My identical cousin Thimbles O'Hooligan writes on Facebook:
I've had a brainwave that'll help that nice Mr Trump build his wall. Taxpayers don't want to pay for it, Mexicans won't pay for it. Trump supporters want it, so why doesn't he start a fund, put in, say, $5 million of his own money to build the first mile, get his billionaire friends to sponsor a mile each. his poorer supporters could club together and pay for a few feet, get their names on it. Then see how far it gets. When we contributed to a theatre project some years ago we could have our name on a brick, larger donations got you a named seat and so on right up to naming an auditorium. Surely his supporters would rush...

Surely at lot of people, especially Southerners, would want the brick to be near them? I imagine he could get the whole length filled to one or two bricks high.

Too late, Roger- its been done:

9 Jan 2019

A GoFundMe page to raise money for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall, created on Dec. 16, has raked in over $19.7 million in just over three weeks with an ultimate goal of $1 billion,

Imminent domain seizure of private land has been used for private projects but it is dirty business.

As a rule the more severe/murderous the wall the more incredible the tunnel.

kinetic walls are expensive
toxic walls are indescriminent
great walls of China were mainly defeated by bribing guards
military razor wire injures our soldiers more than immigrants.

DMcG, to the contrary - people who live near the border don't want a wall. It's people distant from the area who *think* a wall is needed to protect them from people who can actually get here through so many routes that a wall is, seriously, only a way to affect wildlife and block the view. The one-or-two brick wall you mention would be a tripping hazard. :-)

So more than half the money will have to be spent on those plastic 'trip hazard' signs?

The shutdown cost over 11 billion dollars.
I don't know how much it will cost for new Trump rally signs that say 'Promises made-Promises wept'.
Trumps agenda is 'bordering' on a Final Solution for brown people.
Take their kids, create an impossible backlog, increase suffering and hatred.

Breitbart. That name alone is enough to discount any information they distort and shove out to their followers.

That Forbes list shows such things as the Washington, D.C. hotel, but he doesn't own that. The General Services Administration owns and leases it to Trump. So the business IN the hotel may be his, but the building isn't.

His corruption is illustrated in that list of holdings. How he uses them is Constitutionally illegal. At some point someone may call him out officially. Emoluments again.

Brian Kolfage is/was the person behind a Gofundme account to "build the wall." You'll have to look this up yourself.
