Ronnie Revisited, Berlin 1987
Mr. Gorbachev, build that wall, and we are going to pay for it. We need a big beautiful wall. We cannot have border security without a wall. The Soviets are not sending their best. They’re sending spies. They’re sending agent provocateurs. They’re sending criminals. They’re sending socialists. They are digging tunnels, climbing over the wire. They are coming to take away the safety of our loved ones. Mars needs women! Our brave soldiers are detaining and turning back thousands of American haters every day, but they cannot do their job with just the wall they have now, a fence really. The Democrats are responsible; they want the socialists taking our women and land. They are not like the Saudis; I love the Saudis. They are buying up land around my ranch in California, giving me millions of dollars for it. Not like that dirty human trafficking money coming under the current wall, going into German banks which I have not gotten a piece of yet. It will help us pay for the wall because once that big beautiful wall is up, the tunnels under it will get bigger and better and more illegal moneys will flow through them into America’s pockets to offset the new tax breaks for the wealthy and they can build up offshore bases to hide their tax-free moneys. Just wait for the Clinton years and banking deregulation. Selling off failing loans to buy more failing loans until the house of cards falls and oligarchs everywhere walk away scot-free. The oligarchs will have the best people, the best lawyers to stall the legal process until they only wind up with a minimal fine that won’t even put a dent in their profits. The IRS won’t even prosecute people who litigate because they can’t afford it on a government budget. Yes Mr. Gorbachev, build that wall!
