1. The following are excerpts from a news report dated 3 January, 2019 under the headline "‘Could be a while’: Trump refuses to budge in shutdown standoff".

(Begin excerpts)
...The new Congress will gavel into session on Thursday, with Democrats taking over the majority in the House of Representatives. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) has sworn that Trump will “never” get money for the wall, while the most likely new Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) repeatedly denounced Trump’s wall as “immoral, ineffective and expensive.”

Trump has countered by arguing that the wheel is an ancient technology as well, pointing out that if walls didn’t work, former President Barack Obama wouldn’t have one around his home. He also dismissed Democrat arguments for a more high-tech solution as not enough.

“The wheel, the wall, some things never get old,” he said on Wednesday.... (End excerpts)

2. With reference to Trump's quote "The wheel, the wall, some things never get old", I coin the term "wallwheel" as a noun to mean "eternal youth" and as a verb to mean "to keep oneself young”. The idea is that the wheel of time comes to a halt after hitting a wall. The following joke shows the use of the new term.

One day, Tommy met someone whom he thought was his childhood friend. He greeted his supposed friend: "Hi, my great friend Robin! There is not much change in your look since our last meeting 50 years ago. You seem to have discovered the key to wallwheel."

His supposed friend replied: "I don't have any secret to wallwheel myself. I am not Robin but his son Jack. Uncle Tommy, have you forgotten about me? You used to come to my house to play chess with my father when I was a child. Despite your wrinkles and white hair, the big birthmarks on the left side of your face are instantly recognisable."

1...... Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) repeatedly denounced Trump’s wall as “immoral, ineffective and expensive.”

Trump has countered by arguing that the wheel is an ancient technology as well, pointing out that if walls didn’t work.....
Thus proving Trump is a liar, an idiot or both. Saying a wall is “immoral, ineffective and expensive” is a claim that walls don’t work. It just claims, at least in the case of illegal immigration, a wall isn’t the best solution. A wall won’t stop visa overstays nor will it remove the 12 million illegals already here. Therefore, compared to legislation that stops people from hiring or harboring illegals, a wall is “...ineffective and expensive”.

Immoral is a different matter. If she meant it’s immoral because it uses Eminent Domain to take land from Americans, block animal migratory paths and is wasteful of American taxdollars, then I agree that it’s immoral. If she means because it stops families from seeking asylum, then I disagree. Just put up signs that say “follow the arrows to the gate”.
