Well Gaf, would you pay for the wall?
"You can create a GoFundMe operation. Others suggest other ways, there is an existing effort called, I think, FundTheWall.com run by a sheriffs' association that’s raised some money, but nowhere near what is needed. And yet according to my mail, a lot of people are willing to chip in. One reader writes to me and says 'if the 63 million people who voted for Donald Trump each contributed $80, that would get you near the $5 billion mark. I think that's the kind of thing that needs to happen. It could be a people's wall. I don't really care about the mechanism. Do you do a tax checkoff of your retirement account?" Goodwin said. "But the important thing is the public could step in and effectively do this thing that the president wants."
Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have said they will not allocate $5 billion demanded by Trump to construct part of the wall he promised during his campaign. The president's request for funding is a departure from earlier claims that Mexico would pay for the wall. He needs Democrats' support because of the 60-vote threshold to advance the measure in the Senate...
The president has at various times changed how much he said the wall will cost. He recently said it would cost $15 billion, according to NBC News. Estimates say it will cost between $8 billion and $67 billion, according to Bloomberg, with some that variation depending on how much wall is constructed.
"The Democrat Party has a simple choice, they can either choose to fight for America's working class or to promote illegal immigration. You can't do both," he said. If government leaders cannot settle their differences before Friday, 420,000 people will be forced to work without pay, while 380,000 others will be sent home, according to NPR
