Donald Trump is known for manufacturing. As a real estate developer, his company has built some of the biggest and most beautiful buildings all over the world. As president, Donald Trump’s policies are responsible for the creation of hundreds of thousands of new manufacturing jobs in the United States.
Now President Trump is manufacturing crisis’s according to the mainstream media. “The President used the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis at the southern border,” said almost 3 million mainstream media pundits.
The media loves using c-words for Trump. Conspiracy, collusion, and crisis are some of the new ones. Another c-word, the Clinton Foundation, made a tweet today regarding the “opioid crisis.”
No one solution can resolve the opioid crisis—and no single organization can fix it—but together we can make a big difference. https://t.co/Nt2LnO6csL— Clinton Foundation (@ClintonFdn) January 9, 2019
I looked up some statistics on opiod deaths. In 2017, the number of deaths from prescription opiods was over 19,000. That averages out to over 350 deaths per week. During Trump’s Oval Office speech, he stated that heroin deaths average around 300 per week, and 90% of all heroin comes here across our open southern border.
Let’s look at some other statistics. Just after a migrant caravan crashed across the southern border into San Diego late last year, the government built new walls in that area. The result was a 92% drop in border crossings in that area.
If barriers are proven to at least be 92% effective in stopping crossings, common sense dictates that more wall would effectively lower the amount of deaths from drugs pouring over the border.
So Donald Trump manufactured a crisis at the border? Let him end the crisis by manufacturing a wall. It’s the only logical solution.
