      The EU has been far more successful in building walls than Trump has. Hundreds of kilometres of barbed wire fences patrolled by the military, compared to 0km along the US-Mexico border.

      If Trump can't even keep this promise, then what is he?

      Walls with barbed wire fencing?

      Anyway there's always gonna be opposition to key election promises & the opposition usually win by standing off said action until the next election. Way too easy for those in power to fail imo.

      I doubt it. If they ever get down to serious planning it will quickly become apparent it's a waste of money. If they actually start work it will become a farce and an embarrassment.

      A couple of weeks ago Trump issued an executive order calling for the immediate design and subsequent construction of a border wall, something he claimed was happening in February. Up until that point there had been no meaningful public update on the progress of designing the wall and Trump likes to make off-the-cuff remarks about potential changes like proposing the inclusion of solar panels, the government has yet to acquire the land necessary to build it, and no money has been formally allocated to its design/construction. In a recent budget proposal the GOP asked for $1.6billion, approximately 10% of the lowest estimate for the cost of the wall and 7.6% of the White House's internal estimate of $21billion. Unsurprisingly Mexico are holding their stance of "like f*ck are we going to pay for it", a stance they are happy to state publicly despite Trump's personal pleas to stop mentioning it so he doesn't look weak.

      Essentially Trump is trying to sound as busy as possible with it while making next to no progress, because he knows he has no way of either delivering the monumental structure he promised or shifting the expense of the efforts onto anyone other than the American tax payer. Expect non-committal announcements about shortlisted prototypes and preliminary budget allocations throughout his first term.
