    Spike pits are banned from war and were highly effective. He'd want them if he could get away with it.

    11 ft. wall? = 12 ft. ladder. 4 ft. deep? = 5 ft. belowSteel slats? = hacksawHardware store distance from border? = 1 mileCost of ladder? = Under $20 U.S.Continuous? = NOT POSSIBLE.

    Let me draw a picture to those who dont want a wall in the Southern Boarder. For all those that dont want the wall in the Southern boarder let me make a suggestion to you. When you go to work, do lock your house. In fact dont lock up your car. Do lock up your banks, churches, or business or schools. Take the locks off all your school your kids lockers and purses and banking accounts. Arent these barriers that stop people from stealing, and giving your kids drugs. Isnt the structure of you house has walls that separate the bathrooms from the bedrooms. Is the the outside door is lock . Isnt your window lock. Isnt the school outside door lock to a wall to keep your kids safety. If you dont want a wall at the boarder, just keep your schools doors unlock and when you have another school shooting, please dont call the police. Don go on the television, utubes, and Iphones and be this drama queen because you dont want to build a wall. In fact just visit Mexico and try to live there for a year. You are cowards. You want to safe guard your children. When there is a school shooting then you cry and have the whole world to feel sorry for you. Just stop!!!!! When somecome into your house and do damage to your house then you want make scene. Just stop and suck up to consequences for NOT BUILDING THE WALL. Pelosi has a wall around her house. She make enough money to send her kids to a safe school. What is your problem. BUILD THAT WALL!!!!!!

    Ummmm... Bad work by the Late Show! When mocking others lack of knowledge of history, good to know history yourself. In 1219, there WAS NO SPAINAt best, you have to say Castile.............. If you think that's way above the knowledge of the average American, then you have to say King of France, because there was no SPAIN in 1219

    "The wheel is older than the wall" I love how Trump pulls alternate facts out of his rump. He makes an art form of it.

    Wall will help but, all we need is a machine gun nest every 1000 yards and a few drones and snipers. MAGA 2020

    Trump is a medieval solution, just like leeches and a leather codpiece.

    The king seems much stronger than the builder, no matter how big his hands are.

    That so called "Medieval solution" had no problem keeping the undesirables out of China for over 270 years. Perhaps you have heard of it. It is called the The Great Wall of China. It did its job for longer then the US has even existed. If the Trump wall lasts even 1/4 of the time the China wall did it would be a smashing success. Hay Dems....... Comparing Trumps wall to so called Medieval solutions that actually worked for over 270 year is not going to help your cause much..........

    The wheel is a medieval solution. This is a stupid argument against securing our borders.

    Screw walls; if you really want to stop an invasion, hire a bunch of Polish Winged Hussars. :D

    “It worked back then” yeah for a time. Until the invention of siege engines. Then they practically became useless. Pound a wall long enough and it comes down. Hey, how many functioning tanks are in Mexico?
