Well, Trumpers don't care about drilling for oil in "a small portion of a place most Americans will never see" (Alaska) nor apparently do they care about doing significant damage or completely destroying more than 20 archaeological sites in a natural park in the heart of Arizona’s Sonoran Desert in order to keep the orange clown's campaign promise to build "the wall".

"Natural and cultural resources in the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, 517 square miles of mountain ranges and desert land, would be put at risk from the building of the wall...

Scientists have found stone tools, rock shelters, artifacts and ancient engravings in the area, which has been populated for 16,000 years. That includes the historic Quitobaquito Springs, where ancient cultures obtained seashells and salt along what is known as the Old Salt Trail...

Environmental experts said the construction of the wall will affect more than just the archaeological sites identified in the report. The unearthing of the area surrounding the barriers and the installation of lights on the wall will devastate wildlife and contaminate cultural lands...

'It’s not going to reduce drugs or immigration of asylum seekers. It’s just pretty wallpaper to fulfill a campaign promise that should have never been made.'"

Also note that tribal leaders say that "...the border wall would virtually split the indigenous community in half."

But who cares about that community or about the Old Salt Trail or about cultural lands? Gotta build that wall!!

I'm wondering about the west Texas folks who own ranches along the border. Some ranches date back in lifetimes or centuries. Now Pinocchio wants to confiscate their land.

Will they second-guess their votes for him?

Trump Tower is a small place most Americans will never see. Let's search there for something to extract!

It'd be a federal Superfund site for toxic waste.
