  1. Department of immigration, said only 90 miles of existing border fence has been repaired. Only ONE mile of new border fence has been built. ONLY. ONE. MILE. Also half of it was blown over with wind. Trump failed. TRUMP FAILED

  2. So, what you're saying is that all these good / positive things would have happened … if not for Democrat obstruction.

  3. Why is any of this important? Trump is doing a better job than any career politician ever did. Trump 2020! A president that actually does what he runs on.

  4. You should be concerned about Bernie's promises. Because they are lot of hot air.
    Bernie is promising lot of free stuff to the needy. But the fact is, US government could not afford any of it. If Bernie forced his plans, he would need to stiffen taxation and borrow money. Both of which would lead to recession.
    Bernie's mad plans, if realized, would ruin US economy and would cause mass unemployment too in the process. Not that anyone in the democrat camp is smart enough to see this.

  5. He's way too obsessed with the wall. When he's done being president, I feel like he'll just move to the border and spend the rest of his days yelling at an empty field on the other side.

  6. Build the fence … build the fence … Build the fence … Oh ya I'm pretty sure he took money from the VA to pay for it but I guess some of the people in the military are Mexican … So I guess it's the same

  7. In less than 4 years crooked Trump sold and enslaved USA citizens. With the passage of crooked Trump's tax law of 2017, higher taxes for middle class taxpayers lower taxes for corporations and the wealthy. Higher internet connection prices. With crooked Trump, Net neutrality rules governing internet service providers are now gone. And the list goes on …

  9. Trump, singlehandedly defeated mainstream media and the whole system rigged against outsiders. Call him a conartist all you want, but my god he’s good at what he does.

  10. Aint gonna lie if i was a (white) american, he will the candidate. He just put a halt in china (corona virus), halt in the middle east (peace plan), and halt in drugs (border wall). But he forgot that these were the people made america great, not just your black entertainers.

  11. So he lied about "Mexico is going to pay for the wall?" Where's the outrage from the military? Trump hires illegals at all his properties.

  12. 🤔 maybe if he wasnt being MOCKED & BLOCKED 24/7 lol.
    Like Brexit, the remainers DRAGGED IT OUT 3 YEARS and kept blaming their PM 🤪

  13. He delivered over 180 promises. The best President ever. Who cares who pays for the wall? Just get it done to stop the crime.

  14. , kkkk everyone who likes wall please barks with me for Trump the word "wall" bark saying "wall, wall, wall' is funny, you too, please barks with me…

  15. Good. The sooner Americans understand that a lot of her problems come from illegal immigrants. The sooner we can tackle our own problems make America safer and then let more in the right way.

  16. Mexico has thousands of troops stopping illegal immigrants while we build the wall. It’s a joint effort and Mexico is indeed paying for it at the expense of their troops.

  17. What good is a powerful military Frontline, if you are going to leave the back door unlocked and open, Mr. President keep up the good work, and build that wall.

  18. I think it would be funny if people put dynamite incrementally along the wall & blew it all up! I know it would be a waste of OUR tax money, but it would still be funny. After all, Mexican people have been stealing pieces of it & the wind has been blowing over parts of it.

  19. More fake news from the communist.

    Mexico would have paid for the wall if Pelosi had not stalled the trade agreement.
    Its funny how you claim they are not building a wall, and others are complaining they are.

    They are working on getting rid of sanctuary cities.
    The deportation levels are lower because they are not coming in as fast.
    Trump did not do the separation of families, Obama did. Trump has started using DNA testing to find those that are not actually families and separating people that are sick from those not.
    He did not say they would have it, they would have started it.
    Border patrol says that is new walls.

  20. Progress? Regression is a better term for TRUMP’s promises. Regression into isolationism. Regression into Jim Crow laws towards minorities. Regression into religious bigotry comparable to Klu Klux Klan style thinking where one would have to be White Anglo Saxon Protestant (WASP) which is as anti-American as it can get.

  21. USA must stop criminal and terrorist activities around the world. USA must stop creating war, creating terrorism and creating terrorism fear around the world. America has killed few million people since the second world war. America is the only country has used the nuclear-bomb on people, everywher is America and there is terrorists, destruction and killing. America is making the world unstable and dangerous place. European and NATO are brain-dead and paralysed by America. The European and NATO is there just to support and cover up United state criminal activity around the world and criminal foreign policies.

  22. how about the soldiers from Mexico guarding the borders now,who pays them, the government of Mexico,of course,that is paying for the wall.

  23. Anyone with anything near a triple digit IQ knows a wall in the middle of nowhere in Texas isn't going to keep anyone out of the country. What we are building is the world biggest and most expensive racist monument.

  24. How much did he get done with the do nothing Democrats obstructing every move and then trying to pull a coup?
    Democrats need to stop crying and stop dividing our nation. #NeverGulags
    #GunBannersSUCK

  25. People, I'll tell you why that wall is useless. The area that is contiguous 48 states essentially has 4 sides. None of them are 'secure' as conservatives call it. They're all 'open' borders. You ONLY want to build a wall along that small portion facing people that aren't White. That's the goal, and it IS symbolic. Most arguments in its favor lack supporting data leading me to believe they're made up to justify it because the real reason (usually racism) isn't very popular, and most racists are in denial of their disease. They're like the alcoholic loved one everyone has. It's always something other than what it obviously always is. Over and over again until they look within and correct themselves.

  26. Let’s destroy capitalism because wage slavery is SLAVERY! There should be equal wealth worldwide and we the 99.98% must demonstrate to end it and call for a new system called EQUALITY WORLDWIDE WORLDWIDE!

  27. Cadet Bonespurs is going to change the name of the Dept of Defense to Military EXperts In Combat Operations…aka MEXICO…to keep his campaign promise. Bonespurs supporters can't remember anything but three word chants…Build The Wall…Lock her up…it's an oldie but a goodie….Drill Baby Drill…Take money for the DOD to build a wall that is defeated by ladders and tunnels….But don't cut a penny for education…Trump sure likes the poorly educated…..Keep them fat dumb and happy as he steals your future …and trust me he will come for your guns….."I like taking guns away early, Take the guns first, go through due process second." Trump 2/2018…that's nothing but a "Green Light" to state governments and the US congress to move forward with gun control laws….The right have be completely con-ed

  28. Of the one-thousand-nine-hundred-fifty-four/1,954 miles, that’s MILES, nearly 2,000 TWO-THOUSAND MILES mostly all of it open and UN-secured, the Southern border area is sparsely populated that entire length, less than one-tenth 1/10 of its stretch is inhabited : move about a dozen + existing Military Bases, with each allocated ~ 50 miles + in length, that alone would secure around ~ 600 miles of the Southern Border, in which their “proving” grounds would also be located, testing missiles and bombs from Jets, along with all other forms of “testing” proving weapons; thus this one common sense action of moving some Military Bases would resolve about 1/3 the discussions and expenses of the decades after decades and decades of porous border, tons upon TONS in illegal killer additive drugs each month, thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants each week after week, …..on and on and on… enough is enough, repeat the Government shut down, this time much longer, no additional “paid” (vacation) time off, send in the Troops en masse.

  29. 🇺🇸 No country survives the test of time without law and order.🇺🇸 When liberal states , judge and cities refuse to enforce immigration and other laws,Remember those who support such things lose any and all credibility to say things like, "Trump is not above the law!" If you won't obey laws you disagree with, then you have no right to expect anybody else to do so either. If laws are simply guidelines to you, then they will be the same for others.
