    Donald Trump building his wall while uncle Sam, an important figure of freedom for america, is being weighed down by his money, age and by men stopping him ,simultaneously, the image of freedom and fairness of the USA is fading.

    After making his promise just over two years ago at the election, President Donald J Trump makes the calamitous decision to finally make a start with constructing his arguably unneeded wall that is predicted to cost a ridiculous price of between 12 and 15 billion dollars, enough to eliminate around 10% of America's poverty, or certainly enough to fund the research for many life-threatening diseases such as Cancer and Alzheimer's disease. The real question to be asked is 'Should America really be using all that money on building a wall? Or are there things that may be more beneficial to them?'

    Donald Trump's vision is to waist this money on walls to stop other humans with a different nationality to go to his country.

    A spoilt baby named Donald Trump is still playing with lego trying to create his "perfect" world, having the people he should be helping pay to continue his fantasy. When does xenophobia become racism?

    Nonsensical Trump hauls taxpayers money to the border to very little use, saving little money for a huge expense. He listens on, deaf to the responses of the public while congress shuts down but he's still there, undecided on what to do.

    Trump is still stubbornly building his wall, although he has been criticised by many. There is a taxpayer behind him carrying a heavy sack of money, paying what Trump has ordered ande looking disappointed that Trump has decided to use tax money for this creation. The real question is, is the money that's spent on the wall being wasted? Or is there more worthwhile cause to use the money for?

    In desperation, President Trump attempts to call upon emergency funds reserved for the direst of situations. Uncle Sam, a personification of America's values, appears withering and redundant as he slowly carries the weight of the project on his back, to the indignation of clear-sighted lawyers.

    In the picture Donald Trump is building a wall separating the U.S from Mexico out of Lego which could suggest that he is being childish and immature. He is also sitting down which could represent his laziness and unwillingness to get up and do his job. He is facing Mexico and not even paying attention to the fact that back in America Uncle Sam is being weight down by the amount of money and pressure that is being forced on him since Trump isn't even there to help.

He continues to dominate all others, his servants keep him from turning away from mexico "emergency" to the real issue; His countries needs.

  • Hornsey-logo-250x250.jpg inspiring_performance | Hornsey School for Girls
    24 Apr 2019

    Why? First off Trump is acting very childish as he is sitting down like a baby playing with LEGO building a wall to divide two countries apart. This means that the fact that he is building it with LEGO shows that it can be pulled down as people could fight against it and break it down. Trump is also looking forward into a country that he has no control over and is acting as if he owns the world, not paying any mind to his own country behind him.

    Speaking of behind him, poor old Uncle Sam is being stopped by secret services with all of America's debts heaved onto his shoulders. There's also an emergency sign next to Trump as he builds his 'special wall'. Is this an emergency?

    Donald Trump is wasting the government's money for no reason. American politician's think that it is a waste of time and money to build a concrete wall between two border's. Even if there would be a border Mexican people can take a boat and go around the border !!! I was in France the other week and there was a house between the French and Swiss border. Trump is basically saying that building a wall between a border doesn't really matter; what about the family in that house??? They wouldn't like to have a wall built into their house so it is split into two halves so why do it to the Mexican and American border. It would be harder to cross the border if you lived in America and had a job in Mexico.

    Donald Trump builds a wall between the USA and Mexico which is kind of a waste in my opinion because it doesn't solve any of the world's problem, but only causes another problem of argument and disruption.

    Donald trump cries out "emergency!" To congress in hopes of retaining an extra 8 billion from his initial request, contributing to his little toy that he labels "beautiful", however he appears deaf towards the feeble pleas from our struggling "uncle sam" a symbol of America who was once known to be a businessman in 1812 is piled under an abundance of dollar bills taken from military foundation and snatched from drug aiding facilities. Will Hurd appears to be telling Uncle Sam to stop as it would be easier to address him than the likes of Trump, who seems ignorant and impatient to get his shiny new wall.

    In the picture above, Donald Trump (current president of the U.S.A) declared the wall construction an "emergency" as he uses the Government’s money, causing them to shut down for a bit. He plans to build a "big, beautiful wall" to border the United States of America and Mexico - keeping out the unwanted. Trump raised America's tax, in order to pay off the wall - see figure far right carrying "$" sign.

And I'm pretty sure he is being stopped by a body gard, as Trump thinks that Mexico should pay 💰 for the whole thing!It costs BILLIONS of dollars 💵,and also stretches ALL the way from America to Mexico! But they don't agree, so Trump decides to take it to a whole new level, and pleads to the government,completing it with a simple phrase-'it's an EMERGENCY'.
