The First Prototypes Of Trump’s Wall Are Complete, And It’s A Terrifying Reminder That It’s Really Happening
One of the biggest pledges that Donald Trump made during his presidential campaign was to build a bloody wall between Mexico and the US in an attempt to stop illegal immigration into the country. He also claimed that he would get Mexico to pay for this wall. Wow.
Despite Mexican officials saying that the country would not cough up the millions required, Trump said it would be done by seizing remittances from undocumented immigrants and increasing the amount charged to Mexicans for entry visas to the US. What a nice guy.
The president’s idea to divide the two nations in this way has been met with a lot of criticism. The ridiculous wall will stretch a vast 2,000 miles along the Mexican border, and it has been estimated that could cost up to $70 billion to build.
When Trump was inaugurated in January of this year, people around the world began to speculate about whether or not he would make good on promise to build the wall, especially as he had not included its cost in his first spending budget and the fact that is juts plain stupid.
