The flailing Trump presidency continues on its inept trajectory. Jared will be blamed when the wall is not built.

President Trump has put his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in charge of overseeing the construction of the border wall, The Washington Post reported Monday.

Current and former administration officials told the Post that Kushner has taken the lead on the wall construction project, holding biweekly meetings covering the progress of the wall, contractor data, the location of the wall and how funding is being used.

Kushner is reportedly pressuring U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to speed up the process of obtaining private land along the U.S.-Mexico border to build the wall.

The president’s son-in-law is reportedly pushing to get 450 miles of barriers along the border finished before the 2020 election. Officials told the Post that more than 800 filings to seize private property need to be made to make that happen.

Kushner has frustrated officials with his lack of knowledge about government and his high expectations for the timeline, some told the Post.

“So he took a much more hands-on role in figuring out, mile by mile, how to get more wall up,” a person involved with the construction told the Post. “It didn’t help put wall up faster and cheaper. His interventions actually just created more inefficiency in the process.”

“Smugglers cut a massive hole in a section of U.S.-Mexico border wall and then drove a truck through it Wednesday, federal agents said after tracking down and arresting all 16 people who had entered in the truck. The audacious plan culminated at around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday when the smugglers cut the truck-sized hole in an old section of the border wall near Campo, Calif., about 50 miles east of San Diego, and drove a white Dodge utility truck across the border, according to a report from the Sacramento Bee.” (NYDailyNews)

About 83 miles of border barrier has been built since his election in 2016, but almost all of that has been replacements of sections that had already been built. Construction on the first new section of wall got underway in Texas just last month.

Screw the wall, jarvanka and all the hypocrites associated with it. Use the money to help get all of those families at those detention centers. The psychological pain those children and parents suffered will be a life long battle. Put your money where your mouth is

LOL, he just guaranteed it will not be built. Everything Kushner, like Trump touches dies or gets so screwed up it never becomes reality.

It always gets me when I see these land grabs for supposed government necessities. They go out and basically steal people’s properties. Now if it was them they would scream to high heaven but we are supposed to roll over and take it in the ass.
