John Oliver Breaks Down The Numbers On The Infamous "Trump Wall"

John Oliver of HBOs Last Week Tonight breaks down one of the few "policy" proposals we have any kind of detail on from Donald Trump - the now infamous "Trump Wall.

Noting that Trump's numbers on building the wall have changed over the past several months from $4-12 billion,  crunching the figures leads to a much higher price tag - more like $26 billion.

And, then the actual maintenance doubles that figure over the first 7 years of the project.

Oliver also delves into the idea of "making" Mexico pay for the wall, and more.

Some funny stuff in here, but at the very least you come away realizing that even the few things Trump thinks he's thought out, actually have no "there" there.
