From famous Mogul to President of the United States

The newly elected president of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has signed an executive order to start building the wall he promised his voters, between the borders of America and Mexico. The border will reportedly be 1,989 miles long between Mexico and United States.  Trump believes the wall will keep the undocumented immigrants from entering the United States and stealing jobs. President Trump said Mexicans are rapist, liars, murderers, and drug dealers. This is the reason why he wants to divide Mexico and United States with the wall.
President Trump should not build the wall because the border is already protected by border patrol and fences. Why waste American’s tax money to build something that’s essentially already there?

However, President Trump plans to make the American public pay for the wall if Mexico isn’t willing to pay for it. President Trump plans to raise the taxes by 20% to help pay for the wall.

President Enrique Pena Nieto conceded that he was wrong for responding unprofessionally when a reporter asked him if Mexico is going to pay for the wall. President Nieto said, “Mexico is not going to pay for that f***king wall.”  President Nieto questioned why his country has to pay for something the other country wants. It is beneficial to him nor the country. It will only make the country poorer than it already is.

The wall President Trump plans to build is going to cost approximately 12-15 billion dollars and take about 8-16 years to build. That’s longer than his presidency.

Why build a wall to keep immigrants away? This country was built by immigrants who came to work to provide a better living for themselves and their family. The American Dream is to be able to provide a good living for yourself and family.


By building the wall we would waste money building something useless.  We have learned from history that walls are not effective and can be destroyed and torn down. We can use the 12-15 billion for the families who are suffering from disease, starvation, and poverty.
