Trumpapalooza
In regards to the wall, I can say that ladders and tunnels are cheaper and will thwart the intended purpose to a degree...although the wall---if it ever gets built----will slow border crossings.

In regards to NAFTA, Trump now appears willing to work with it.

One thing about Trump----he speaks a lot of doubletalk B.S. on purpose. People are slowing figuring out that most of what he says is a diversion from what he actually intends to do. The remaining question in my mind is how much he will actually get done in the next four years and whether it will improve the American way of life or make it harder.....I still believe trump is out of touch with the working class.

He definitely has an odd agenda. Trump Invites Controversial Philippines Leader To White House

He reaches out to the authoritarian oddballs of the world.

Re: Trumpapalooza
But is President Trump the same thing as candidate Trump?
To quote a Clint Eastwood line, Trump is a legend in his own mind. He likely already thinks his place in History is more prominent than it so far actually is.

I thoroughly understand depression. It isn't fun. My counselor tells me that it is human nature to externalize one's own inner stress with the stress of the world in general.
