Indeed, and you notice there aren't any people on their "advisory board" that have actual qualifications or experience in immigration matters or border security. Just people with an ax to grind.

Besides the childish nose thumbing, he seems to be saying it's a political emergency and not a national emergency. I'm sure the plaintiffs will be saving this tweet.

Those are direct quotes (inside the blockquote box) from the site... that's how they describe them...not my opinion.

Interesting they thought it necessary to include "American"...no doubt to reassure any prospective donors who might know what he looks like

I'm sure that if they make this work, the Trump administration would be more than happy to offer advice. :mrgreen:

If experience and qualifications don't matter for the presidency, why should they matter for advisory boards?

That desperate Republican gambit has been a complete failure. We have 2 years of evidence that they matter very much

I realize you didn't invent the lies, but since you were repeating those lies here I just thought you might like to know that what you posted was BS.

GoFundMe Wall Update:
Q&A

⭐How are you actually building the wall? It is legal to do this? Do you have agreements from people to build on their land already?
We have a team of our nation's leading experts in Construction, National Security, Law, Finance and Politics. Our experts have researched and concluded that we can build the wall mile by mile for 50% of the current price that the US Government pays. We will utilize private property along the border in high trafficked areas to build our wall sections. We have landowners right now, lining up to have us build on their land because they are SICK of being threatened by cartels, sick of the crime, and sick of our government's inability to act. Your donations will fund this, and save lives with every mile we build. This is 100% LEGAL, its on private property and the landowners we are speaking to want the wall.

⭐When do you start building?
We are estimating to break ground in months from now in Texas. Brian and the team is heading to Texas in the coming weeks to start talking with contractors, architects, and local law enforcement to begin finalizing the construction plans.

So you say that Trumps wall shows anti-brown people racism? Then how do you explain this one:
Marist Poll: Trump's Support Among Hispanics Jumps 19 Points Amid Shutdown

50 percent of Latinos support the job Trump is doing, a significant jump from the 31 percent who had the same answer in a December poll.

Not nearly as funny as inviting the national champions to the White House for cold hangderbers and then proudly posing for a photo
