Donald Trump has been down at the Mexican border talking about the need for a wall between The U.S. and Mexico.
What a brilliant idea. Look what the Great Wall has done for China! It's beautiful, unique, and you can even see it from outer space. Why doesn't Trump ante up some of his billions and get naming rights? That would give him dozens, maybe hundreds of Trump Towers.
China's wall is 5500 miles long and took 200 years to build, but our border with Mexico isn't mountainous and it's less than half that length, so we should get a project like that done much faster, especially with the minimum wage going up.
The GOP would support the project because Trump's Wall would keep out all those rapists and murderers and bad people he's been warning us Mexico keeps sending. Democrats would love the Wall because it would grow the economy and get everyone still unemployed back to work.
And think of all the tourist dollars the US would rake in while it was being built, and then afterwards.
It's really a question of National Pride. Why should China be the only country with a gigantic wall to brag about? The Great Wall of Trump would look awesome on tee-shirts, mugs, mouse pads, and every kind of swag. What's not to like?
