The Divide

BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL! This is the new theme, for two years until the Wall is finished (under construction now), of the Republican Party. Use it and pray!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 23, 2019

Trumps parrots his theme as @realDonaldTrump. But he also claims that it is the theme of the Republican party. Due to the difficult relation between Trump and truth, you better check with @GOP how true that is.


@MarianKamensky1 explains the real objective of Donald Trump's toxic wall project: Divide the USA and rule.

In 2014, Trumps spin doctors chose “wall” as a mnemonic device designed to help Trump to polarize and divide US voters. Poisoning the discourse helps Trump and his party to avoid to give reason for their claims. Today Trump and the GOP play the media quite successfully with this toxic tool.

A strange interview shows how GOP communicators try to control the usage of language. The GOP communication seemingly doesn’t feel to comfortable with the term “wall” anymore. While Trump, the Republican President, is using “Wall” or “WALL” ad nauseam, Kellyanne Conway in an Orwellian attempt of speech control doesn’t want journalists to use that term.

An exchange between my colleague @abbydphillip and WH counselor Kellyanne Conway on whether to it’s okay to call the president’s wall a wall. It’s worth reading all the way through.
