In all my years I have never, ever, seen a president grovel so much about getting their way on something. This goes beyond a normal obsession. Why is Trump embarrassingly consuming every waking minute to spout lie after lie about why he has to have this wall built?
I have come up with two conclusions about why Trump is so obsessed with his wall.
1.) He wants to divert attention away from all of his problems and the Mueller investigation and this seems to be the perfect diversion. Trump spends all his time devoted to this Wall and the Press is being suckered into reporting this thinking it is actually news. It isn't. It is nothing but a ruse, a diversion, a trick. Call it what you wish but Trump is manipulating everyone, including the Press. When Trump felt there wasn't enough attention being diverted away from all the investigations he comes up with this idea of getting the wall built by declaring a National Emergency. Just another diversionary tactic and one of his many empty threats.
He desperately needs to show that he has at least kept one of his promises so he can brag about it in his State of the Union speech. Last year Trump was hoping on bragging about TrumpCare and what a great program that was and we all know what happened to that don't we?
2.) Now with the Democrats winning back the House and a few of the House committees are talking about investigating so many things related to Trump and his financial dealings we can probably see even more desperation from Trump and the question is, will the Wall be enough of a diversion or will he do something dangerously stupid to divert attention away from him? I think he is desperate enough to do something really stupid which can hurt hundreds of thousands or even millions more of Americans like he did with his Government shutdown.
