President Trump's push for the border wall is going to the next level. People are now able to "send a brick" to either Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer.
President Trump is not backing down from his signature campaign promise. He is pushing for $5.7 billion to construct a wall along the border and the Democrats refuse to provide any funding for the wall. Because of this stalemate there is no end in sight to the record-breaking partial government shutdown.
Our president did find a clever way to send his message to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Minority Senate Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

On the official "build the border wall" website, for a donation of $20.20 you can send a faux red brick that has facts on it regarding to why there needs to be a border wall to either Pelosi or Schumer's office. Even though the message is being sent on bricks, the actual wall is supposed to be steel slats.

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale has ripped into top Democrats for "stonewalling" President Trump and his commitment to secure the border.
In the campaign email Parascale said these bricks will teach the Democratic leaders “the truth about the crime, drugs, and human trafficking that result from open borders.”
“We’ll send the wall to them, brick by brick, until they agree to secure the border,” he finished.
