anybody who thinks Trump was going to (or any of us believed he would) wait until Mexico handed over a big check for the wall BEFORE he started construction, are either incredibly dumb, or so frustrated that things didn't go their way that they're clearly still in the "denial phase" of things. clearly we're going to be laying out the money for this upfront - and i'm completely fine with that. i want this wall built sooner than later, and i don't care if it takes 10 years for these measures to get us our money back. when you buy Christmas gifts on your credit card, does your family member thank capital one for buying them what they always wanted? stop splitting hairs.
