Native American tribe is going to stop Trump building the wall on their land

quote [ The Tohono O’odham Nation, a federally recognised tribe with a reservation that spans 75 miles along the US-Mexico border, said on Thursday that it does not support the proposed wall and will attempt to block construction if it goes ahead.

In a statement it criticised the White House for signing an executive order without consulting the tribe, and hinted at Standing Rock-style mass resistance if necessary. The tribal vice-chairman has previously said the government could build the wall “over my dead body”. ]

It would be the ultimate irony if Native Americans saved the US.

The category is more of a sad prediction.

Why am I not surprised that no one in the Trump camp even thought about this?

Equally likely: They did think about it, looked at the history of Native Americans vs. the government and disregarded it as a concern.

Well, they are a bunch of losers.

About another month til Standing Rock warms up enough to resume work. Maybe the border wall right-of-way will provide some leverage against the pipeline.

As a colleague said to me, Trump is a pretty good checkers player who thinks he's a Chess Master.
