Trump reaffirms commitment to build Mexico Wall

Trump reaffirms commitment to build Mexico Wall”

In the same 24 hour window that he nearly turned his border wall into something. if not exactly a good idea, then definitely facing in the direction where good ideas come from. when he announced that he planned on making the U.S. -Mexico wall out of solar panels. He had also insisted that he would make Mexico pay for the wall.

Taking credit for the concept, Mr Trump told supporters: 'Pretty good imagination, right?

Much has been said of the wall that will prevent Mexicans to head over to the USA without documentation, and now it appears it may use solar energy to power the region.

Reacting to President Donald Trump's tweet about Mexico being the second deadliest country in the world after Syria, the foreign ministry of Mexico issued a statement rubbishing the claim. He said that the solar panels would provide cheap energy and help to cover up the cost of the controversial wall, BBC reported.

Department of Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan said nobody from the department had shared the submitted proposals with the White House, though several have been made public by the bidding companies. The government has selected the finalists for contracts to build wall prototypes in San Diego and is expected to announce the winners soon. "Drug trade is largely the cause".

And despite the U.S. leader's repeated statements, Mexico has consistently derided the idea that it would pay for the wall's construction, valued at between US$8 and US$40 billion (RM34.33 and RM171.63 billion).

During the campaigns for the US Presidential polls, Donald Trump had pledged that he would build a "great great wall" to keep what he calls as "criminals", "drug dealers", "illegal immigrants", "drug traffickers", "refugees" out of the country.

The tweet is apparently a reference to a report last month from the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

According to the latest data from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Colombia have higher homicide rates than Mexico.

"And we're thinking of something that's unique". Trump said in Iowa. "Good? My idea." He added: "I think we could make it look handsome, too", he added.
