Where is trump getting

the money to be building a wall?! I have heard him say 3-4 times that the wall in many places is being built right now. He never says where they are getting the money. I got s feeling some more contractors will have to sue to get their money there are walls being built along the border.

FY 2018 spending bill allocated 1.6 billion for wall funding.

And, wasn't also previously authorized anyway, just not fully funded by the House?

The money is secured, but no money has been paid to the contractors constructing the wall.  Nor will it be paid per his orders until complete and inspected.

Start around 10 minute mark.  

 

 

So the wall is fully constructed prior to the first payment...and we have yet to finalize anything in regards to Mexico trade agreement.  Ive said numerous times, once the wall is complete, Mexico's narcoeconomy will have collapsed and they will be begging to pay for a wall to trade with the US.  

 

That may be negotiated in numerous ways...but Mexico in one form or another will be paying for the wall.

Re: Where is trump getting

could be schnur isn't reading everything the way it's printed...

 

An Irish painter by the name of Murphy, while not a brilliant scholar, was a gifted portrait artist. Over a short number of years, his fame grew and soon people from all over Ireland were coming to the town of Miltown Malbay, in County Clare, to get him to paint their likenesses.

One day, a beautiful young English woman arrived at his house in a stretch limo and asked if he would paint her in the nude.  This being the first time anyone had made such a request he was a bit perturbed, particularly when the woman told him that money was no object; in fact, and she was willing to pay up to 10,000 pounds.

Not wanting to get into any marital strife, he asked her to wait while he went into the house to confer with Mary, his wife.  They talked much about the Rightness and Wrongness of it.  It was hard to make the decision but finally his wife agreed, on one condition.

In a few minutes he returned.   "T'would be me pleasure to paint yer portrait, missus," he said "The wife says it's okay."I'll paint you in the nude all right; but I have to at least leave me socks on, so I have a place to wipe me brushes.”

T'is why we love the Irish
