Trump donors get $569 million contract to build 17 miles of border wall
This was a NON BID transaction. Taboo in any government contract.
I would think that any person running for THE BIG CHAIR would be smart enough to keep as clean as possible until after the election. So goes Donald Trump; not a bright move.
The Army Corps of Engineers revealed Tuesday that it had awarded a $569 million contract to BFBC, an affiliate of Barnard Construction, to build 17.17 miles of the border wall in California. The contract pays more than $33 million per mile, even more than the $20 million per mile that the administration has spent on wall construction thus far.
Some say the contract to Barnard is upwords of over 2 BBBBBBillion.
Something like this can be one of the the torpedos that sinks PDT ship in the election.
Although, TMC did the same thing many times when he was in office. One of the most flagrant/egregious displays of arrogance was when TMC awarded the building of his disastrous website for Obamacare to a Canadian (not American) no bid contract that wound up costing the taxpayers 2 billion dollar$. To top it off, the never company completed the contract and never refunded any of the money they made on the project. Did I forget mention, one of the honchos with the Canadian company (not American) was a classmate of Mrs O when she was in college. VERY BIG COINCIDENT.
TMC never made any apologies or was chastised for his actions.
Oct 25, 2013 · First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is a top executive at the company that earned the contract to build the failed Obamacare website. Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov. CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.
This article is not exactly 100% correct. The used the word EARNED instead of given.
Not too much was made of that caper. Let us see how much noise is going to made over PDT’s little shenanigans. He is 200% wrong; the contract should have gone out for competitive bidding.
Is that enough to sink his ship?? Hard to tell, he continues to surprise the American people more every day.
BUTTTTT, I will go so far as to say; no matter how bad PDT can be, J J has him beat by 1,000%.
When I drive around and see the Biden – Harris signs on people’s lawns; I say to myself, what the hell are these people looking at. Do they see the same clowns as I do?? Obviously not.
Did I mention that a very large portion of the wall is already collapsing and being undermined by the tides in that area. Barnard Construction never went through the proper channels or submitted any plans for the walls construction before starting construction. I guess he figured, he has THE MAN on his side, who does he have to worry about.
Not a very good move Mr. Trump.
