Why do you feel we need a border wall with Mexico?.
"Doubling down on a failed policy of border militarization by adding more fences and walls is not only moronic because it would continue, at great cost, a demonstrably counterproductive strategy for restricting immigration — but it is also senseless because net undocumented migration from Mexico has stopped. Trump appears not to have received the memo. By the Department of Homeland Security’s own estimates, the total undocumented population peaked at 12 million in 2008, fell by a million by 2009, and since then has fluctuated around 11 million people."
And even if we needed one, prisons are no longer built with walls for good reason; too expensive and ineffective. Razor wire topped fencing with pressure sensors is the way to go.
Then you simply send a drone from the office, much more cost effective than the army with binoculars currently in use.
Also, leaders need to have at least some measure of humility when learning on the job.
Trump has none, unfortunately arrogant people don't learn by their mistakes. Every marked police unit was on the road here January 17', in a show of force during the inauguration.
As if to say, "I'm in charge now". No other President in history I know of has felt the need for this.
This country was founded on greed, and it will fall by greed. For the record, I've disliked EVERY President since JFK; as none of them have the balls to do the right thing.
That being the removal of private banking interests from our political process:
"A typical federal election cycle now
involves at least $7 billion in campaign financing,
and billions of dollars more in corporate lobby-

financing. Because of profoundly damaging
Supreme Court decisions, most especially
Citizens United, billionaires and large corpora-
tions are able to make enormous and essentially
untraceable campaign contributions to candi-
dates. There is a strong and correct feeling
among Americans that the government does
not serve their interest, but rather the interest
of powerful lobbies, wealthy Americans, and
of course, the politicians themselves. Political
scientists such as Martin Gilens have shown that
only rich Americans have real input into political
