For Trump, everything ends when the Wall comes down.

“If the Wall should ever fall, all the fires will go out.”– Qhorin Halfhand in book two of “A Song of Ice and Fire”

“The Wall can stop an army, but not a man alone.”– Mance Rayder in book three of “A Song of Ice and Fire”

But when the reporter asks Trump if there can be a deal without the Wall, he says, “No, there wouldn’t be. You need it. I’d love not to build the Wall, but you need the Wall.” Let that sink in for a minute. “I’d love not to build the Wall,” he says. This is a man whose job is to build things. He should love the idea of building a Wall. He doesn’t love it. He has to build it.

“On the Wall, a man gets only what he earns.” — Benjen Stark in book one of “A Song of Ice and Fire”
