Is it really a surprise that the most fake real estate “developer” in the world grossly underestimated the costs of a building project? It looks like that’s exactly what Donald Trump did, because he’s back to begging Congress for money for his border wall.
Get ready for another fight, because Trump is now asking Congress for an additional $8.6 billion to help pay for his wall. This is about 6% more money than all the billions Trump has managed to acquire from his emergency declaration.
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow confirmed the new request today in an interview, saying that “I suppose there will be [a fight over the request] … He’s going to stay with his wall and he’s going to stay with the border security theme. I think it’s essential.”

Trump has played up the idea that he’s this great real estate developer genius for decades now, but all he has really done is licensing deals and put his name on buildings someone else built. He has no idea what he’s doing, which is why he so deeply underestimated the cost of his wall. Even with his emergency declaration that is temporarily allowing him to rob the Pentagon of billions, it’s still not enough. That’s how expensive his wall is.
An administration official “speaking on condition of anonymity” revealed the fairly obvious purpose behind this new wall funding request that will definitely be denied, “It gives the president the ability to say he has fulfilled his commitment to gain operational control of the southwest border.” This is going to be feed for his base in an attempt to win the 2020 election. This is all nothing more than a show, because that’s all Trump is, a real T.V. show actor.
