Is there any information on which company is supposed to build the border wall? Have there been bids? If so, is there any ties to trump? I know it’s a vanity project, but I want to know who is going to benefit financially from it and why he’s pushing so hard for it.

  2. From what I understand, and this may be debunkable since its me piecing together information, but I think be put tariffs on Chinese steel & other materials in order to raise prices so that he could get Russian steel from Oleg Deripaska who is notoriously close to Putin.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2018/12/19/us/politics/sanctions-oleg-deripaska-russia-trump.amp.html

    Frankly if there’s a shell entity that ties back to Deripaska it would mean Russia (Putin & Deripaska) are building a wall to literally divide the US, physically seperate us from our allies in Mexico and simultaneously financially benefit from government money. Needless to say if it comes to pass Trump will receive some sort of laundered compensation.

  3. 4 companies made samplesnat 300k to 500k each

    The four that won the bids to make samples.

    Caddell Construction Co., based in Montgomery, Alabama, has received over $4 billion in government contracts since 2007, according to USAspending.gov. It received government contracts to build U.S. embassies in Beijing and Kabul, Afghanistan, and is listed among the top 100 government contractors last year.

    W.G. Yates Construction of Philadelphia, Mississippi, the largestconstruction company in the state, is a 53-year-old firm with experience that includes building a retaining wall at a convention center in Shreveport, Louisiana. Yates has received over $560 million in federal contracts since 2007.

    Texas Sterling Construction Co., based in Houston, is a subsidiary of the publicly traded Sterling Construction Co. Texas Sterling is a “heavy civil, highway and municipal construction company” that has received over $6 million in federal contracts since 2008.

    Fisher Sand and Gravel is a 65-year-old family business that was founded in North Dakota and has expanded to Arizona. It’s one of the country’s largest sand and gravel producers, with extensive road-building experience. It has run into legal issues in the past that have affected its bids for government work.

  4. Trump recently said he negotiated with a contractor on wall construction, which was a lie. A POTUS wouldn’t be involved in that, and it’s another example of what a clueless idiot he is.

  5. There were the actual wall “samples” but I don’t think any company was awarded a contract. The “wall” keeps changing… But if they ever build it, you bet it will line the pockets of some trump scum.

  6. This is exactly how we can get ahead of what is going on now. The Democrats could easily demand oversight and change the narrative of what’s really going on with this situation.

  7. Donald Trump is never getting his wall and *that’s what he wants*. He’s lazy. He doesn’t want the wall. He knows that it’ll cost an ungodly amount of money and that it won’t work and, while that’s pretty par for the course for Trump ventures, this is a whole new class of thing we’re talking about here. If this wall is to be built, it’ll be the single largest and most expensive infrastructure project the U.S. will have ever undertaken. It’s projected to cost between 15 and 25 **billion** dollars. Bear in mind that the 15 billion is the number Trump gave and the 25 billion number comes from an [actual statistician](https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/trumps-border-wall-how-much-it-will-actually-cost-according-to-a-statistician) working for *Fox News*. Just to give you an idea of how much money that is, because those are pretty abstract numbers to most people, the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken was the Big Dig, a complete overhaul of almost all of the highway system in Boston, which was a massive undertaking, but still smaller in scale than what Trump is proposing. It cost 14 billion dollars. The wall will cost $25 billion just to be built, and it’ll probably end up costing an additional billion dollars every year to maintain it. It’s an insane expenditure that even other Republicans don’t want.
