Is Trump Really Getting His Wall Now?
GMF's Jan Techau explained BILD: “Trump stopped talking about ‘the Wall’ some time ago — instead he now talks about pieces of wall at the most important parts of the border. Chances that some form of border wall is coming have risen, but are still not very high.”
“Anything is possible: Donors turning their backs on the Republicans; Fox-News, Trump’s mouthpiece turning their back on the President; dropping approval ratings for Trump and his party; Republican-led states openly opposing President Trump. The domestic political movement against Trump, which includes some Conservatives, has just started picking up speed,” analyzes Techau.
Techau is less convinced: "The Republican support for Trump on this issue has declined noticeably, both in Congress and nationwide. Trump goes too far for many conservatives.”
Techau sees it far more critically: “You can never be completely sure in court, but Trump’s state of emergency does look very constructed and politically manipulated. American constitutional justice is serious business, and even Conservative judges will look more than twice before allowing the President to take such a drastic measure.
Techau emphasizes: "He turned this issue into an indicator of his own assertiveness, because he believes he can impress his voters with harshness and stubbornness. His aim is to prove that he can take on the whole ‘system’ and win.”
