Now I know what you’re thinking.
Less than two miles seems like a very small amount.
But this is the patented Jeb! Bush low-energy approach that will appease the media and get the RINOs in Congress aboard. If the Wall creeps across the border a few inches a month, no one will notice and no one will object and call Trump a racist.
It’s all part of the plan, fam.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has put up just 1.7 miles of fencing with the US$1.57 billion that Congress appropriated last year for President Donald Trump’s wall along the Mexican border, a federal judge was told.
A lawyer for the U.S. House of Representatives provided the information Tuesday to the judge in Oakland, California, who is weighing requests from 20 state attorneys general and the the Sierra Club to block Trump from using funds not authorized by Congress to build the wall.
“The administration recently provided updated information to Congress on the status of its efforts as of April 30, 2019,” the attorney, Douglas Letter, said in a court filing. “Based on that updated information, it appears that CBP has now constructed 1.7 miles of fencing with its fiscal year 2018 funding.”
That was 3/4 of a mile more than the administration reported at the end of February, Letter said.
The good news is that the Wall was always just a metaphor for WINNING and owning the libs in the minds of his supporters.
Furthermore, anyone who raises an eyebrow is a hater. That’s the new talking point from the White House.
So the money isn’t going towards new walling, it’s going towards updating the old fencing.
Yet another smooth redirection and slick reassurance, lest anyone starts to get worried about the direction that MAGA has taken. If anything, the whole Trump experiment was a very instructional exercise in how mass democracy works.
Apparently, most normies don’t really care about what politicians promise - even if they say they do. Results don’t matter, only the rhetoric does.
You’d think it would be the opposite, but Orange Man has even taken it a step further and proven that it doesn’t really matter if you stay consistent or not. You can go from MAGA to whatever it is that we have now - Jewish mass-immigration neocon anti-socialism - and your normie supporters won’t notice.
They’ll just cheer you on anyway.
