An episode of a 1950s Western drama may have foretold America’s current border wall crisis more than 60 years ago. Politics today and the show both feature men named Trump with a wall that is promised to protect every citizen from danger.

Trackdown” aired on CBS between 1957 and 1959 and took place in Texas following the Civil War. The series followed Texas Ranger Hoby Gilman, played by Robert Culp, on his adventures protecting the people of the Lone Star State. The 30th episode of the show, titled “The End of The World,” premiered on May 9, 1958, and saw a con man named Walter Trump, played by Lawrence Dobkin, attempt to scam the entire town.

Trump: Drones are ‘fun’ — but only ‘Wall or Barrier’ will work

Trump: Drones are ‘fun’ — but only ‘Wall or Barrier’ will work President Trump said again Sunday that he will only take a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border — though he admitted that the use of drones is “lots of fun.” “The only way to stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking, criminal elements and much else from coming into our Country is with a Wall or Barrier. Drones and all of the rest are wonderful and lots of fun, but it is only a good old fashioned Wall that works!” Trump said in a morning tweet. The only way to stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking, criminal elements and much else from coming into our Country is with a Wall or Barrier.

His solution was to build a wall made of magical metal that would repel the meteors and keep everyone safe. As the citizens started to believe Trump, he offered to give them walls for $50 each. However, Ranger Gilman wasn’t convinced. Pandemonium erupted in the town, but in the end Gilman arrests Trump for grand theft and fraud.

Even though “Trackdown” was a fictional show, the events of that episode closely mirror what is happening today. As today’s government shutdown enters its third week with no compromise on the Mexican border wall in sight, the country may be hoping for a Ranger Gilman of its own to bring an end to it.

Trump Suggests New Border Strategy: ‘We Will Build a Human Wall’.
President Donald Trump appears to be suggesting a military solution to border security if he cannot get his much-desired funding for his wall and finds the declaration of a national emergency to be politically unviable as well. In his first tweet of the day, Trump warned of "tremendous numbers" of immigrants waiting to pour across the southern border. He used this to defend the news that the Pentagon recently sent thousands of U.S. troops to assist with border security. Tremendous numbers of people are coming up through Mexico in the hopes of flooding our Southern Border.
