Evidently the $5.7 billion requested for Trump’s wall is not the primary bone of contention right now.  Pentagon estimators are at work to figure out how to give Trump the funds he will be short on a Congressional compromise for the wall if he accepts half of what he's previously asked for...


Cheap Entertainment ... at your expense

 

One year ago I was on Mulberry Street in NYC’s Little Italy doing research for a book.
