“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
If you’ve had your fill of football this Thanksgiving weekend, there’s good news—another great show is coming soon to a screen near you.
It isn’t as fast-paced as the gridiron, but it features a strong defense and a tough leader protecting his ground from hostile invaders.
Soon, you’ll be able to gather with the family around you TV, iPad, or laptop and watch President Donald Trump build The Wall right on the U.S. Border.
“There will be a wall cam, and it’ll launch early next year,” a White House official told reporters at “The Washington Post.”
In 2020, President Trump wants to put webcams on the border to Livestream progress of his signature campaign promise: to seal the border and keep out illegal drugs, gangs, and human traffickers.
The president wants to triple the rate of construction in 2020, and he wants to let every American watch while he wins.
The president’s son-in-law, Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner, is heading up the move to let voters watch Trump keep his promises in real-time.
Kushner has been coming back to the idea at almost every meeting on The Wall since July—and it has D.C. insiders hopping mad.
A handful of powerful bureaucrats burrowed into the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection want absolutely no part of it—because it will show how they’re dragging their feet on building a barrier they oppose.
They say they don’t have any dog in that fight—that their contractors don’t want competitors stealing their techniques, or Mexican officials getting overheated if they set foot on the other side of the border while building the structure.
But the real story is they just don’t want anyone watching the way they’re slow-walking the most important issue of the Trump presidency.
The “big, beautiful wall” President Trump wants to build on the border will actually be two walls. They’ll be between 18 and 30 feet tall each—with long strips of strong steel sunk into concrete—and border agents patrolling roads that run in between them.
There’s one problem: The Swamp hates The Wall.
President Trump saw that the career D.C. “leaders” have tried to gum things up on every policy he’s put forward—deportations, an America First foreign policy, you name it…and The Wall is no different.
Since 2017, The Swamp has built only four miles of the 166 miles of border wall in the State of Texas.
They haven’t even bought the land to build The Wall on.
So, Trump tapped his son-in-law, Kushner, to lead up the meetings and knockdown government excuses, stalling, and lack of action.
Trump is sick of watching nothing happen and wants construction on The Wall put into warp drive.
The powers that be have been building about two to three miles of border wall every week…for a total of 81 miles.
That’s not good enough, Trump says.
He wants them to multiply that by three.
The greatest government in the world should be able to build six miles of The Wall every single week, he says—and he’s not taking no for an answer.
So, he put Kushner on the case—and Kushner’s holding meetings every two weeks to get things done.
Trump has 155 miles of fences going up on the border and he’s prepping another 273 miles… but they’re still getting flack from people who want The Wall to get stuck in the mud of D.C.’s Swamp until their fellow insiders can impeach Trump or have him voted out of office.
So, Kushner thought a camera — that the American people could watch for themselves — would be perfect. Everyone could see what’s happening (and what’s not happening) along the Rio Grande.
“Kushner is so aggressive because the president has been asking him about it all the time,” a ticked off White House official said.
Imagine that—a president keeping his promises! The webcam is all about holding Washington accountable for how they spend your tax dollars.
So, starting next year, get ready to pop some popcorn, turn on the laptop, and watch President Trump keep his word one brick at a time.
