Texas Man Who Voted Trump Lashes Out At The President’s ‘Stupid Wall’: ‘It’s Gonna Ruin My Lifestyle’
Richard Drawe, a resident in Welasco, Texas, who has supported Donald Trump throughout his presidency, is now growing tired of the man in the White House.
Drawe spoke to NPR this week as Trump plans to build a wall along his backyard.
“I’m 70 years old and it’s gonna ruin my lifestyle here of living in the country,” he told NPR. “To have that wall there is just going to really disturb me.”
Drawe said that he reluctantly sold a piece of his land to the federal government for the wall’s construction, and while he agrees with Trump’s immigration policies, he’s upset that the wall is being built in his property.
“I told them that this stupid wall is going to have lights on it. It’s going to be like being behind a prison wall, lights and everything,” Drawe said. “And I said, ‘You put them lights up on me and my house, I’m going to shoot them out.’ Of course, I had time to calm down.”
“Like I told the Border Patrol, I said ‘Look, you know good and well that once you build this wall all the agents will be doing is patrolling up and down the wall. They’re never going to go on down to the river anymore.’ And he yelled back at me, ‘Oh, the Rio Grande is the first line of defence.’ Baloney. You just wait a few years.”
