I did not say there would be any 2/3 vote, though there might be. I said, " THEY DO NOT NEED HIS SIGNATURE, TO MAKE IT LAW!" Find some schematics of this proposed wall. I'd like to see what this barrier looks like.
Why not a few hundred guys armed with flamethrowers? A lot cheaper, and very effective, plus you only have to stop a guy, one time. Cuts way down on repeat offenders.
That's like saying the 7 doesn't have to show in a million tosses....sure, they don't need his signature....BUT, they need his signature or it ain't happening.....capish.
Here is an example of the type of people he is up against...
Here is a brief summary of Romney’s history of backstabbing Trump — often after seeking, and receiving, his help:
February 2012: Romney seeks, and receives, Trump’s endorsement in the Republican presidential primary, beating several other contenders who wanted the billionaire’s backing. The Romney campaign proudly touted Trump’s nod. CBS News reported at the time, “Romney’s campaign formally unveiled the endorsement at an event in Las Vegas.”
March 2016: Romney delivers a speech in Utah devoted entirely to trashing Trump: “Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing the members of the American public for suckers. He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat.” However, with the primary still undecided, Romney declined to support any of Trump’s rivals, meaning the speech amounted to little more than abuse. (Some of those present at the time speculated Romney was laying the foundation for a political comeback.)
November 2016: Romney, humbled by Trump’s victory, offers to join President-elect Trump’s cabinet, and seeks the job of Secretary of State. After meetings at Trump Tower, Romney fails to win the job — but issues a statementpraising Trump and thanking him for the opportunity: “It was an honor to have been considered for Secretary of State of our great country. My discussions with President-elect Trump have been both enjoyable and enlightening. I have very high hopes that the new administration will lead the nation to greater strength, prosperity and peace.”
February 2018: Romney receives Trump’s endorsement in the GOP primary for U.S. Senate in Utah and accepts it — despite having declared in 2016 he would not have accepted Trump’s endorsement if given the choice again.
These are not actions of an honorable man.
What do you find "wrong" with that first one? Did they NOT unveil it at a Las Vegas event?
To trash a candidate, is NOT the same thing as endorsing somebody else. I have no problem with trashing, as long as your statements are true, as these appear to be.
Guess his hopes ain't gonna come true, but Romney's worth is well indicated by the fact that he lost to Obama.
You seem to be a little preoccupied with Romney, who gives a shit what Romney is doing. Did he win the Senate seat? No he didn't, guess he don't know much about who's endorsement to except, does he?
i'm not preoccupied with Romney......just proving what a scumbag he is.......Romney did not lose the senate bid, he won the senate seat after Trump endorsed him..................this is a prime example of republicans eatting their own, while the dems stick together........It apppears Romney is looking toward 2020 and will be a pain in the Trumpsters ass.....one more fucking RINO.
777 .... .....
Wow, Romney won the seat, even after trumps endorsement? He must be one hell of a candidate, to be able to survive, even after trump tried to sabotage his campaign like that.
Fuckin Romney couldn't beat an inexperienced, black candidate, with zero experience....he dropped out of sight 2 weeks before the vote......he is a billionair that doesn't know how to win the big one........he will sabatage Trump....he'll try....the Trumpster will be waiting.....jealosy is a terrible thing.
Trump said he awarded 115 miles of wall construction. To whom did he award the contract? Maybe to "Baron Trump wall building LLC" ?
I wouldn't say "inexperienced" in that Obama was the incumbent. Obama also knocked Hillary out, without the help of the electoral college.
So, it's been two years now, and still no wall, what's the hold up?
Just a little update on Trump's wall. There seems to be a little confusion.
First, congress has approved zero dollars and zero cents ($0.00) for new wall construction.
Zero miles and zero feet of new wall has been constructed (0).
Hopefully that wasn't too complicated.
Sounds like 1 more yes vote, for impeachment. How many do we lack?
it will get as far as the house....there is zero chance the senate will have enough votes.....ZERO....going nowhere....777
Hang in there BS, there are plenty more turncoats, where Romney came from, just a matter of time. At the first sign of weakness, it'll be like a shark feeding frenzy. Just as so many of his cabinet, have flown the coop.
they haven't flown...he kicked their ass out.....my way or the highway.....NOBODY is indispemsible........you just haven't figured it out yet even though it is right before your eyes.....you know EXACTLY what he stands for...and how he is.....talk about transparency....there should be no surprizes when he does shit.....777
Transparency? Exactly what he stands for? Actually I have to agree with you on this part. I suppose even at the top, it's hard to find good help, probably even harder to find good Fascist help. Look up the word faciest, and you will see, fits trump to a tee.the real problem with it, is, that there are many people that, just like yourself, think they like it. It's a psychological thing man, people that like to step, on people they believe to be inferior.
better to live one day like the lion, than 100 years like the sheep.
I've seen many a "Lion" get his ass kicked.
It's down to showdown on the wall funding thing. Whoever flinches now, will appear very weak. I'd say trump can't take less than the full 5 billion at this point, without appearing like he buckled under. This shutdown could last a while. No problem, trump doesn't need a paycheck anyway.
Did you take a look at Wall Street today, looks like the market is "glitchin" again.
Looks like you got your wish, Polosi is Speaker again, yeah, #3 in line to the Oval Office. Can you imagine? Damn!
At this point, it's really about, how determined are the Republicans in the Senate, to stick it out with trump. This shutdown will determine who wears the jockstrap, in Washington, Polosi or Trump. If Trump is unable to win his battle, then I think he should go ahead and concede defeat to Polosi, and resign, give pence a crack at it. $5 Billion or fuck-it. Though I have some doubts as to how effective a wall would be, if trump knuckles-under to fuckin Polosi, he's done. This must be a fight to the death, it's time to RUMBLE!
For an imbecile like you, I guess a quick online search is too complicated.

Rafael Carranza, Arizona RepublicPublished 11:34 a.m. ET Dec. 26, 2018
TUCSON, Ariz. – The new year will bring the first new U.S.-Mexico border barriers to be built under President Donald Trump's administration.
The administration has so far announced eight projects to build new fence or replace existing barriers. Three of the projects have been completed; two are underway. Three others will begin during 2019's first half, including areas of south Texas that previously had no barriers.
More new fencing could soon follow.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has received more than $1.6 billion in fiscal years 2017 and 2018 for border infrastructure. That money is paying for the eight scheduled projects, and a few more that have not been announced yet. Homeland Security officials said more contracts will be awarded in coming weeks.
In late December, officials unveiled how additional money they've requested from Congress for border security would be spent. Those plans include more than 100 miles of completely new barriers, mostly along south Texas.
Here are the locations of the two projects expected to be finished in 2019 and the three construction projects slated to begin in 2019:
Rio Grande Valley, Texas
In February, crews will begin building 14 miles of levee walls just south of McAllen, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley – the busiest point for illegal entries along the southwest border.
Customs and Border Protection awarded two contracts worth a total of $312 million to SLSCO Ltd. of Galveston, Texas, to build the barriers.
The new barriers will be built on top of existing levees north of the Rio Grande, which tends to flood with seasonal rains. The barriers consist of the solid concrete levees built to their existing height, with 18-foot-tall bollard-style fencing at the top. The barriers will be built in six segments along the Rio Grande, Customs and Border Protection said.
East of these levee walls, a San Antonio-based company is installing at least seven gates along sections of the border fence north of the river that were built during the last decade.
That work is the first phase of a project to install 35 border gates.
The gates, besides stemming the flow of people and narcotics, are intended to give landowners access to their lands south of the barriers, as well as the Rio Grande to irrigate their fields.
Yuma and Lukeville, Arizona
In April, construction will resume along the Arizona-Mexico border as crews begin replacing 32 miles of existing primary fencing in the southwestern part of the state.
Twenty-seven of those miles are in Yuma; 5 miles are in Lukeville.
Customs and Border Protection awarded a contract worth $172 million to Barnard Construction Co. of Bozeman, Montana. It will work to replace 14 miles of aging, Vietnam-era landing mat fencing east of the San Luis port of entry.
Crews will remove the 18-foot-tall landing mats and install bollard-style fencing that's 30 feet tall.
Customs and Border Protection said it also plans to replace an additional 11.5 miles of landing-mat fencing east of that area, along with a 1.5 mile stretch of mesh-style fencing near the Colorado River. But the agency has not said when construction will begin.
Both Lukeville and Yuma have seen large groups of migrant families, some numbering as many as 150, crossing the border illegally in the last year and voluntarily turning themselves over to agents.
El Centro and San Diego, California
In July, construction crews will begin to replace 15 miles of primary fencing along the California-Mexico border. Eleven of those miles are in Calexico, 3 are in Tecate, and 1 mile is near Andrade, across the California-Arizona line from Yuma.
Customs and Border Protection awarded a contract worth $156 million to SLSCO of Galveston for the project. In its announcement, the agency said it also had awarded the company an additional $131 million contract to replace 14 miles of secondary fencing in San Diego.
All four segments will employ the 30-foot bollard-style fencing.
The San Diego-Tijuana border area has received attention in recent months as thousands of migrants traveling in caravans arrived there, hoping to seek asylum.
But with waits of up to six weeks to present their claims at the port of entry, many asylum seekers, and migrants with no plans to seek asylum, have been breaching the border illegally.
"Given the high-density population in San Diego-Tijuana urban area, the stronger infrastructure is critically important," Customs and Border Protection said in its announcement.
The three replacement projects that have been completed are in Calexico, California, El Paso, Texas, and Santa Teresa, New Mexico.
Work crews finished 2.25 miles of 30-foot-tall bollards in Calexico in October, the first project completed under the Trump administration. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen visited the site a few days later.
During her visit, the agency welded a plaque to the fence to mark "the completion of the first section of President Donald Trump's border wall," even though it was a replacement project.
A few weeks later, Customs and Border Protection completed the replacement of four miles of bollard style fencing near the Chihuahuita neighborhood in downtown El Paso. Unlike Calexico, CBP officials there did not mark the project's conclusion.
In November, crews finished 20 miles of vehicle fencing with 18- to 30-foot bollards in Santa Teresa, west of metropolitan El Paso.
Customs and Border Protection spent about $113 million to complete the three projects.
