The $1 BILLION Man — Maybe…

From Eli Stokols writing at Politico:

At a press conference at the nearby softball field where his helicopter landed, Trump held forth before close to a hundred members of the media, repeating the same slogans about making the country “great” and brushing off questions about his fuzzy policy positions, telling reporters that they were far more concerned about the details than voters are.

“I don’t think the people care. I think they trust me. I think they know I’m going to make good deals for them,” Trump puffed.

He again argued that Jeb Bush, by virtue of his $120 million campaign warchest, would be beholden to his donors. Moments later, he avowed that he’d be willing to spend $1 billion on his campaign “if I had to.”

“I make $400 million a year, OK?” Trump said.

    Here is what CNBC says about Trump’s plan for illegal immigrants:

    In March, American Action Forum, a center-right policy institute led by former CBO director Douglas Holtz-Eakin, estimated it would take between $100 billion and $300 billion to arrest and remove “all undocumented immigrants residing in the country, a process that we estimate would take 20 years,” the group said.

    Once those undocumented immigrants had been removed, it would take another $315 billion in higher enforcing costs to keep them from coming back, according to AAF.

    That estimate includes just the hard cost of removing undocumented workers; it doesn’t take into account the economic impact that would result from the removal of some 11 million people from the labor force and the resulting loss of consumer spending.

    AAF estimated the removal of that many people would shrink the pool of U.S. workers by 6.4 percent, which means that 20 years from now the U.S. economy would be nearly 6 percent cent smaller. That works out to a loss of $1.6 trillion in lost wages, spending and other economic activity.
