Trump Democrat that I am: Give Trump his stupid, ineffectual Wall! But require that, for approval of his five billion dollar program, the bill to protect the Mueller investigation be passed, and that a DACA protection bill be passed. Aren’t those two bills worth more than five billion dollars, which will probably never be spent? Use Trump’s ego as a sop to get something done, and then we Democrats can take credit for it.
If Trump vetoes the legislation, then so be it, and let him explain it to Mueller and to the people in 2020, if he lasts that long. If he vetoes it, there is a reasonable chance that his veto could be overridden.
It is more important to get some meaningful legislation passed than to narrow mindedly oppose this boondoggle of a medieval Wall that is supposed to solve the immigration problem. If his Wall is funded, it will not be fully built before Trump runs for re-election in 2020, if he lasts that long. So, the new President could redirect those funds to something that could be helpful to our country.
The Wall is unimportant, if we can accomplish something much more meaningful. Let Ozymandias have his edifice.
