Trump's Wall of Stupidity.

A military Gray Eagle Drone cost about $5 million each. Even set at a low altitude below any clouds (rare in that part of the country), the camera on the Drone should be able to scan across a lot of miles. With $5.7 billion, Trump could buy 1,140 Gray Eagle Drones. A wall, given the complexity of such a project in that region will likely cost many multiples of $5.7 billion. In essence, Trump could cover every mile of the border, establish quick reaction stations along the whole border and maintain Drones for years with a fraction of what that fool wants to spend on an ineffective and useless wall.

1. He probably knows the financial aspects. But he also knows his supporters like monuments to bigotry

and hatred, hence The WALL

2. Aaah!

And the drone could be launched immediately since this is an "emergency" situation. Why does he want a wall that would take years to build?

Oh, wait. Never mind.

4. His wall is all a stupid ploy, he does not really care about effective border security.

I apologize for the late reply, spent all day working on three issue. Normally I can multi-task decently, but today required too much attention to detail.

6. That will work. Except the last person to have a similar name

actually made a good deal. Doubt that Trump will ever see history applaud his wall.
