TRUMP HO­TELS, RIO GRANDE DIVI­SION

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Pres­i­dent Trump has vowed to build a “big, beau­ti­ful wall” be­tween the U.S. and Mex­ico to cur­tail il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion. His fans love this cam­paign prom­ise — his crit­ics tear it to pieces. Prac­ti­cal penny-coun­ters shud­der over the idea — diplo­mats shrug. Talk ra­dio host Rush Lim­baugh still be­lieves the bor­der wall is a pos­si­bil­ity, and now adds an in­ter­est­ing di­men­sion to it, based on Mr. Trump’s ca­pac­ity for sur­prise and in­no­va­tion.

“I think the wall is go­ing get built, some­how, some way,” Mr. Lim­baugh told his 10 mil­lion lis­ten­ers on Tues­day. Then he be­gan to riff on the idea.

“There will be a struc­ture that goes up, and it will have an ob­ser­va­tion deck, and it will have a sauna, and it will have hot tubs and stuff. It’ll be a tourist at­trac­tion. It might even have ex­clu­sive Trump ho­tel suites. You can stay at the wall, you can va­ca­tion at the wall. Wouldn’t that be cool if that kind of struc­ture went up? Those are the kinds of things Trump’s known for,” the host con­tin­ued, then paused to imag­ine how a com­bi­na­tion ad­ven­ture ho­tel and bor­der wall would af­fect the pres­i­dent’s many foes.

“That would re­ally frost them,” Mr. Lim­baugh noted.
