How to Build Trump's Wall - Privatize It

How to Build Trumpís Wall - Privatize It

Republicans have often found a way to tax people surreptitiously by privatizing many public works projects to corporations rather than have govít pay for it. A fee is a tax under another name.

The corporations/investors are granted a multi-year license with a guaranteed profit.

This could also be done with Trumpís Wall with Mexico.

Corporations/investors front the money to build it and they will be paid by Mexico.

It gives republicans a chance to save the govít money and show their confidence in Trumpís word that Mexico will pay for it by investing in it.

No govít backed bonds.

No cost to the govít,,, no need for taxes,,, profit for the patriotic investors who believe in Trump.

Win win all around.

Even Trump can show his patriotism and shrewd business savvy by investing in it.

1. Mexico is not gonna pay for the wall, and border state congressional republicans aren't clamoring

for a wall either.

The wall is a dumb idea. Only one who thinks it is a good idea is the dummy who came up with it.

It is an interesting idea to have businesses pay for it but businesses want to make money, not pay for boondoggles

2. No, really, FUCK THE FUCKING WALL.

It's a goddamned garbage idea to begin with. Nobody who actually lives along the border wants it, and it's just a fucking stupid idea from a fucking sociopath's campaign. One who will be RICO'd into oblivion at some point hopefully not too far in the future.

Don't play along with the brain farts of a lunatic, it just gives them legitimacy.

3. Trump should pay for it out of his own pocket and build it by himself.

They could livestream in on YouTube.

Donnie's Texas summer project...
"So hot, you have to believe the sweat and sunburn"
We could watch him brick and mortar.
We can watch him sweat...alot
We can watch him loose weight

He could make it a reality show and call it Celebrity Fit Challenge: Build the Wall

4. Three non-republicans so far with little confidence in Trump

We need some loyal republicans to support Trump.

5. Just put 100,000,000 ads on it. Problem solved.

Border wall - brought to you by McDonald's, indeed.com, namely.com, every prescription drug ever, Papa John's, Geico, Universal Studios, and Viagra single packs.

8. Love this! Cut out the

middlemen! Instead of paying coyotes, the soon-to-be undocumented would pay a fee to the wall-builders in order to climb over (or dig under.) Sorta how T envisions his infrastructure plan with all those toll roads.

9. Thanks 4 the Propaganda ....

But a wall is not necessary... I know because I have lived in the area for almost half a century...
In any case...
neither Mexico Nor any private firms are going to pay for a wall.... certainly no one will front money for a project which is non-revenue generating in nature.....

Perhaps you were left out of the latest strategy session ...
The game plan is to bilk the US tax payers by allocating funds & awarding a contract to whoever Trump owes/ promised it to....

Then down the road the contractor will have received incremental payments = substantial $$$ for alleged completion of non-tangible stages of project then default & walk away.


Save the savvy business line of bs for some other guppies

12. The literal wall he droned on about and that energized his campaign will suddenly become a metaphor

Trump and his handlers will insist he never meant a "real" wall and that the fake media is lying. Instead he will accept any minor tweak to current border security and insist that is what he always intended. A big, beautiful, metaphor. The idea that Mexico would contribute was always just a metaphor as well. He was never serious about it. It is the lying media again. A majority of those that voted for Trump will be satisfied. Then he will put his signature on another signing statement he did not even take the time to read nor understand, hop on Air Force One to one of his resorts, and he will refuse to discuss the topic further.

That is my best guess to how this plays out.

13. And the tolls are collected from whom, exactly? Drug dealers? Coyotes?
