In Donald Trump, Americans elected not just a renowned real estate mogul, master negotiator and marketing wiz but the one-time host of a high-stakes reality TV show. Even so, did anyone imagine that having Trump as president would be this entertaining?
Every day brings news that is sure to put a smile on any patriot’s face. Sometimes it’s a terrific tweet from the president himself. Other times, it’s watching the new Secretary of the Interior show up on his first day at work riding a horse.
But this next story is especially gratifying — how can you not grin from ear to ear?
His critics made fun of Trump when he vowed that he was going to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it. Some people joked that he could always get Mexican workers to build it, since they’d have so much construction experience under their tool belts.
But who saw this coming?
A Mexican cement company says it would aid the construction of President Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border if asked.
“We will gladly do it,” Cemex President Rogelio Zambrano told Mexican newspaper Reforma Wednesday, according to NBC News.
Zambrano was answering whether Cemex, one of the world’s largest cement producers, would provide a cement estimate for the controversial barrier.
Now this would put the Trump administration in a bit of a bind.
There are reportedly over 200 companies that have already voiced interest in constructing this wall. The competition for this massive, lucrative and prestigious contract is already intense, and formal requests for proposals don’t even come due until May.
But the thing is, Trump has already made it clear that he wants to “buy American and hire American.”
He’s also made it part of the new pipeline agreements that only U.S. steel can be used to construct them.
So would he really award the wall construction contract to, not just a foreign firm, but a Mexican one?
Maybe he would. After all, just this once, it might be worth violating his own “made in America” policy simply to see the media and the left’s reaction to the ultimate irony:
