North Dakota company that Trump touted gets $400 million border wall contract

YesMalarkeyHat Retweeted

NEW: North Dakota company that Trump repeatedly and personally pushed to receive a contract to build his border wall just received a $400 million contract. Officials had previously balked at awarding bid to Fisher, owned by a GOP donor. W/@NickMiroff:



$400 million for a few miles of something that can be readily defeated by $100 for one of these



Sidenote, I lived in Berlin in the late 80s/early 90s. What stopped people crossing that wall wasn’ t the wall so much as the minefields, ball-bearing guns and tens of guards 24/7 per mile paid for by the communist state. This wall includes none of that.

1. We know now that the wall has always been planned as a money maker



That's why trump always rejected any other possible solution to the immigration problem.

2. 'Round and 'round and 'round the money laundry spins...a juicy contract equals a campaign donation,

or some other quid pro quo. Thus the GOP uses Tax money to fund its ongoing and perpetual re-election.
