He recalled that the Democrats “do not want to build a concrete wall” on the border with Mexico, but said: “We are building an artistically decorated structure of steel slats, and you can see through it.” “It will be beautiful and at the same time will give our country security,” Trump wrote.
The construction of a wall on the border with Mexico to prevent migration to the United States from Latin America was one of Trump’s campaign promises. The construction of the facility began only in August 2018. According to the budget adopted in March, $ 1.6 billion was allocated for the construction of the wall, although initially Trump’s administration requested $ 25 billion for this purpose. In this regard, the President allowed the possibility of attracting funds to the wall from abroad and repeatedly threatened to suspend the work of the government if additional funds were not allocated for this purpose.
