do you have any idea how fucking expensive that wall would be if it was 10-20 dollars per brick?
let's assume the wall just a a 1 brick thick wall, 10 feet tall, the length of the US border realistically the wall would be several bricks thick
assuming standard brick dimensions 3 5/8 x 2 1/4 x 8 (inches)
the US border is ~1,933 miles.
the wall would be 15,309,360 bricks long, and 60 bricks high meaning this would be a 918,561,600 brick wall. At $10-$20/brick this would be $9,185,616,000 - $18,371,232,000 wall.
I'd like you to keep in mind that I completed jewed out on this wall, making this wall probably 5-10 times fewer only taking into account brick cost, no labour / gas / cement. Not to mention the fact that trump keeps saying "the wall just got 10 feet higher" I'm kidding. Keeping it light.
Realistically, given your brick costs, I could see this wall costing over $30 billion.

i'm not arguing whether this wall is justified.
I'm arguing this wall's cost isn't realistic, because the government would never be willing to spend this much.
a more realistic estimate for brick cost would be $1, which is still probably way more than it would actually cost.
building materials are usually cheap as dirt, especially in bulk.

those are just the bricks sold the same way bonds where it's a way to fund at least part of the wall without add to the government budget which is one of our biggest focuses it's a smart business deal that does what the buyers want and doesn't cost more then the government can afford we put 100 billion into our roads ever year and they still dont look much better i say take the remaining cost from the wall out of the roadways budget and get the private contractors to re-evaluate their businesses if they want the contract to return

Standard length of cement brick: 16 inches
Length of US/Mexico border in inches: 126,000,000
Number of bricks it would take to make it all the way across the border: 7876250
Number of bricks it would take to make the wall as high as Trump wants it: 866,387,500
Total cost of wall provided $10 per block: $8,663,875,000
Actually not bad for a wall spanning the entire US-Mexico border. Not sure it would actually be enough though because you have to pay the workers and everything.

>>#17, lol you beat me to it.
however you're only taking into account brick cost.
Transporting those bricks would be insane.
I don't think this wall would be realistic at this brick cost.
standard cement brick volume is 12.5 liters, and a dump truck can carry about a thousand of these bricks.
about 800,000 dump truck loads for this wall.
unfortunately I don't have much way of estimating distance traveled, so I'll leave that open to some other loser who might wana do the math.
I imagine it's ugly.

Well each brick doesn't actually cost $10. That supposedly pays for some of the labor. But the final cost would still probably have to wind up more than twice that. You just can't build a wall of that size that cheaply. There's too much that goes into it. But I don't know how far he's actually planned the whole thing out. It could turn out that there's some way that $10-$20 per brick could pay for the whole thing, or maybe they'd be using smaller bricks. Who knows?
