      Trump doesn’t need $20 billion to build the Wall. He will get that and more out of Mexico to pay back the amount ultimately they will compromise on (I think Trump gets the $ from the guest worker program in “phase 2”).

      I think Trump will be happy to get half of that and still build and substantial Wall on the border. The biggest part of the deal must tie Wall completion to citizenship or any compromise on chain migration. Trump will end visa lottery, get $ for Wall and end the type of chain migration that has been ridiculous over this long while.

        He ALREADY made Mexico pay for it. In the 12 months prior to Trump’s election, the exchange rate averaged 18.1 Mexican pesos to the dollar. In the 14 months since the election (not including January, as it’s not yet over), the average has been 19.16 pesos to the dollar.

        We imported $372.8 billion worth of products from Mexico in 2016. That equates to $31.067 billion per month. Over the 14 months following the election, the stronger dollar has averaged a cost reduction for imports of 5.85% on a monthly basis, and, over 14 months, that translates into a savings (for American consumers) of $24.04 billion.

        Trump should be shouting this from the rooftops. He hasn’t even built the wall, yet, but he’s already made Mexico pay for it.

      In a campaign, candidates simplify things to get the main idea across. The aim is still to have an impermeable barrier. However, it’s a “wall system” which deals with all the complexities of the terrain & needs of the people on the border. The plan was constructed by the experts who guard the border. They know the conditions on the ground, and what is needed.

      I think he meant that the President evolves where it is needed. When he asks for opinions from Kelly and others, he weighs them in the balance and makes his own choice. But the evolving is in the listening and yes, sometimes in the changing of his own mind. Not a bad thing sometimes. Trump is wise and listens.

      Get REAL people ! The job of President is harder than campaigning for it. A hundredfold more information comes to him than he had as a candidate !!

      He will hold to his core beliefs–America First. But with more available information, he may see different ways to get the result he wants. He NEVER said the wall would be 2000 miles, for example. (But detractors try to claim he is backtracking )

      When one gets more information the thinking will evolve. Why should that cause “red flags”? I trust this man. Don’t you?

      I’ve met both general Kelly and general Mattis when I was in the marines the biggest take away from those encounters were that even though I was a lowly lance corporal they each took the time to listen to what I had to say about the new tech we were using and said they would use the input, seems to me that’s what great leaders do will take and use information from every source to help with decision making. So if they would take the time to listen to what I had to say id expect the same from potus another great leader to listen to either one to evolve his thinking may not change the out come but a more informed decision … even the same decision can be considered evolved if it’s based on more information

        Walls work. Trump knows this. If Israel needs a wall there is no substitute. Sure, support people and technology are needed.

        And Kelly knows this full well too.

        So watch the words and language. Rivers and mountains don’t need walls, in themselves they are barriers. There is existing structures that need upgrade, that is an upgrade. Then there is the 800 miles that needs new wall.

        Nothing new here, just word repackaging, it is Washington Speak to give the DhimmiRats cover. Will that work? Trump knows it won’t. Everyone here knows it won’t. The wall is death to uncontrolled immigration and Uniparty has pinned their strategy on it.

        Kelly is trying to salvage this attempt at a compromise, but the Big Ugly is coming. These are just skirmishes so far. The prize is 2018 mid terms. Until the midterms are done this is all positioning.

      I think General Kelly has always said just what he thinks, without consideration for how it sounds or how others might interpret it. He’s a military general and tactfulness is not expected of military generals (except for Mad Dog Mattis who treats his troops with care and sometimes even the prisoners). As long as General Kelly takes care of his job and the President, I don’t care what he says.

      IMHO, we should only listen to what comes out of the mouth of our VERY STABLE GENIUS President, Donald J. Trump.

    Kelly is the man. In my opinion.

    This interview showed the tight control Kelly has in what and how he says things. I would not put anything past him, even a little bit of misinformation. He has showed his skill in getting rid of leaks and other problems in the White House. I do not think he controls the President in his decisions, other then keeping the President balanced. The President, by his nature, is very bright and likes to get things done, and Kelly probably moderates the speed, keeping it to Warp 1.

    Pro-Open Borders Hispanic Caucus to Trump Administration: Stop Talking About ‘Chain Migration’
    The pro-open borders Hispanic Caucus has “implored” President Trump’s administration to stop mentioning the process known as “chain migration,” whereby newly naturalized citizens are allowed under the current legal immigration system to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S.
    A report by POLITICO revealed that members of the House Hispanic Caucus — which regularly advocates for more immigration to the U.S. despite its negative impact on America’s working and middle class — asked Trump’s Chief of Staff John Kelly to stop talking about chain migration, which has imported more than 9.3 million foreign nationals to the country since 2005.

    Great interview with General Kelly. On the border wall: President Trump is the architect, General Kelly is the engineer. By 2020, it will be a big, beautiful and effective border wall. And when Secretary Ross and his team rework NAFTA, the USD value of Mexican pesos (20 million) will pay for it.

    On the shithole meeting: General Kelly saw that Durbin and Graham had a losing immigration proposal, and gave President Trump the correct advice to allow the President to re-direct the negotiations toward an America First negotiating position. Durbin and Graham must have thought they could slip one by the President. The race card has been played all week by Durbin and Graham simply because President Trump up-ended their losing proposal. As General Kelly said, when President Trump succeeds, America succeeds.

    When the press and every smart Alec “expert” says the wall will cost 20B, then PT would of course say give me 20B then. Then, once appropriated, PT does what he does, e.g.Bowing, Lockheed, all of his projects, and so on.

    Put another way, these congressmen aren’t more likely to fund a cheap wall – hell, they want the most expensive wall money can buy, its what they do.

In Pareto’s case, it meant 20 percent of the people owned 80 percent of the wealth. In Juran’s initial work applying the 80/20 rule to quality studies, he identified 20 percent of the defects causing 80 percent of the problems. Project Managers know that 20 percent of the work (the first 10 percent and the last 10 percent) consume 80 percent of the time and resources.

      Other examples you may have encountered:

      80% of our revenues are generated by 20% of our customers.
      80% of our complaints come from 20% of our customers.
      80% of our quality issues occur with 20% of our products.

      Or:

      20% of our contributors provide 80% of our funding.
      20% of our employees are responsible for 80% of sick days.
      20% of my ideas generate 80% of my traffic on my blog.”

    I see some wall hysteria is again filtering in all over places.

    When Kelly said that PDJT is
    “evolving on the wall.”
    He meant that not every mile needs a tall wall. Some areas have natural border features and may not need a wall just a smaller fence and patrols on the other side of the natural wall feature.

    Initially maybe many thought Trump meant every mile had to have a tall wall and the same wall. No that was never the case. A large wall is needed in the many open areas but a lesser fence can be placed in some other areas just behind a natural wall or barrier making human traffic hard.

    So you wall the open high traffic areas first and then work back to lesser requirement areas.

    Placing increased border security agents in all areas and all areas get increased surveillance setups.

    2) About the President wanting to be kept informed regularly and “all the time” comments. The President wants and needs much good information flow and there are few real sources of good information. So that is a complement to Kelly that Trump is asking for good information from him. That means he trusts him well.

      Just don’t say the word “drones”. “Drones” means open border.

      Except Trump said this morning: “The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it.” Mr. Kelly said POTUS was evolving on the wall.

      Words mean things and when I hear words from different reliable sources that seem discordant, I first try to reconcile them. I personally think everything is fine here, but it’s OK to question things (as opposed to assuming ill intent). I confess I did raise an eyebrow when I heard the interview, but that’s the extent of it.

      I have always understood the “wall” to represent a barrier that stops or impedes the free-flow of illegals across our border. I think that is the bottom line and that’s the page everyone is on.

    he listens to all in order to make the best decision for america and americans
    his having 98% more information and input reaffirms his initial ideas to maga giving him a different approach or path to reach the same goals for our usa
    he never gives up and never ever reveals his hand to the opposition

    Saving the entire planet from #CrazyTrump until ‘evolution’ & ‘flexibility’ ensues.

  42. I got several things out of the interview. 1. Bret Baier is still a little weasel for the deep state 2. General Kelly wants to seem important. He is important but not as important as he would like to be. 3 General Kelly says Mexico will not pay for the wall and then starts to explain how Mexico or Mexicans will pay for it. Of course Bret didn’t want to hear that. 4 Trumps has not changed his position on anything. A bunch of people want him to say that he is going to change his mind but he doesn’t. Of course there are issues where he will listen to the other side but that is not the same as changing his position in any major way. President Trump continues to orchestrate all the wannabes.

      You have obviously never read the Tsun Tzu: The Art of War book.

      20 billion / 700 miles = $28,571,428 per mile.
      4-lane highway, the cost per mile will run between $4 and $6 million in rural or suburban areas
      It will probably cost a bit more, so lets double the average.
      20 billion / 10 million = 2000 miles
      Even assuming you need to spend 5 million a mile for additional infrastructure for access it is 1333 miles.

      The neigh-bob Nellies of negativism make me neigh.

      We have a friggin master builder of large scale projects at the helm.

      UNDER BUDGET AND AHEAD OF SCHEDULE.

      From Wikipedia
      Wolfman Rink: The rink was closed in 1980 for a proposed two years of renovations at $9.1 million. Six years after the problem-plagued work was still not completed by the city, Donald Trump persuaded Mayor Ed Koch to let him complete the work in four months at $3 million in order to have it open by the end of the year. Koch initially objected but later agreed. Trump finished the job in the promised four months at a final cost 25% below the budget and for no profit.[3][4] The city had originally planned to employ the resource-saving—but largely untested—chemical compound freon to generate ice, but instead time-proven brine was used. The rink reopened to the public on November 13, 1986

    Trump is a master persuader.

    For all ye of little faith, I think your lives would be a whole lot less stressful if you read Scott Adams’ book, “Win Bigly,” to understand exactly how a master persuader works. It would save your blood pressure, I think, and probably your marriage too.

    and it seems now that CuckKelly went into the HISPANIC meeting yesterday and floated a “deal” on DACA that does NOT include a stop to chain migration ….. this guy is a total globalist fraudster Even today the POTUS is having to correct him .. perhaps it’s time for Trump to think about a new chief of staff who does not try to MAKE policy himself

    Also WHY is Pence not doing this work? Pence was supposed to be the big policy negotiater with the House and Senate and he is nowhere to be found

    I did not ever hear of a chief of staff making policy

    Of course the implied and devastating omission is that the President did not say he hasn’t “evolved” on DACA illegal aliens.
