MSNBC Panel Compares Trump to Benedict Arnold

Contrary to the panelists’ conclusion that collusion is the only logical explanation, Trump’s policies toward Russia have not been uniformly friendly. Trump has followed other post-Cold War presidents by starting his presidency seeking more friendly relations with Russia, but his administration has still levied sanctions against individuals and companies in key sectors such as energy.

"When you actually look at the substance of what this administration has done, not the rhetoric but the substance, this administration has been much tougher on Russia than any in the post-Cold War era," Daniel Vajdich, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, told NPR last year.

Various other mainstream outlets have similarly reported that Trump’s record is not uniformly friendly toward Russia.

So republicucks caved on the wall? Color me surprised.
The move I would watch for is Trump going "the experts asked for more, you guys are playing political games, thanks for the pennies i'll finish this myself and fulfill the official requests of the experts so we can move on".

this guy gets the framing

If you stand in a flat area you can only see ~5 miles in any direction even from up on a raised stage owing to the curvature of the Earth.

Just have Trump hold a rally in the middle of the 55 miles of new fence and he can just say the whole thing is finished.
