Trump is being accused of wanting the wall to fill a campaign promise. Isn't that why politicians make campaign promises?

Usually they make them with no intent to keep them.

Didn't Trump supporters vote for him because he wasn't a politician?

Do any Democrats listen to Warren, Bernie, AOC, Harris? They want to take what the RICH have! HA! The money the rich have, is not sitting in a pile, it is Mobil. The middle class, will get the bill! We always do.
Be careful what you wish for!

Yes, but they are not supposed to really try and keep them

I think the point trying to be made is that his desire for the wall is not due to an imminent threat to national security as he advertises but rather just fulfill a promise to his base as he goes into reelection.

Understood. But doesn't it infer that campaign promises have little to no value?

“think the point trying to be made is that his desire for the wall is not due to an imminent threat to national security as he advertises”

There are 22 million illegal immigrants here TODAY and the drugs and caravans just keep coming. It is indeed security threat.

Most politicians just make promises to get elected and forget about what they promised once they are in office.

Agreed. It seems clear that many Republicans and the Democrats dont want to fix immigration or solve any of our 30 year old problems. They like having the issue to run on. Trump likes to solve the problem one way or the other and on to the next one which is why they try to obstruct everything he does.
