President Trump granted clemency on Tuesday to Stephen K. Bannon, the former White House chief strategist who was charged with defrauding political donors who supported building a border wall that Mr. Trump advocated, White House officials said.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has been arrested after being charged with defrauding hundreds of thousands of donors through their campaign “We Build the Wall.”

Bannon, along with three of his associates were indicted by investigators at the U.S. Southern District of New York on Thursday. They allege that the group of conservative leaders defrauded donors and that led to raising “more than $25 million to build a wall along the southern border of the United States,” according to the press release.

I predict that Trump won't run for president again. He's going to make a @#$%&-ton of money pretending he will, though.

Agree with Donna. He'll start the Trump Pac very shortly imho.

Somewhere I heard during the Trump Era only something like 47 miles of wall was actually built. Does anyone know? Seems like an incredibly short distance for all the hoopla involved.

Actually only 15 miles of new wall was built where no wall or barriers existed previously. If you count new wall and replacement wall about three or four hundred miles was built. I posted a BBC article about it a couple of weeks ago. The cost has been 15 billion dollars.

Not exactly.

By January 5, 2021, 452 miles (727 km) had been built, all but about 47 miles (76 km) being replacement of existing outdated or dilapidated barriers. On 12 January 2021, Trump held remarks at the border wall in Alamo, Texas after construction of the wall hit a milestone of 450 mi (720 km).

That must be where they got the 47 miles.
