    According to this story, the awful and expensive wall is likely to cost well over 15 billion. If Trump has any involvement in supplying companies it will probably be many times 15. Here's the latest.

    Tony, I think it will cost more than double that amount. The main reason is the "terrain" and getting workers who want to work there and stay in trailers at the job site. Also getting all the equipment there as well building materials. Especially don't forget "protection" day and night. Furthermore as soon as one piece is built the "ready piece" will attacked or damaged from the Mexican side or tunneled under. Then "the weather" the river will go beyond its banks and undermine the "wall"

    Logistics will be an disaster anyway you look at it. Just one big question: Have you ever seen an Government project which was on "budget" and in "time"??

    Take 30 billion and build modern steel mills. There are multiple avenues to benefit humanity instead of a wall that will only foster hate and discontent. Trouble with too much money is it creates paranoia.

    Agreed. Nothing ever costs what it's supposed to. Especially if tax payers (American not Mexican) are paying the bill.

    T.J. If the tax paying people fall for this, then this country is even more stupid then I ever thought. I bet now already that halfway they will be over budget and the people here will not complain about it. Also I bet that the drug traffic will continue as usual; they are very inventive; let alone "people" who will continue to enter via other ways than land.

    Spending 50 billion of taxpayers dollars on this insane wall while the country literally falls apart is just plain stupid and another candidate for the Ignoramus of the year award!

    Another funny thing which makes this "wall" obsolete is that they found an huge catapult on the Mexican side of the border with which they launched kilo's of drugs into the US. Furthermore they are also using drones now to drop the merchandise. Thus don't worry no shortage of "weed" or the stronger stuff in the near future.

    I guess if Trump keeps spending millions on his outings to his "palaces" then there won't be any money left for the "wall"

    Just kidding.
