TRUMP- HOW AND WHY?
In the 2016 president elections, Mr Donald John Trump was elected as the new president. His promise was to make a 9 foot stone wall on the Mexico - American border. He said this was for the saftey of America, only alowing people with Visa to enter the country. This was to stop immigrant and illegal drugs entering the country. This was his famous quote:
'I will build a great wall - and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me - I build them inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make the Mexicans pay for that wall. Mark my words.'
The wall is taking billions of dollars to make, and nobody knows exact. 650 miles of it has already been built (1/3 of it) and more is to come. The orignal design was a stone, 9 foot wall. From here, his ideas escalated. Now, it is a Steel, 9-15 foot wall. This is how the price tag has raised from 12 billion pounds to the estimated price of 15 billion pounds. The lenghth is 1,900 miles across the Southern Border.
Trump wants to build the 'great' wall to fulfill his campaign promise. Many people voted him because of the wall, and he does not want the believers in him to be dissapointed that he has not built the wall. The Mexicans have already said they will not pay for it, and he does not want to dissapoint them again.
