Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, February 16, 2019

Trump: "I built a lot of wall. I have a lot of money and I built a lot of wall." As of Friday, no new miles of wall have been constructed during Trump's tenure, but preparations are underway. Trump: "A big majority of the big drugs, the big drug loads don't go through ports of entry" It's unclear what exactly Trump is claiming here regarding "big drug loads," but the majority of hard narcotics seized at the border are coming through ports of entry, not between them as the President continues to claim.

"Trump: "President Obama put on more debt on this country than every president in the history of our country combined."

This is false.

"Trump: "China is paying us billions in tariffs."

The President has made this claim again and again, but this not really what's happening."

Long story short, they checked and found that the speech was virtually fact-free.

You know, like the base. And our local Trump Trolls.

None of this matters to the idiots who believe in him.

Their slogan is no longer "build the wall!" Now it is "Finish something that hasn't even started!!!"

And you can be your ass they wholeheartedly believe it has. little donnie dollhands said so.

The idiots who believe in him also believe him when he attacks the Constitution for being unconstitutional.

With logic and reasoning like that...

It's more cost effective for fact checkers to provide a list of what's true. Much shorter lists.

AP FACT CHECK: President Trump's border wall mirage

President Donald Trump on Monday presented the border wall as a work in progress, hailing the start of a "big, big portion" with much more coming soon. That's a hefty exaggeration from a president who has yet to see an extra mile of barrier completed since he took office.

With another possible government shutdown looming, and illegal immigration still at the heart of the budget dispute, Trump is pulling out the stops to portray his proposed wall as essential to public safety. As he's done repeatedly, Trump also defied the record in claiming that the wall that Congress has refused to pay for is rapidly coming together anyway.

TRUMP: "We've actually started a big, big portion of the wall today at a very important location, and it's going to go up pretty quickly over the next nine months. That whole area will be finished. It's fully funded ... and we're going to have a lot of wall being built over the next period of time."

THE FACTS: There's less going on here than his words convey. Construction is getting started on merely 14 miles (23 kilometers) of extended barrier, approved by Congress about a year ago in an appropriation that also authorized money to renovate and strengthen some existing fencing. The extension will be in Texas' Rio Grande Valley. That's not a "big, big portion" of the grand project he promised in his campaign and countless times since -- a wall that, combined with existing fencing and natural barriers, would seal the nearly 2,000-mile (3,200-kilomete) border with Mexico.

"Mexico will pay through reimbursement/other"

"Trade and tariffs will pay for it"

"The wall will pay for itself"

"US taxpayers pay or I will shut down the

"US communities hit by disasters will pay"

Military families will pay:

Tim Kaine @timkaine

-Removing lead from military housing
-Making overseas bases safer
-Upgrading hospitals that treat wounded troops

These are the types of projects military construction funding is supposed to pay for when it isn't stolen to build a wall that won't make us safer.

uh... as I mentioned before. Trump spent most of his career in real estate and construction. Yes. He's built a lot of wall.

CNN, FoxNews, NPR and mostly MSNBC play to the lowest common denominator to get the most buck out of their bang. They will take something innocuous like this and spin it. You bought it. Most CNN viewers buy it because it's what they want to hear. FoxNews does it with their evening shows, but CNN does it ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT LONG (all niiiight).

Face it. I said CNN is lying without even looking at the article and when called on it, I produced a very serious and obvious lie within 30 seconds of reading the article in the VERY FIRST PARAGRAPH!!! They said that they fact-checked Trump's speech. They did not. The first one is a lie.

You probably need to step back a little and see how you've fallen into Trump's trap. He's taking a page out of the Democrats book. He's got you saying things against border security and saying that you want open borders. Democrats have been playing to the lowest common denominator for decades and now Trump is doing it in reverse! He gets the Democrats to hate him and to battle HIM, not the issues. The outcome is that now you are against issues that are good for America. Yes, Trump is evil. I'll agree with that.

You can pretend that is what he meant and that you have exposed a major lie by CNN, but the rest of us know better and aren't buying it--or you (italics mine):

FACT CHECK: Trump Says 'A Lot Of Wall Has Been Built' As He Demands We Build More

Trump said:

"One thing that I do have to say is: Tremendous amounts of wall have already been built, and a lot of -- a lot of wall. When you include the renovation of existing fences and walls, we've renovated a tremendous amount and we've done a lot of work. In San Diego, we're building new walls right now. And we've -- right next to San Diego, we've completed a major section of wall and it's really worked well."

Despite Republican majorities in both houses of Congress, lawmakers have not approved such funding. In 2017, the president managed to secure about $1.6 billion for border protection projects, but they are primarily for fortifying existing border fencing, not expanding the current wall.

Just a reminder, Trump doesn't give 2 cents about the wall:

Where The Idea For Donald Trump's Wall Came From

Donald Trump's plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border did not come from security analysts following years of study or through evidence that a wall would reduce illegal immigration. Amazingly, for something so central to the current U.S. president, the wall came about as a "mnemonic device" thought up by a pair of political consultants to remind Donald Trump to talk about illegal immigration.

You keep posting irrelevant quotes from articles and all I'm saying is that the resonating truth here is that

DEMOCRATS DON'T WANT TRUMP TO BUILD A WALL. Any wall.

But, you knew that.

The wall is going to be built. It won't be a wall from the Pacific to the Gulf as the media continue to falsely report on, but Trump's wall will be built along with other border security measures and he will keep his promise. No one will care how he got it done. CNN and the rest of the elitist in the media are quickly finding out how insignificant they are. THAT's my point. Another point is the massive collateral damage in the Democrat Party this is causing. Beta, Cortez, Shultz, and the dozen or so other America hating wackos who managed to get elected. I've been watching this evolve for 15 years and I was right about it all along. The good news is that it's exposed.

The only way to stop illegal immigration was practiced by East Germany during the Cold War. Machine guns killed anyone who tried to cross their boundaries. If you aren't willing to go to that extreme you won't stop poor, desperate people from trying to have a better life and you shouldn't want to anyway. They come here, they work hard, they commit fewer crimes than do American citizens. America was built by immigrants. Oh, and pull that -------- argument about legal immigration. My daughter in law is a legal immigrant. It cost my son many thousands of dollars to make that happen. Literally, in America today, legal immigration is nearly impossible if you don't have someone with lots of money to make it possible for you.
