Whither the Donald? Investors Divided Over Perception of Trumponomics
President Donald Trump’s border wall construction is cause for the mainstream media in America to reel and spin, and for the liberals in congress to lose their heads too. The man who started day-one fulfilling campaign promises now has his opposition off balance and punch drunk. Amid all the political mechanics, what if those infrastructure plans he’s touted really can make America the greatest?
The US-Mexico border is 1,933 miles long. In contrast, the Great Wall of China is over 5,500 miles long. Donald Trump wants to secure America’s southern border in the 21st century by undertaking a monumental construction project many say is foolhardy or impossible. Interestingly, most of the Great Wall of China was built during the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644) when the machine of construction was a strong back. In fairness, it seems a look at President Trump’s wall is best undertaken by looking at past US projects, potential future ones, and their effects short and long term.
