That'd be a true drain the swamp move.

I have little to zero faith a government project of that size isn't full of bloated contracts and kick-downs to friends.

Award him the contract with a performance clause . $100 million a day penalty they are behind schedule.

This will determine real quick how confident he is in getting it built.

If he's confident. I'd negotiate a $100 million bonus for each day I'm ahead of schedule

He was on Wilkow yesterday and said that he has the manpower, equipment, and expertise that they could build up to two miles a day once they get going. I say for every landowner that gripes about losing their property for the wall needs to not have a wall built across their property and they can deal with the illegals.

I agree with his idea but I would be willing to bet that doesn't include purchasing any land from the people that currently own it. While the 8 billion does seem a little steep, surely some of that is tagged as land purchase. But I would also be willing to bet there are many people getting rich under an expenditure that large.

Those landowners are few I promise. That being said leave there fence open and have BP agents patrol it 24 hrs. They will come around to wanting one.
