Trump went on a rant about his wall during a cabinet meeting and compared his border wall to the Vatican.
Trump said, “How bad it is, how dangerous it is and why we need a wall. They know that. When they say the wall is immoral, then you have to do something about the Vatican because the Vatican has the biggest wall of them all. The wall is immoral. Look at all the countries that have walls. They work 100%. It’s never going to change. Wall is wall. If we have drones up there, it’s wonderful. A lot of people thought it was 25 billion. That was for overall homeland security. That was for much more than the wall. The wall was a piece of that.”

Trump has the mentality of a five-year-old when it comes to his wall. Walls do not work with 100% effectiveness. It is silly and childish to believe that it will. There is a reason drug smugglers are some of the biggest supporters of Trump’s wall. They view the wall as a distraction that will allow them to smuggle even more drugs into the country.
Trump’s mind appears to be gone. With Democrats in control of the House, Robert Mueller is closing in, and the adults who served as the guardrails on his administration gone, Trump is running wild.
Donald Trump isn’t going to get his money for the wall. If he wants to keep a campaign promise, he can begin by getting the money from Mexico to pay for the wall.
Trump is now comparing the US southern border to any place in the world that has walls.
There is no wall, and it is causing Trump’s mental state to crumble.
