- Likely requires lots of eminent domain
- Is predicated on a highly dubious 'emergency'
- Unshackles Trump from the Constitution

Tried to figure out the exact durations of the various investigations into the Obama administration that undercut Trump's insistence this morning that no such investigations occurreed.
