Trump's son-in-law, who is also at the center of the administration's pandemic response, has been placed in charge of overseeing construction. He expressed frustration at this role during the meeting, telling others the wall was not his favorite project but that he is the only one who can get it done.

What a loser.


His pushing this mundane a detail suggests he's being pushed by somebody who wants a piece of the pie.

I dread the day we find out the depths of the graft and corruption under the idiot's "leadership".

I hope the next President tears down the entire wall just to humiliate Trump.
