  • The recently minted Marine shot to internet stardom in May when the Corps tweeted a picture of him showing up to boot camp with a magnificent mullet and a Budweiser t-shirt along with the caption, “Business in the Front, Party in the Back.”
  • His picture yielded nearly 7,000 comments on Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego’s Facebook page, including this one: “I’d like to think he skipped the bus ride to MCRD and pulled up burnin' rubber in his El Camino with Marlboro smoke pouring out the windows jamming to Skynyrd before he stepped out then shotgunned a Budweiser.”

With a legal fight challenge mounting from state governments over the Trump administration's use of a national emergency to construct at the U.S.-Mexico border, the president has kicked his push for the barrier into high gear.

On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted a time-lapse video of wall construction in New Mexico; the next day, he proclaimed that "THE WALL IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION RIGHT NOW"
