Steel slats need paint every few months, because rust.
It costs at minimum $7 to paint steel per lineal foot including labor.
Each 20’ slat $70 ( forget the Mexican side)
$370,000 a mile.
$730 million to keep border baby from rusting and falling apart twice a year.
Knowing how “efficient” our bidding and contract award process is? Round that up to a billion.
This fuxker knows about construction as my dog knows about geometry.
Now if we paint the other side of slats ( the Mexican side) that is $2 billion a year... and dangling shit on the other side.... the labor alone could take 6 months. So by the time they finish they will have to start all over again.
Now, take $5 billion, invest it in making shit we usually make in China, but this time in Ecuador, el Salvador, Mexico and give incentives to American companies to make shit south.
Boom. Half the crossings are gone.
I forgot...all the costs related to torching...
Mr el pendejo Stupident trump, here is a steel slats nemesis:
#wall #SteelSlatBarrier
It will also cost about $2 million a mile to build roads to get heavy shit to remote area of the border not including the engineering and maintenance costs. Multiply that by a few thousand miles.
All of this is not taking into account one simple fact: NOTHING THE GOV DOES IS ON BUDGET. Nothing!
No they won’t use 20 year paint like people are tweeting in the thread here is why:

- we award bids to lowest bidder.
- it is not good business to do something for the government once. Uncle Sam is the gift that keeps in giving.

This whole wall nonsense is nothing but protecting his ego while maintaining the racist base. Also, video sports for 2020.
