Can Trump Get His Wall Without the Democrats?
Trump's State of the Union address about his signature project: "I'll get it built."
The fact that Trump will actually get the wall built is considered "quite unlikely" by United States expert and political scientist Jan Techau, although not impossible. Techau told BILD: "The Democrats are determined not to grant him this triumph, and many Republicans also consider the project nonsensical. But in Washington, no individual decision is ever made in a vacuum, everything is connected with everything. Maybe there's a deal where Trump gets part of the wall and the Democrats get something else in return. The issue has long since become a symbolic struggle that no side must lose. So it's all just a matter of nerves, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is Trump's iron-hard opponent."
