Trump Meets With Dems On Border Wall, Admits That He’s Changing His Entire Story



The thing about President Donald Trump is that he cannot even agree with himself. It would be bad enough if he was just a bog standard racist Republican, but the issue is that he is slowly destroying the American economy and our whole society by constantly changing policies, contradicting himself, bringing shame and indignity upon the office of President of the United States and generally creating total chaos all the time.

The latest manifestation of this concerns the infamous Border Wall. Trump brought a government shutdown over this issue, the longest in American history, and repeatedly and staunchly said that he would never, ever back down on it – and then he backed down on it almost straight away. Where he had previously insisted that the wall had to be solid concrete, he now says he will be happy with a “steel barrier”. At this rate, by the end of the year, he will probably be content with some candy floss along the border. The Daily Mail reports:

President Donald Trump said Sunday he’ll offer Democrats a ‘steel barrier’ instead of concrete wall because ‘they don’t like concrete so we’ll give them steel.’ ‘We’ll build a steel barrier,’ he told reporters at the White House after he returned from a staff retreat at Camp David. ‘It’ll be less obtrusive and it’ll be stronger,’ he added. 

The president said he was making the offer to Democrats because ‘they don’t like concrete so we’ll give them steel. Steel is actually more expensive than concrete but it’ll look beautiful and it’s very strong. It’s actually stronger,’ he added. His offer comes as the partial government shutdown entered day 16 with no signs of ending.  

The White House is pushing the change in linguistics as a way of offering Democrats’ political cover so they aren’t funding a ‘wall.’ ‘We have an absolute crisis,’ Trump said of the border. And he tweeted Sunday night that Vice President Pence had a ‘productive’ meeting Sunday with staffers from Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer’s and Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s offices.

‘V.P. Mike Pence and group had a productive meeting with the Schumer/Pelosi representatives today. Many details of Border Security were discussed. We are now planning a Steel Barrier rather than concrete. It is both stronger & less obtrusive. Good solution, and made in the U.S.A.,’ he wrote.

Earlier Sunday he said he didn’t expect anything to come out of the meeting. ‘I don’t expect anything to happen at that meeting,’ he said. But, Trump added, ‘very serious talks’ would continue on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the coming week. The president said earlier on Sunday his border wall can be built of steel instead of concrete if that will help Democrats come to terms in negotiations to reopen the government.

‘The barrier or the wall can be steel instead of concrete if that helps people. It may be better,’ the president said at the White House before he left for Camp David for a staff retreat. He said he plans to call steel companies to ask them for a design for his wall. ‘I intend the call the heads of United States Steel and a couple of other of our great steel companies. I will have them come up with a template or design of a beautiful steel product, which we now may use and use that as our barrier,’ he said. 

In his remarks the president touted how great U.S. steel companies were doing under his administration. During the 2016 campaign Trump vowed to bring back steel jobs, a promise that helped him win manufacturing states like Pennsylvania. ‘This wall will pay for itself many times during the course of the year,’ he vowed. 

How can Trump voters still not see at this point that this man is never going to fulfill his promises? How do they still not understand that this is someone who does not care about them in the slightest, but is only interested in filling his own pockets?
