There is one simple reason why both Democrats and Republicans in Congress do not want the Wall built.
And it isn’t because of the cost.
Despite what the lying little creep Kamala Harris might claim.
Funding Trump’s unrealistic border wall would be a gross misuse of government funds.

The reason they do not want the Wall is because a Wall can’t be repealed.
As I’ve said before, members of Congress know they have a 95% chance of being reelected. And that means they are 95% certain they will still be in Congress long after President Trump leaves office.
So they are advancing so-called “border security” measures instead of the Wall.
Because any nebulous “border security” laws can be easily gotten rid of or ignored once Donald Trump leaves office.
But a Wall can’t be repealed.
Unlike the nebulous “border security” they might pass which are about as firm as wet concrete, the Wall is actually quite literally set in stone.
And the last thing both Democrats and Republicans in Congress want is for any Trump policy to outlast them.
We expect that from Democrats.
But we’re getting it from both parties.
See, this is the thing about the Republicans that grates my cheese.
When Obama was President, the Democrats were 100% behind him.
So whenever there were calls to repeal any part of his agenda, their go-to response was to shriek, “We can’t go back! We can’t undo the progress we’ve made!”
But Republicans in Congress are not 100% behind Donald Trump.
And I guarantee you, once the President is out of office, and Democrats advance a repeal of “border security” measures, the Republicans won’t be shrieking, “We can’t go back!!”
Trust me. The Republicans – just like the Democrats — want President Trump’s agenda to be easily erased once he’s left office.
For Congressional Republicans, the MAGA Movement is an aberration – some temporary insanity that has infected voters.
And they are certain that they can ride it out and outlast it.
They want this MAGA Movement to be temporary.
And a Wall is anything but temporary.
This is why I think building the Wall is the single most important thing Donald Trump can do while in office.
And it has to be the one thing that we do not let him waver on.
Constructing the Wall is central to restoring the sovereignty and national identity of the United States of America.
And it will have a lasting effect.
We must fight tooth and nail to see to it the Wall gets built.
But more importantly, we must do everything we can to ensure that people who support the MAGA movement are elected to Congress.
Because at the end of the day, this movement is much bigger than Donald Trump.
It has to be.
At the most, President Trump will only be in office for eight years.
We simply cannot pin our entire movement on him.
The current Congressional Republicans will wait him out knowing they will outlast him.
And, trust me, they can’t wait to undo everything they possibly can.
The only sure way to stop that is to replace them.
This is why it irritates the crap out of me that President Trump is campaigning for Luther Strange instead of Roy Moore.
If I’m right and he’s doing this in exchange for some concession from Mitch McConnell, it is a short-term solution that doesn’t take into account the long-term MAGA agenda.
If you live in Alabama, honey, vote for Roy Moore.
We have to be thinking in the long-term.
And just like the Wall, we need to be set in stone in our pursuit to Make America Great Again.
We can’t let up.
And we cannot settle for compromise.
As I keep saying, we are the Last Surprise.
It was Donald Trump’s Make America Great Again agenda that got him elected. And the cornerstone of this agenda is the Wall.
It is up to us to make it abundantly clear to Congress – and to this President – that when it comes to MAGA, we will outlast them all.
