John Oliver asks, 'Donald Drumpf wants to build a wall on the U.S-Mexico border. Is his plan feasible?' Well, no, it is not.
Donald Trump runs a campaign of words, not of policy. He speaks in general terms and flip flops on several issues. His only real sticking point, which has remained solid since the first moment of his presidential bid, is the wall between the United States and Mexico. Trump wants to build this structure — to keep out the rapists and drug dealers — that stands at least thirty-five feet tall, and he promises that it will be build only from the strongest materials: “Hardened concrete, steel, and rebar.” Trump thinks the project will maybe cost around $8 billion, which is no big deal, and he also believes Mexico will be thrilled to pay for everything.
Well, John Oliver has proven with with one particularly blistering missive that he’s willing to indulge Trump’s claims with the end goal of obliteration. He does this once again on Last Week Tonight, and his new target is the “stupid f*cking wall.” Oliver tosses a wrecking ball in numerous ways, starting with Trump having no idea how much the project will truly cost.
