President Donald Trump's 2020 team has found a rather clever way to cash in on the border wall debate. Supporters who want a wall can now pay $20.20 to have a fake brick sent to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
“Weeks after the Democrats began stonewalling President Trump in his fight to secure our border, the American people now have a chance to send a clear message to Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi about the need to build the wall,” a fundraising email sent Friday read.
But according to Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, this isn't just a fundraising tactic. It's also a way for the president to push his agenda.
“Since Chuck and Nancy keep stonewalling the president, we’ll send the wall to them, brick by brick, until they agree to secure the border,” Parscale told Fox News.
Each brick contains facts about “the crime, drugs, and human trafficking that result from open borders," Parcale said.
One of the campaign's goals is to get 100,000 bricks sent to Pelosi and Schumer.
"We have set a goal to send 100,000 BRICKS to their offices to prove that WALLS WORK!" Trump's campaign website states.
President Donald Trump wants $5.7 billion for a border wall along the United States-Mexico border. On Saturday, he offered to give Democrats protections for DREAMers, those illegal aliens who were brought America when they were a child, in exchange for border security. Speaker Pelosi was quick to say Democrats would reject the deal, even before Trump made his official announcement.
The offer comes on the heels of a 28 day government shutdown that has no end in sight.
