Trump failed to build a wall. Now it looks like he is failing to build a tent city also. lol



US military rejected Trump request to build migrant detention facilities - report

The US military reportedly turned down a White House request to build migrant detention centres as thousands walk towards to the Mexican border.

The Pentagon's apparent rejection, disclosed to Reuters by unnamed officials, illustrates the tension in the Trump administration over using military resources to fortify the border against illegal immigration.

In a rally ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections, President Donald Trump told supporters to "look at what is marching up - that's an invasion".

Fortify desert shitholes 6,000mi away. No problem, throw in a $5mil natural gas station.

Fortify your own border? REEEE WASTE OF MONEY REFUSE LAWFUL ORDERS

Maybe Trump will say that Pentagon is the enemy of the people now.

Building refugee tents = "fortifying border" to forwyn.

"Disappearing pallets of cash" = "building democracy". Words have very fluid meanings where the DoD is concerned.

We have a bunch of military bases that are not being used but for some reason are still maintained. Might as well put them to use.

If the wall had been already built then we would not need to discuss this.

Probably some of Obama's Generals that are pushing back.



Fido, there are a lot of things that you don't know too I bet.

I already posited that theory in an earlier thread.

Obama is continuing to undermine the US using agents he planted over the course of his illegal 2 terms in office.

This is what happens when you let people born outside the US be president.

Dodged one hell of a bullet with lying Ted

smart dude your links seem to be all relying on a Reuters article for their info on the tent cities not being built by the military. While the articles are recent they are talking about a request made back in April or May. That request would have come out of the military budget and at that time the plan was to build the tent cities on no longer used military bases.
From what I have seen since the Pentagon said no to providing the tent cities President Trump has not said the military will build then instead saying the government would build them.

So while true the story is old news.

Pillz, I hope that you will be half as sharp as I am when you reach 80.



BTW, I will reach that big 80 on the 26th.

What are you going to buy me?

A coffin and grave plot.

i.e. paper towels, a shovel, and a long hike in a remote forest.
