The border wall may now function to keep Americans from fleeing the USA.

Trump turns to his trusted aide and says,

"Isn't this the most beautiful wall in the whole world? Oh look , there's a camera man. Pass me that bible.!"

Trump: "My administration has done more than any administration in history to secure our southern border,"

And that's with all the opposition from the Democrats and the media. Heck, the Mexicans have done more to secure the border than the Democrats.

Biden called Trump's visit reckless as Arizona passed 50,000 confirmed cases and 1,300 deaths related to COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.

"Yet once again, instead of doing the hard work needed to solve the public health and economic crises facing America, Donald Trump remains focused on his expensive, ineffective, and wasteful 'wall' on our Southern Border," Biden said in a statement.

Biden's a doddering fool.

The United States, which accounts for about a quarter of the world's coronavirus cases and deaths 

We do more testing. And I wonder how many of these "coronavirus" deaths are actually deaths due to old age and underlying conditions.

Into Mexico? Hahahahahahahaha! Yeah, right! Tell me anther one! LMAO!

but we all know, as the media's silence on the subject confirms, that the virus can be cured by riots.

I'm not sure who the 'we' referred to might be. I haven't read that anywhere, but then I don't read fringe/kook media. I don't want to make Putin nor any of the other 'elites' backing those sites richer by clicking on them. Could you provide a link?

 Trump visited a portion of the wall in San Luis, Arizona

This must be part of the Trump Wall paid for by Mexico.

This is funny. A mock wall just to appeale to voters - even vaguely sane people know that the "wall" will never look like this.

Trump is a very silly man.

Trump enjoys strong support among evangelical Christians 

Though that support is wavering, too.

Biden would say they ain't black.

The fact remains, k-pop fans bought out tons of tickets so that others couldn't attend. 

Except that's not only not a 'fact,' but a flat-out falsehood.

The 'tickets' were available in unlimited supply, and then people were to be allowed in 'first come, first serve' at the rally site. This was stated not only prior to the event when Trump and his campaign was bragging about their 'million tickets' but afterwards as well.

In other words, the campaign could have issued out 7.8 billion 'tickets,' and it wouldn't have affected anyone's ability to attend. But what is fact is that only 6,200 people attended the Tulsa rally.

That's not what the people of the nation of CHAP think. They erected a wall/border AND have armed security that carry AR-15 so judging by supported this new nation has, it doesn't seem what they're doing is a waste of time, so we can apply that same concept here, these people have proven that walls and guns and borders do indeed work....based on frightened people.

Fake news. Nobody was prevented from attending by K-popsters. Entrance was first come first served.

he autographed a plaque commemorating the 200th mile of freshly built wall.

thought there were only 3 miles of new wall built according to posters here?

-5 ( +7 / -12 )

Less than 20 miles of actual new wall.

No, that's NOT true.

President Trump will travel to the southern border Tuesday to attend a ceremony celebrating 200 miles of completed border wall construction under his administration, according to the White House.

The Trump administration maintains that significant portions of new wall will be finished during the time remaining in Trump's term. Army Corps Commanding Gen. Todd T. Semonite said the Corps will put up 450 miles of wall, including some that replaces old barriers, by November 2020. Trump vowed during the State of the Union address in February to build “substantially more than 500 miles” of wall by early 2021.

LOL! A failed PR stunt to feel better about his poor rally and his walk of shame from the helicopter. When you hide in a bunker, you gas the peaceful protesters and walk to a church holding a bible backwards and upside-down.

But, when you have failed rally, you go to another failed promise like the border wall.

To trump supporters. If there were a lot of walls, the tour would be conducted by a helicopter, trump would love the photo of of him boarding a helo to inspect his hundreds of miles of wall. Instead, you get what you got; another photo op in front of a piece of wall, not hundreds of miles of wall. Mexico was supposed to pay for this or have you forgotten? I imagine you've also forgotten the leaked phone conversation of him pleading with the Mexican president to pay for the wall. Bolton also says that trump pleaded with Xi to help him win the 2020 election. For the tough macho guy you guys adore, he sure does a lot of pleading. Tik Tok, the time for the election is fast approaching.

Trump enjoys strong support among evangelical Christians and has touted a re-opening of churches, despite...

... despite no evidence of Trrump having any faith or caring about religion.

Admittedly on that point, we have something in common, but at least I don't pretend to believe in something just to get votes.

I wouldn't call 6.7 viewers and 200 miles of the wall a shame. Huh??? I would call that a huge. Even Dems can't spin that, but don't worry, I'm sure they'll try to conjure or use some Jedi-hypnotic spell into making you think the facts are not facts, but what they want you to believe are facts.

In the words of Steve Schmidt, “Trump is a fool. He’s an imbecile.”

The Mexicans have not paid a dime. This is an objective fact.

He has not built much wall and most of it is replacement fencing. This is an objective fact.

The wall is not “impenetrable”. It has been breached multiple times with inexpensive easily available tools. This is an objective fact.

Any argument to the contrary is contrary to objective fact and suggests a lack of intelligence and/or instability.

A poll released earlier this month by the nonprofit Public Religion Research Institute found that the share of white Catholics viewing Trump favorably had fallen by double digits since last year, measuring 37% in the last week of May compared with 49% across 2019. The same poll found Trump’s favorability among white evangelicals at 62% in May, a level comparable to 2019’s — but 15% less than it was in March.

Again, not true overall.

Thank God for the secondary wall which is the entire point, so even if they can get past one, it takes time and slows them down and makes it easier to apprehend them, so it's doing exactly what it was designed to do.

Joined by McSally, Trump visited a portion of the wall in San Luis, Arizona, in a dusty, barren landscape where the temperature was 102 degrees Fahrenheit (38.9 degrees Celsius). 

And as Trump and McSally talked, an 8 year old Mexican girl climbed the fence in a few seconds, then went over and asked Trump if she could take her to visit her illegal mother who works at Mar-A Lago....

Google has everything to do with how they program their proprietary computation or algorithms if you prefer to re-circulate the same articles pertaining to that crucial voting block. Now why would that be?

President Trump has built just three miles of primary wall

That helicopter overview was longer than 3 miles, maybe in the liberal unicornverse of mythical imaginary calculations, but most sensible people can see or even drive along the wall and see, not to mention the hundreds of videos out there, let's face it, liberals lost on the wall and the only thing they can is make stuff up, disparage it or just have a childish outbreak, none of which will change the fact that the wall is here, getting very close to completion and thank God for that, 

on the U.S.-Mexico border where no barrier existed before, a new report from Customs and Border Protection said.

The report, obtained by The Washington Post,

Bezos.....

found that while 194 miles of wall have been built the vast majority of 'new' wall was replacing old wall.

Yes, NEW and IMPROVED and 21st century state of the art. Even the border patrol agents have this cool new mobile observation tower and lined the Rio Grande with dozens of stadium flood lights as well as motion activated lights in harder to see areas, FANTASTIC!

Later, in Phoenix, he will meet with young people at the Dream City Church.

What the trump supporters fail to realize by not reading more is trump's wall will never be built, and he is a failure. He can't extend the wall because it will have to cross private land. Then the US government will have buy the land or seize it. The owners don't want either to happen. It is problem for Dawnie because they are mostly his supporters!

Therefore, he is trying to scam everyone into believing that he is keeping his promise by repairing the wall already built and claiming to have built 200+ wall.

They don't have to do that. So the liberals don't have to panic, but what will happen is there will be more technology as well as increased patrol presence.

Biden called Trump's visit reckless as Arizona passed 50,000 confirmed cases and 1,300 deaths related to COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus. 

...Trump on Tuesday held fast to his claim that the spike in U.S. cases in multiple states was due to testing, not increased spread of the disease.

Black Lives Matter. Black Walls don't.

The black paint of the idiot's request is costing anywhere from 500 million to 3 billion dollars. With only 200 of 1300 miles done, it still has a ways to go, and the overall cost is upwards of 45 billion dollars, with at least 3/4's a billion a year maintenance, thereafter, without the inevitable unforeseen costs. Someone is going to punch a lot of holes in it, and topple it over in many places, as well.

I hear Mexico is going to pay for the wall, Donald, you imbecile.

One predictable thing is the black wall is going to provide a canvas for wall art. Go, Banksy, Go.

Doesn't matter what it is called. It can still be defeated with ladders, shovels, or saws. Or maybe they can be called replica ladders, shovels, or saws.

Red State Governors botching and bungling just like Trump - Trump kills his supporters, these Governors kill their residents...

Thats cute because a recent news story shows Chicago shootings at over 100 in just a few days. The CHOP has had 3 shootings, and Dem mayor is back tracking on summer of love defense. Interesting how she snubbed Trump but is now backed into a corner. Other Dem cities are in chaos. Please be transparent in your reports.

Your COVID blame is also getting tired because, if you were attentive, you would of noticed that during the peaceful riots, when people were entering stores, they werent getting their temp checked. A new protocol was in play; break the glass, enter, get whats yours? then run out. No monitor to take their temp as they would of been beat down. Concern for the virus and surfaces wasnt a priority.

Looking at my US coinage, I see an image of George Wash and on a bill, I see Andrew. Should I send it back to the treasury? Im getting offended.

The images of George Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Jackson on all coinage and paper bills must go.

"In God we trust,"

gotta go.

Dont cash your Trump check just yet, Lincolnman. The bills you get might have an image of Jackson on them.

Ben was also white, something was wrong with him.

It helps when you read the article before posting;

For a second consecutive week, Arizona, Texas and Nevada set records in their coronavirus outbreaks, and 10 other states from Florida to California were grappling with a surge in infections. Texas reported over 5,000 new infections on Monday, a single-day record for the state. It has also seen COVID-19 hospitalizations hit record highs for 11 days in a row.

Your COVID blame is also getting tired because, if you were attentive, you would of noticed that during the peaceful riots, when people were entering stores, they werent getting their temp checked. A new protocol was in play; break the glass, enter, get whats yours? then run out. No monitor to take their temp as they would of been beat down. Concern for the virus and surfaces wasnt a priority.

With regards to attentive, at least I read the article before posting something completely off-topic. And yes, all those pro-Trump, white supremacists that were looting and rioting ought to get tested - don't you think?

Sure, send it back to the Treasury and tell them you want it applied to the "wall", since Mexico hasn't paid for it yet...

all these jars of pennies lincolnman. Im getting worked up

get them out of here!

Im offended by your name also!

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

because there are more than 200 miles of total wall, not 3.

Really? How about the other 1,800 miles? Besides the only NEW wall is 3 miles. Trump's new wall is as much of a failure as TrumpCare

Hey @Black

I just built.a new house but it doesn’t count because there was an abandoned house on the land before that?

no I have a new house which I built to replace a useless one

LOL! How is that analogy working out for you?

Smugglers are sawing through new sections of Trump’s border wall

0 miles of road exist if none of it is “new”.

at least according to the “logic” people here trying to use.

But I guess it also depends on if Trump built it, and who paid for it as to whether ”a road” even exists at all.

A 100 mile section of a 200 mile road is repaired, so how long is the road after the repairs?

But it's still paid for

2,000 miles with Mexico paying for it reduced to mostly replacement fencing.

Trump fans sure seem comfortable with lowered expectations. Perhaps they feel they don't really deserve better anyway.

According to liberal logic:

A wall at our southern border: bad

Walls surrounding CHOP in Seattle and CNN headquarters in Atlanta: good

that the virus can be cured by riots.

its certainly cant be cured when millions flood parks and beaches during labor day, opening too early also is helping it to spread as shown by spikes in Florida and Texas.

200miles of new wall 1800 miles to go, good luck

And 3 miles is still 3 miles. Ladders are still ladders

On the other side of the wall, people from Central and South America are being shown the latest designs in shovels and ladders!

So when lefties try to say Trump failed on a campaign promise, they don't realize how foolish they sound. We still support Trump.

when the going gets tough the dumb double down on the same losing horse

Imagine believing that Mexico was going to pay for bits of fence.

OK, Trump supporters, help us understand;

During the "Emptysburg Address" in Tulsa, Trump said;

*When you do testing to that extent, you’re going to find more people,” Trump said during the rally. “You’re going to find more cases. So I said to my people, *‘Slow the testing down, please.

The next day, his spokesperson, said;

*It was a comment that he made in jest,”** White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said at a news briefing Monday, adding: “Any suggestion that testing has been curtailed is not rooted in fact.*

Then Peter Navarro said;

*White House trade adviser Peter Navarro asserted Sunday the president never issued such an explicit directive, telling CNN that *Trump’s remarks were “tongue-in-cheek.”

Then today, the President says;

“I don’t kid. Let me just tell you. Let me make it clear,” Trump told reporters, when pressed on whether his comments at a campaign event Saturday in Tulsa, Okla., were intended as a joke.

So, Trump said he directed a slowdown in testing, then his spokesperson and Trade Secretary said no, that was a joke, then Trump says today it wasn't a joke....

Explain that to us....

2 ( +5 / -3 )

simple:

Fauci says Trump hasn't ordered slowdown of coronavirus testing

"It's the opposite,” Fauci said in response to a question referencing Trump's remarks. “We’re going to be doing more testing, not less."

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

Trump fans sure seem comfortable with lowered expectations.

As long as the wall is built, who cares?

Perhaps they feel they don't really deserve better anyway.

The wall is what we deserve, so I'm cool.

So, Trump said he directed a slowdown in testing, then his spokesperson and Trade Secretary said no, that was a joke, then Trump says today it wasn't a joke....

Cuomo is getting grilled as well, so many elderly died on his watch for putting so many seniors in nursing homes. Will he ever face charges?

simple: Fauci says Trump hasn't ordered slowdown of coronavirus testing. "It's the opposite,” Fauci said in response to a question referencing Trump's remarks. “We’re going to be doing more testing, not less."

But Trump said he did order less tests, then said today it wasn't a joke - so you think Trump made a mistake, twice? OK....

And you believe Fauci over Trump, even when you said this on another thread? OK.....

"Trump doesnt listen to Fauci". Fine, we listened to him, at your shrill request. He failed us all.

And why did McEllaney and Navarro lie and say it was a joke?

1 ( +4 / -3 )

dont care. Just saying your hero Fauci said the testing is more not less. so that should make you happy. Regardless of who said or didnt say what.

you know. what is actually happening, instead of your constant manufactured drama.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

dont care

A wise response to Trump’s incoherent gibberish. Defending it is impossible.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

Explain that to us....

Seems pretty obvious. Trump said he has slowed down testing. One official said it was a joke. Another official said the same. Then Trump said he doesn't kid.

Trump fans don't need to explain. Having his knee on their necks feels natural to them.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

and yes Fauci did fail us all, and has lied to us/misled us with wrong information numerous times.

But according to your John Bolton/Michael Cohen rule: if I like what he says once, I can ignore that he is a liar, once. until he says something else I like, then repeat.

Fauci said testing is increasing, so it is.

-4 ( +4 / -8 )

OK, just to summarize here;

Trump says he's decreasing testing - but you don't believe him....

Dr Fauci, who you say failed us, you DO believe when he says testing is not decreasing and contradicts Trump...

Trump-world - where you disbelieve your Sainted Leader but do believe those "that have failed us"....

I guess you have to be in it to understand it...

3 ( +6 / -3 )

as said, I dont care about your manufactured drama of who said what.

testing is increasing, which is good.

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

same as the wall. Dont care who said what, who paid for it, if some dude made a replica, how much is new, how much is replacement. do not care, at all.

All I care about is the fact that there is 200 miles of wall, with more to come.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

Trump fans don't need to explain. Having his knee on their necks feels natural to them.

Yeah, like rioting comes so naturally to liberals.

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

as said, I dont care about your manufactured drama of who said what.

testing is increasing, which is good.

Testing is increasing? President Trump said it was DECREASING, and when two of his staff said he was joking, he said "I don't joke"....

So you think your President is a LIAR....

Good...we made progress today...
