President Donald Trump’s wall on the U.S.-Mexico border is going forward as expected.
Companies are currently working on government-financed bids to get the Wall contract, according to The Associated Press:
“One potential bidder on President Donald Trump’s border wall with Mexico wanted to know if authorities would rush to help if workers came under “hostile attack.” Another asked if employees can carry firearms in states with strict gun control laws and if the government would indemnify them for using deadly force.
With bids due Tuesday on the first design contracts, interested companies are preparing for the worst if they get the potentially lucrative job.
A U.S. official with knowledge of the plans who spoke on condition of anonymity because the details haven’t been made public said four to 10 bidders are expected to be chosen to build prototypes.
They will be constructed on a roughly quarter-mile (400-meter) strip of federally owned land in San Diego within 120 feet (37 meters) of the border, though a final decision has not been made on the precise spot, the official said. The government anticipates spending $200,000 to $500,000 on each prototype.”
Spending for the Wall is subject to Congress, but even if talks break down with Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the Democrats, the Trump administration can still do business with private contractors to construct it. The president has already given the executive order for the border wall, meaning that legally it must go forth. McConnell and Ryan might try to play hardball with the purse strings.
POLL: 72% of Republicans Want Party Leaders Affiliated With Donald Trump’s Policies, Even if Biden Wins
Republicans strongly support Trump’s policies.
New post-election polling reveals that Republican voters want party leaders affiliated with Donald Trump’s “America First” policy vision, even in the event that Joe Biden is ultimately inaugurated as President in January.
The final outcome of the presidential election is still pending litigation in several swing states.
Voter Omnibus’s survey questioned 1,001 national voters on the matter last week, including 465 Republican-aligned voters.
An outright plurality of Republican and Republican-leaning voters want the party to continue with Donald Trump himself as the leader of the party, with 39% of voters expressing such a view.
33% of Republican-aligned voters want the party to continue with new leaders who are more “disciplined.” Combined, these constituencies form a strong majority of 72% in support of the Trump agenda.
A paltry constituency of Republicans desire to see the party return to the Bush/Romney approach of neoconservative globalism, signaling poor prospects for liberal conservatives to regain control of the Republican party.
Republicans are far more concerned that weak Republicans won’t fight against Democrats or abandon Trump’s “America First” policy approach than they are that they’ll advance Trump’s agenda.
Trump is the most popular potential 2024 candidate in the event he leaves office in January.
It’s hard to imagine any politician beating a former President, especially a figure with the political legacy of Donald Trump, in a Republican primary. The fundamentals for a 2024 Trump campaign are strong if he leaves office in January, and it appears that the desire for Republican leaders who share the President’s “America First” vision is overwhelming.
