Trump Pushing for Border Wall to be Painted Black

President Trump has reportedly renewed his push to have the border wall painted black.

His reasoning is it will make it too hot for illegal immigrants to touch it.

According to The Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump still wants to paint the U.S.-Mexico border wall black to make the barrier look more menacing and hot to the touch during the summer months, the Washington Post reported Wednesday.

During a White House meeting in April about the border wall, Trump told senior aide Jared Kushner and others to move forward with plans to paint the wall black and to gather the cost estimates of such a project, according to several administration officials who spoke with the Washington Post.

Government contracting estimates obtained by the Post project that the endeavor would cost at least $500 million.

Trump has pushed for black paint before, but the proposal has been long opposed by border officials and military commanders who believe the black paint would be unnecessarily costly and require too much maintenance in the long-term, according to the Post.

The report also suggests that the black paint would make the wall more frightening in Trump’s view.

That is a great idea. Paint it black so they will not touch it and burn their hands.

Be really nice if once in a while the inflated egos and hatred of the Washington slime balls would just listen to POTUS, who has done more economical and effective building than all of the scum put together.

You might as well do something with the wall one of the largest symbols in the World of racial hatred and prejuice in this World. I would bet within 25 years if it lasts that long it will come down., at another huge price to the tax payers who did not approve the putting up of the wall. Just racist and haters, who actually think the wall will cahnge nything about illegal immigration, this is a country of smart persons and persons eager to make money so there wuill be many who will joiun with other in Mexico to get persons into this USA that want in here. As the old saying goes, ” Locks, vaults andfences are only to keep honest persons honest.”
Look at the prisons witha ll the intense guarding and all the4 escapes and all the banks which persons break into the vaults and rob, and Hadrians wall the gret wall of China, and the berlin wall stopped no one who wanted onm the othe r side of those walls

Do you leave your wallet around with a lot of cash showing? Is your car and house unlocked at all times? This has nothing to do with hatred. All the states that send their citizens here to be educated on the backs of US taxpayers have very tight borders with armed guards, and difficult requirements to come into the country. It’s only America that is expected to welcome everybody and anybody to come in and demand free! free! free! at the expense of American jobs and American taxpayers. Grow up. You sound like a Soros employee.

Are you saying we don’t need the wall, just let all the illegals, gangs, and drugs flow into the country and not try to stop it? That’s what all you Democrats want. That is crazy. The wall should have been built years ago. The more walls that are being built, the lower the number of illegals entering the USA has been. Also the gangs and drugs have been less. The walls work. The Berlin wall and the Great Wall of China worked also. Open borders do not work anymore. The drug cartels would love open borders. Wake up, quit listening to the idiots who would like to see this country go under so they could blame it on President Trump.

Oh, goody, Robert – another left-wing lib who doesn’t proofread his post and is ready to give our jobs, our taxpayers’ hard-earned money and our country to ILLEGAL INVADERS who have already broken our laws by entering ILLEGALLY and will probably VOTE ILLEGALLY!!!! We need that border wall to keep out drugs, to keep out ILLEGAL INVADERS who just want to live off the government dole and totally destroy the USA. Good immigrants who come here follow the laws and prove they shall by obeying the laws to enter and then happily become USA citizens. They assimilate into the American culture, learn to read and write English, love our country, sing our National Anthem and Pledge Allegiance to our flag, apply for jobs where they are paid the right way and not under the table while applying for government housing, food programs, medicaid, etc.etc.. Today, especially, we need the wall to prevent further spread of once stamped-out diseases which have come with ILLEGALS from all countries – TB, typhoid, polio, measles, mumps, diphtheria, whooping cough, Ebola, etc., and now the newest horrific disease foisted on the world by China – the Wuhan virus. It is not racist, xenophobic or nationalist to want immigrants to come LEGALLY. It is law abiding to come LEGALLY. No, Robert, locks, vaults, fences are meant to keep out evil thieves and predators, and s the saying goes, “Fences make good neighbors”. Tell me, Robert, do you have locks on your doors to your dwelling or to your vehicle? Bet you do, even if you live in your mother’s basement.

I’d personally prefer to see all edges sharpened, too. With appropriate signage that will inform anyone that climbing it could result in loss of limb.

We all know why, because we see a red door and we want to paint it black, that’s why.

Apparently ROBERT here is a socialist that wants to allow open borders… wonder how much of HIS money he is offering to spend to feed, educate, house and fund growing migrant families that are imported here to swell the burden on our society ?Oh wait a minute.. check his grammar here , looks like he is not a product of our education system.. bet he is an illeagle him self ! country barriers are not absolute.. but they damn sure do a lot to reduce the traffic.
most europoean countries are not starting to stop the flow of wandering immigrants that are causing problems for them…. better check your left leaning charity ideas at the door
