Gloria Berger, CNN’s Chief Political Analyst, recently wrote a piece that makes a great deal of sense. In sum, she argued that Trump sees his border wall as a monument to himself.
As evidence Berger quotes Trump from the 2015 campaign where Trump said this:
“What I do best in life, I build. … I want it to be so beautiful because maybe someday they’ll call it ‘The Trump Wall.’ Maybe. If they call this ‘The Trump Wall,’ it has to be beautiful.”
Well of course. The wall has to be symbolic for Trump’s racism and for his narcissism both.
