are doing now is fueling the cartels with drug money and squelching industries in those countries by letting their people work here illegally and send money back home. Remittances are the biggest industry in several countries in South America and Mexico. That's money that could be fueling our economy if Americans had those jobs. The illegals come here and work off the record for a few years and after sending their money home, they retire like millionaires if they can avoid the cartels and crooked policia.

All of Washington is dragging their feet on the wall. The people have been clamouring for a wall for decades, but both parties have their crooked reasons for not building it. Trump went to the people demanding a wall and we elected him for that. He cannot back down and win a reelection. I won't vote for him if he backs down. I voted for him in spite of his personal life because he was the only person promising what I wanted. So far, he has done better than anybody I have ever voted for. He was worth it just for his judicial nominations. Seeing heads explode in the media has been very satisfying as well. My hope is that the Republican Party will wake up and follow Trumps lead. Trump is the result of the Tea Party after the rest of the Republican Party let us down.

El Paso TX has long been known as the safest big city in the US. Their murder rate has been very low. Around 2010-2012, they had less than 25 murders per year, while just across the Rio Grande in Juarez Mexico they were having 2-3k murders per year. What was the difference? Drug cartels run rampant and assassinate any politician that threatens them. The people are not allowed to own guns and are stuck between the cartels and corrupt policia. Anyone in El Paso who can legally own a gun can carry that gun concealed in their car. Texas has well over 1.2M people who are licensed to carry openly or concealed. These people have been background checked for criminal history, domestic violence, mental illness, child support or tax delinquency, or dishonorable discharge from military service. They have demonstrated proficiency with a firearm and been trained on concealed carry and deadly force laws. The average LTC holder commits crime at far less than 1/10 the rate of the average Texan according to data compiled and published annually by the state of Texas based on conviction records.

.............. Democrats Funded a 287 Mile Wall in Jordan – LAST YEAR! But Won’t Fund Border Wall in US!

Nancy Pelosi argued this week that “walls are immoral.”
Chuck Schumer called President Trump’s stand against open borders a “manufactured crisis!”

But less than one year ago Pelosi and Schumer approved funding on a 287 mile long border wall — in JORDAN!

Neil Munro at Breitbart.com reported at the time.

The 2018 omnibus provides just enough funds to build 33 miles of fencing on the Texas border — but it also provides $500 million to help Jordan build a wall and defense line against jihad terrorists trying to cross its 287-mile border with Iraq and Syria.

The omnibus budget says on page 394:

SEC. 9011. Up to $500,000,000 of funds appropriated by this Act for the Defense Security Cooperation Agency in ‘‘Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide’’ may be used to provide assistance to the Government of Jordan to support the armed forces of Jordan and to enhance security along its borders.

Democrats had no problem funding the wall in Jordan.
It was not an “immoral wall.”

And that was only 10 months ago! .................

Actually, the difference is decades of corruption by Mexican authorities and government. The cartels are now to big and to powerful to stop using conventional methods, not without causing a lot of deaths ... the only way to stop the cartels now is to take away their markets and legalise drugs

I told you, because of the corruption across the border. Honest Mexican police fear for their lives and that of their family members. The dishonest ones like the extra money that subsidizes their salaries. If the honest guys try to do anything about it, chances are that someone in their hierarchy is also being subsidized and their efforts are either for nothing, or cost them to much personally .... and so they do nothing.
US police generally aren't as concerned about cartels going after their families. They have the support of the police hierarchy and the politicos. It's a numbers game.

Right. I don't think the cartels want to threaten and murder American police. They've got a helluva good thing going as it is.

I suspect that the banking industry is infected with drug money, though. I think it gets laundered and eventually ends up in Wall Street institutions. It takes a circuitous route, creating plausible deniability for the banking industry. But the truth is, they know. I harbor dark suspicions that this corruption filters to our politicians and effects the border security debate, and it also effects how we deal with illegal drugs and addiction.

I think the US has proven many times that it willing to hit back much harder than they can, when provoked. The thought of a scud missle coming at your compound is probably enough to keep even the deadliest narco awake at night. Why push it when there is no need for them to go that far ...it's not like they aren't getting the drugs in anyway.

Without a doubt. Cash is no good if they can't spend it. Someone has to clean it for them.

I hope that bitch who was running their brothels for them gets raped with a cactus.

In Mexico the gringos aren't attacked, ...strictly in relation to the drugs turf wars atleast... it's the local population that is terrorsised because the tourists just fly away in a few weeks but the majority of locals basically haven't got that option.

In the end, who are they selling the drugs to?

It's anarchy, pure and simple!!

Get away from the border and the rest is just stranger danger.

This article gives an idea of the difference between USA and Aus societies, although it takes a bit of time for lots of Aussies to wake up to the lies. Seems no matter what pollies say in the USA, agaisnt all the verifiable evidence, the idiots believe the lies and never the truth. No wonder USA society is armed to the teeth they don't have a clue what the difference is between truth and lies, so they rely upon lies. Which is a great indication of the psychological state of the USA.

"Not just one, or two: How many lies a politician can tell before Australians distrust them."
