For some one critical of Barack Obama signing executive orders President Trump has certainly done his share in his first week as our fearless leader.
The latest is to build his border wall, and restore torture.
The wall is estimated to cost between $8 billion, Trumps numbers, upwards to $20 billion, more realistic. And he wants to hire 5000 more border patrol people. Again another Ronald Reagan who wants smaller government but who added to the national debt and grew government.
His plan to pay for the wall is to ask Mexico to pay the tab. Mexico has politely told Trump to stick the wall where the sun don’t shine. They didn’t ask for the wall. If they don’t pay he will take that money from the $57 million we give Mexico in foreign aid.
Watch out Trump, you may be starting a trade war.
And then he wants to start to start torturing those who pose a threat to our government, like water boarding. He asked his advisors what they thought of the idea and he said they all thought it was a good idea. I have news for you; if you work for Trump you had better agree with him or out the door you go.
Senator John McCain who was a prisoner of war is totally against it as are other members of Congress. He has also threatened to cut off federal aid to cities who protect illegal immigrants. He wants them deported and cares nothing about ripping children born in this country from their illegal parents.
What have we elected?
