Each mile of building the Trump wall on the border with Mexico will cost taxpayers $ 31 million
The construction of the wall on the Mexican border has reached an unprecedented level of waste. The other day it became known about the conclusion of the largest contract for the construction of the Trump Wall in the amount of $ 1.3 billion.
The general contractor will be the construction company Fisher Sand and Gravel from North Dakota. The scope of works is designed for a total of 42 miles, resulting in a staggering one mile price of nearly $ 31 million.
It is known that Fisher Sand and Gravel's CEO, Tommy Fisher secured the support of the President of the United States during his visits to the White House. After these visits, it became known that Fisher has invested a lot in the Trump campaign and in support of other Republicans.
Now, legal bribes through sponsoring the entire government republican apparatus are yielding results and the state contract is smoothly given to the most generous sponsor.
Prior to this unprecedented squandering of budget funds, the largest contract was considered a contract for the construction of 30 miles for a modest $ 400 million.
And despite such a small cost compared to the new mega-contract, the Defense Department inspector general took a tight look at the investigation of money laundering on a tip from the Democratic half of the Congress, reports Newsweek.
