In other news, the Supreme Court has cleared the Massachusetts attorney general's office to obtain records from Exxon Mobil that could prove the oil giant lied to company shareholders about the risks of climate change for decades.

Jared Kushner, the president’s senior adviser, said he was bringing good outside business knowledge to the wall negotiations. He said the reason the wall price was going up was because of an increase in customer utilization for the border. Customer demand, he said, results in overruns.

The wall price is going up because of Trump's tariffs on imports of foreign metal, not "customer utilization" -- whateverthefuck that means -- of a border that is mostly an empty desert.
