Five questions about Trump’s border wall – BBC News


he’s been talking about it
since the campaign trail
do not worry we
are going to build the wall okay
don’t even think of it
well we have been
thinking about it and we have some
questions
five to be exact
first what would Trump’s wall actually
look like?
on the campaign trail in 2015
Trump was clear that his wall was of the
cement block variety
I’ll tell you what
it’s gonna be made of it’s gonna be made of
hardened concrete impenetrable physical
tall, powerful.
but his view started to
shift in the last year the problem is
you have to have see-through you have to
know what’s on the other side of the
wall
more recently Trump has said that
his wall will look more like
artistically designed steel slats you
can see through.
if I build a steel wall
rather than a concrete wall it will
actually be stronger than a concrete
steel is stronger than concrete
question number two how much of a wall already
exists?
one-third of the us-mexico border
already has some sort of barrier that is
about 600 miles are already covered with
a fence the border is 1,900 miles long
the trump’s proposed wall would be 1,000
miles natural obstacles will take care
of the rest
number three how much will it cost?
in
2017 Trump said it would cost ten
billion dollars or less
that same year elite homeland security
document reported it would cost twenty
one point six billion other estimates
are much much higher today Trump is
asking Congress for the 5.6 billion is
such a small number which brings us to
question number four
who is going to pay for this?
and Mexico will pay for the wall
we are
not paying that is stupid wall build it if you want with the US taxpayers money
he’s now said he can get the money from
other government agencies the
president’s asked every one of his
cabinet secretaries to look for funding
that can be used Democrats have pushed
back saying this won’t happen without
congressional approval
speaking of Democrats what do they want
on the border?
well they say they’d spend some money on
border security but according to Nancy
Pelosi they’re not doing a wall that
does a body have any doubt that we’re
not doing a wall

  1. Well, it looks quite hypocritical and ridicule to see the British state owned BBC criticizing the US President Donald Trump about his great US – Mexico border wall plan when at the same time the UK is organizing Brexit and leaving the EU significantly because multicultural and culturally exotic immigration and the free movement of people principle inside the EU during the past years and decades. Besides the Atlantic Ocean has always been a natural sea defence and border "wall" around the UK. Greetings from Northern Europe, from partly arctic Finland.

  2. Build a wall around the bbc headquaters and use the tv licence fee to pay for it!

    "Oi, have you got a loicence for that cement?!"

  3. We need the wall, and it will help, but it won't be a cure all for the problem. We need to start prosecuting the Americans that are giving these illegals jobs. Go to any home construction site across the US and you'll see illegals laying bricks, decking houses, pouring concrete, etc. etc. Federal law says it's 5 years in prison if caught employing illegals, but the law is not being enforced. Start arresting the employers, and the other 99.9% will stop hiring illegals for fear of prison. Once the illegals no longer have jobs, most will self deport and others will stop coming here. It's cash money jobs that's causing them to break into our country and it's no different than a criminal breaking into a bank vault. If he knows there's no money in the vault, he's not going to try to enter that vault.

  4. A  "  Wall "      Is nothing more than the orange Buffoon's attempt to distract us from his impending removal and incarceration.

  5. I feel very offended my licence fee is being used to meddle in another nations political system. Particularly as it would be hard to criticize Putin for trying to fix the EU referendum in favor of those who voted to Remain, when our own government broadcaster is engaged in similar antics overseas.

  6. Don't like Trump but there is nothing wrong with a border wall. Should have been built years ago to be honest. This should be a common sense bipartisan issue.

  7. He’s now saying that Mexico will be paying for it, through the trade tariffs. So why the shutdown? You’ve either got funding or you haven’t?!!!

  8. FACT: Trump isn’t spending any of the border security budget that he has ($1.3b). He wants pandemonium so he’s wall gathers support.

  9. FACT: immigration has gone down every year for over a decade and not one terror suspect has ever got into America via the southern border.

  10. BBC is propaganda… You tube is deleting down likes https://youtu.be/ZyCJrilXJEs also propaganda.. Never believe the Media

  11. this article said keystone pipeline the steel for pipeline was promised
    to be made here but ended up being made in canada Evraz, a company
    31-percent owned by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, who is a close
    ally of Putin and a Trump family friend.. where is the STEEL FOR THE
    WALL coming from ?
    https://www.snopes.com/news/2017/03/08/keystone-russian-steel/

  12. Yellow jackets are marching in London against the brexit betrayal by the traitor class politicians and fake news journalists.https://youtu.be/thelNR5EsXU

  13. Mind your own business, BBC, b/c your culture & country is done! Our duly elected Great POTUS 45 will build OUR wall to keep us safe which your country should have done a generation ago.

  14. BBC BIAS is what you get when you agree to pay the BBC TV LICENSE. Don’t encourage government funded bias its propaganda. Neutral political views isn’t too much to demand is it?

  15. BBC? Hey aren't you guys having all kinds of problems with illegals crossing the channel? I'm sure I read it, think it was BBC. Said the British government was sending more navel forces to stop it. SO, why does our border problem concern you?

  16. This is so disgustingly tainted with biased contempt and ridicule I will save it as prime example why the BBC must be moved to the private sector.

  17. What would be the negative of building a wall? Doesn’t every country have a boarder? Apart from cost, why is this a bad idea? Saw many boarder personnel saying it would help.. I wouldn’t want undocumented people freely walking into Australia….

  18. Bbc is englands propaganda machine,cbc is canada's propaganda machine,in fact the canadian liberal goverment only now funds liberal points of view.In fact any views that are considered anti communist or anti socialist can be charged under recent liberal bills.Canada being a free country is now an illution.

  19. To the Marxist, Government-run media, BBC:
    1. who cares what it's made out of, as long as it's a barrier.
    2. Build as much wall as necessary.
    3. Who cares how much it would cost, we spend a hundred and fifty billion yearly on illegals.
    4. Mexico will pay for the wall, indirectly through new trade deal, this is obvious to those who understand how finances work. And even if we pay for it, it's still a bargain compared to the cost of illegas.
    5. Democrats don't care about a wall, they don't care about sovereignty, and they don't care about Americans.

  20. FACTS scaremongering 🌚 WAR
    until there’s no longer
    First class and second class citizens of any nation
    Until the color of a man's skin
    Is of no more significance than the color of his eyes

  21. A wall is utterly useless. Many fly in, climb over the current fence or burrow under it or just break through the existing fence.Some even come across the border from Canada or along the coast by boat. The wall would have to be 65,000 foot tall, 100 foot deep into the ground and be constructed around the entire USA. Then what do you do about the submarines drug smugglers use to bring drugs into the great USA See https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=submarine+drugs+to+usa . By the way, drones are great for flying drugs over the wall! Trump is a chump of the first degree!

    Meanwhile in 'great USA' you have more in jail than the rest of the world (the corporate private companies provide funds for US elections but Americans foot the bill by extending the national debt) (see https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=How+many+Americans+in+jail ) and you go round shooting each other all the time…see the latest report from Chicago…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hJc7yHNUwI Doctors in USA make loads of money prescribing Opioids turning Americans into 'legal' drug addicts (after all buying illegal drugs on the street does not make doctors any money) Doctors will soon be importing and peddling more drugs than come over the Mexican border…see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNj89ohoYQ0 Veterans returning from active duty end up homeless on the street in USA and every ploy is used to refuse health care and compensation for illness, injury and PSD See… https://www.youtube.com/resultssearch_query=USA+Veteran+disability+claims+refused+delayed USA tanks and drivers are not too good…see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMzD3AxZZO4 Trouble recruiting for US forces….no problem see… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdCsx9UYMfI & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAdLWF1ZqlI A trillion for the military but none for AMERICA FIRST! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoqJyUcHCKY USA invade countries they do not approve of and overthrow their governments! See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIBlrwqN3VM&t=10s The new tax reform bill will help the rich not the poor…. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1G76YDSmsU & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpC4X5-cXpo By the way, has great USA done any experiments on you yet? See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVT1Mh_cW4I Now we hear Trump is selling of parts of the US National Parks to his rich friends! See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KiCwwuwIuI Just look at what happened to Detroit! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEp9xb_0DCQ Now New England has a problem with a possible major volcanic eruption see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMMonbHPTVE No homeless in USA…give me a break https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04Z3Rd0rD_I If you want to know what USA does to soldiers who return from conflict with illnesses see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6TE0fLWOto&list=PLhuc1nkRqkV0ya_yprm_LAJVQDYGKlejk (& parts 2,3 & 4) & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PyfiP3h2Qw it is disgusting! The Hanford nuclear facility could be the next Chernobyl or worse! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92bGKftNQnU

    Just look at USA….allowing everyone to buy guns + highest rate of gun deaths of every first world country. 33,000 gun deaths in USA each year says CDC See https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/deaths.htm Seems to me there are already more 'terrorists' in USA than anywhere else! UN troops in Chicago…civil war next? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unhgQwJ1HK4 and health…80% suffer from worms … see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WcIJq_4JrA and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySqnUByBFM0 and
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGLfRal760M Great country USA!

  22. I’m English and l would like to pay my licence fee to D Trump to help build his wall. Rather than the BBC who give themselves pay rises with it.

  23. Fake News by BBC. Tell us again how safe Londonstan is with the immigration, no guns and political correctness. You could be reporting the crime wave there…

  24. "Farther south, there may be no visible, no obvious wall. But there remain armed guards and checkpoints all the same–still a restriction on the right to travel, still an instrument to impose upon ordinary men and women the will of a totalitarian state."
    – Ronald Regan in Berlin June 1987

  25. Put all the Dems in sleeping bags on the border. See how long it takes before they ask for a barrier from Mexico so they can get some sleep without worrying about the gangs, being raped or robbed by illegals with convictions.

  26. This won’t stop immigration their are other ways to get into the us. Plus he should pay for it himself instead of trying to make taxpayers pay for it.

  27. BBC stands BAKED BULL CRAP… u guys should also build a wall around ur shores seeing that so many illegal aliens are now crossing the channel by boat

  28. Remember when trump supporters were CONVINCED that Mexico was gonna pay for all that shit ?😂🤣 Aww those were the days, for those of you who still wanna throw money in the garbage, enjoy paying with your own money😁😉

  29. seems very factual to me. Yes…. about 600 miles of border has a wall… yes dump said mexico would pay…. mexico said no way… rump hissy fit closed the nation… now liar and chief says not concrete but steel…. he is destroying our nation from the inside and is a clear and present danger to the USA.

  30. When I got confused between two religions indeed I do ,I donot now what to believe after all these years, I always have those thought since I was young. Some thing not right . Any one said iam crazy. We go together to the gentice clinc at lease I will make it clear for them any way it is already happened

  31. People will always find a way to get in . Just how drugs are smuggled in prisons . Your white utopia will soon be gone and I will laugh my ass off .

  32. There were almost 400k apprehensions at the southern border in 2018.
    Walls at Yuma Sector decreased apprehensions by 90%. Walls have worked around the world for tens of thousands of years. Walls work.

  33. Hey, all of you want to be illegals!!!  I have good news for you!!!  But first of all you have two choices below!!!  Which one will you do!!!
      1. You must get out there and tell everbody and Donald won't want to build the wall anymore!!!  Then he will get the government back to work!!!  Promise.
    2.  Don't tell anybody and just use the WALL (so you and everybody else can come and go when ever you like!!! 
    Hey thats great let him build it!!!  But by him building the wall out of strong steel it make its to where you can claimb Donalds strong steel fence any where you want to in a flash!!!  In less than five seconds!!!  YES!!!  Up and over in five seconds!!! Well it all depends who's going over!!!
    And know body will know how you did it and so fast!!!  Not only that when you are going back over to visit your friends and relatives its all ready for you, just up and over!!!  And from a short distance nobody can see the difference!!!
    Let me tell you Donalds fence just turned into a great idea for all of you wantabe illegals!!!
    So here it is!!!  You get on e-bay and order the real strong N52 neodymium magnets!!!  MUST GET THE N52 BECAUSE THEY ARE THE STRONGEST!!!
    Then practice this!!! Maybe three or for guy???  practice running up the other guys back.  The first guy runs up to the strong steel wall!!  Grabs on to the wall!!! Then the next guy climbs up this back and onto his shoulders Then the next guy crawls up two backs and then onto the top!!!  As these guys are doing this they place the magnets at the correct foot hold distances on both sides!!!  It looks like you can see through the wall so you should be able place the magnets for foot holds on both sides at the same time!!!
    Larry
    Also you will have to see what size magnets you will need.  You might want to wrap a quarter inch strip of flat steel around the magnet so you will have a large foot hole STEP!!!  Practice makes perfect!!!
    One more thing!!!!  Maybe, lets say you  place these magnetic paths at ten different places!!!  Then send one person at each path at lets one hour intervals!!!  And stager all ten of the Magnectic path so only one person would be up and over at one time!!! PRACTICE!!!

  34. I think it’s funny how Bush put back billions of dollars for a wall, and then Obama came in and that money disappeared.

  35. I have but onevquestion only regarding thecwall, namely;
    How will the wall affect the lives of the wildlife that roams freely?

  36. What are so many people want to have Trumpy build a wall between our Mexican neighbors and not our neighbors to the north? Why is that?

  37. Alright, so I’m going to get a lot of hate on this. But I don’t really care, and I feel like this needs to be said. I do believe we need the wall. What people are not understanding is this is NOT stopping people from crossing the border, they just have to do it LEGALLY. People are crossing the border bringing guns and drugs that are harming Americans, because it’s just so easy to walk over to America. Are people still going to get in even with the wall? Yeah, sure they are. But the numbers will cut down quite a lot. I’m a Christian, and I believe all people are made equal and deserve to be treated equally. But when people are coming over and KILLING, that’s not okay. By coming over legally, these people are charted I our computer systems with their fingerprints, names, records, and everything we need, so if they did hurt someone they could be put behind bars. I know I’m going to get a lot of hate one this, but it needed to be said.

  38. just want to comment on the remarks about the waste of money on the wall that is built along new mexico border in a waste land, as the wall gets built in various locations those areas that do not have a wall will become more and more used by illegal immigrants, it is not going to matter whether it is desolate or not, bottom line is eventually the border security wall needs to stretch the entire length of the border or the crossings are just going to shuffle around, and in reality the more desolate the unsecured border location is the more likely to get away with it, as for this particular stretch showing no signs of being used is only because there are so many other places to cross. just a thought

  39. In 1961, the East German government built a  concrete wall between East Berlin and West
    Berlin, to prevent some of its citizens from fleeing to West Berlin, it as been
    viewed by history as one of the worst blunders ever devised by a modern
    civilized people, it only lasted until 1989, before everyone took notice of it
    as an haltingly international  effort.
    Then along came this American President, thinking the government of Mexico would
    seriously consider imprisoning its people, behind a wall, preventing them from
    fleeing to the United States, and committing yet another international blunder,
    especially after the lesson that was learned after that German affair in 1961…go
    figure…

  40. I Love the fact that dmpfs "big beautiful" wall is being cut through with $30. Wal~mart saws. Great plan dmfp! All that paranoia of woman & children! Damn you fmfp lemmings will believe anything that lying pig says!

  41. Republicans want to save the United States and the Democrats want to ruin it. Your choice people!! It really is as simple as that.

  42. For those, if any of you, who have not yet figured it out, that this company is owned and controlled by the Democrats, that they push out massive propaganda and manipulation, then you should know now, I'm pretty sure most Americans are not that ignorant to believe this nonsense. Their job is to destroy President Donald Trump's reputation. Today's propaganda has the ability to make a good man look like a monster and a monster look like a good man. They are biased propaganda puppets.

  43. Mr Trumpy, you have nothing to worry about. Your constituency are as stupid as ever, just read your followers sentences.

  44. Hows crazy nancys wall around her house? Along with obummers and mikes wall around there house? 432K pounds of drugs ceased in 2018 at the border. So continue to Build that wall!

  45. I like how building a wall to keep the drug dealers and illegal immigrants out is such a big deal, but nobody talks about other countries that are much more harsh with border security

  46. BBC YOU SHOULD LOOK AT YOURSELF. WHY WOULD BBC LEAVE E.U ,SO BBC LIBERALS WE R COMING FOR YOU ON YOUR WALL WITH E.U
