Trump wants 5.1 billion for the wall. Take it from the defense budget.

He just raised his request to I believe 730 billion, Trump has said the immigrants are like an invading army. Well, we need defense than and the money will come from the defense budget. I also believe that the wall will cost a lot more but if it does, it comes from the defense budget .

1. No.

Instead cut $5.1 billion from the defense budget and they'll never feel it.

Use the money for health care, infrastructure, education, etc.

We don't need no stinking wall.

2. Better yet, scrap the entire detestable project altogether.

Not a damn cent should go to anything so utterly useless and wasteful. Itís all based on xenophobia cranked up to a psychotic pitch, as befits the Fox-News-whites-only view of the world around us.

If built, Trumpís wall would be as effective at halting immigrants as Franceís Maginot Line was in stopping Germany in 1940. It would only be a costly testament to Trumpís delusional worldview.

3. Just yesterday,

 

He claimed Mexico would be paying for it via the new NAFTA agreement. Why hasn't any reporter asked him why he needs even one dime of taxpayer money?

7. Take it from nowhere.

$5.1 billion isn't enough to even get started...and since Trump has asked for $25 billion in the past, why is he even bothering asking for a fifth of what he used to think it was going to take?
