OrangeVerse XXX: El Muro

The president visited the sanctuary state of California today, to look at mockups for his big, beautiful, pretty on the US side, ugly on the Mexican side wall. There were prototypes for him to stand in front of, and ogle, and point to, and stuff.

And it was close to where bad guys are, so that was a bonus in the manly man stuff - no generals required. It was almost poetic.OK, fine, it was poetic.

(It helps to keep in mind that  it was only a short time ago, back in February, that Trump and Enrique Pena Nieto had another testy phone call, and a planned trip by the Mexican president to the US was scrapped. And, of course, Jared went to Mexico to try and smooth things over.)

Criminals and Tariffs
Every day criminals
and tariffs try to
infiltrate our country.
You got a good
 glimpse of it before. 
We did it together, 
with the media
frankly.
I didn't know we
were going to be doing
that but you got, really
maybe a far better glimpse
than you're going to
get right now.

Billions and Billions
But the border wall
is truly our first line
of defense, and it's probably
if you think about it,
our first and last, other than
the great ICE agents and other people - 
moving people out.
It will save
thousands and thousands
of lives, save taxpayers
hundreds of billions of dollars
by reducing crime flow,
drug flow, welfare fraud,
and burdens on schools
and hospitals. The wall
will save hundreds of
billions  of dollars - 
many, many times
what it's going to cost.

Sanc-tu-ary
California sanctuary policies
put the entire nation
at risk. 
They're the best friend
of the criminal.
That's what exactly is happening. 
The criminals take refuge in 
these sanctuary cities
and it's very dangerous for our
police and enforcement folks.
The smugglers
the traffickers
the gang members
they're all taking
refuge and I
think a lot of people
in California understand that,
a lot of people from
other places understand it...

Enrique
I have a great
relationship with the
president of Mexico, a 
wonderful guy - Enrique.
Terrific guy. We're working - 
we're trying to work things out.
We'll see whether or not
it happens.
I don't know that 
it's going to happen.
He's a very
good negotiator.
He loves the
people of Mexico,
and he's working very hard.
We'll see what happens.

Collusion?
But we have to, 
obviously, have a 
couple of disagreements
before we get there.
You'll see over 
the next month
whether or not it
takes place 
in this administration,
meaning his administration.
They have an election 
coming up. 
I hear they have
some very good 
people running
and they have
some that maybe
aren't so good.
In any event
we'll handle it.

I Babbel
So I want to 
thank everybody for
being here. I want to thank
frankly, the media
for being here.
And we'll let the people
of our country know
that we need safety
we need security 
at the border, 
and we're getting it
like we've never 
had it before
but I want to
 make it
perfecto.
