Contractors working on Trump's border wall are pointlessly blowing up chunks of Arizona that they won't have time to actually build on, campaigners say

The U.S. border wall with Mexico is seen from the United States in Nogales, Arizona September 12, 2018. Adrees Lateef/Reuters Contractors working on President Trump's border wall are dynamiting pristine Arizona mountains to make way for construction, campaigners told Business Insider. However — since Trump lost the election it is virtually guaranteed nothing will be built on the freshly-blasted land. President-elect Biden has pledged to halt construction when he takes office on January 20....

President Donald Trump and Amy Coney Barrett stand on the Blue Room Balcony after her confirmation vote passed in the Senate.

A timeline of unfulfilled promises Trump made about his border wall, a cornerstone of his 2016 campaign which has faded from view in 2020

President Donald Trump tours a section of new U.S.-Mexico border wall in San Luis, Arizona, on June 23, 2020. Carlos Barria/Reuters Since long before his presidency, Donald Trump has made the construction of a wall along the border with Mexico his keystone issue.  Since it was first suggested — to rapturous applause — in 2014, the issue has arguably propelled Trump into the presidency. The Washington Post reported that Trump mentioned a wall more than 200 times in his 2016 campaign, though...
