One of Trump's highly controversial campaign policies was that he would "build a wall" to keep the Mexicans out. He even went as far as to call them criminals and rapists. Of course all of us with sense scoffed at this ridiculous preposition, but of course he's gone and signed an executive order towards the construction. It is estimated by Mitch McConnell that the wall will cost $12-15 billion but OF COURSE the Mexicans have to pay for it. The Mexican president has naturally refused to pay for it and as a result of disputes over this issue has cancelled his meeting with Trump. Trump has been reiterating that the US won't pay for the wall.

So what are your thoughts on this crazy policy? Also interesting to see the US fall this week on the Democracy index...

Sadly it's not even the worst/craziest/most damaging things he's planning on doing! We're only one week in and he's already turning America into a fascist's wet dream. But hey, Hillary LIED ABOUT HER EMAILS, so to this is clearly better.

But seriously I think someone said it on here the other day? It makes complete sense, Trump wants a huge, physical reminder of his time in power long after he's gone. He doesn't care what it is, how it works or who pays for it (after all in 8, maybe 4 years, he won't have to worry about it anyway). He just wants THE TRUMP WALL to be a defining feature of early/mid 21st century geopolitics.

Its just a statement of his ego/power etc. as much as for zenophobic reasons. Unsurprising when all those towers around the world are named after him. He obviously wants something to show his legacy, like the Hoover Dam did for president Hoover (although that despite being named after Hoover wasn't even built under Hoover's presidency but Roosevelt's instead)

The first Democrat after him elected will probably order it to be destroyed anyway.

i hope that once the democrats get back into power that we start discriminating against trump supporters

keep them out of jobs, deport them from the country, take away their rights, take away their humanity (or what's left of it)

The best we can hope for out of all this is that Trump fails, which I think is an inevitability anyway. If his supporters see a fully Republican government fail to achieve what they claimed they needed to do for years or achieve it and it fail to improve things they might finally accept that protectionism and looking to an idealised past don't make for a successful plan for the future. I mean we haven't HAD ONE since the late 1920's (thankfully) so maybe history will repeat itself again and bring in a long running, unified democratic government directly after this clown.

Or they might just blame liberals ANYWAY because it's easier than accepting blame in yourself.

I still somehow doubt this will happen, I mean apart from the fact Mexico themselves don't want it and aren't willing to pay the millions of dollars for it, would Congress really fork out millions of dollars for something that likely won't even work anyway, apart from further boosting the cretin's ego by the fact he fulfilled a promise? Maybe I'm still thinking to hopefully, I mean he's already set the country back a few years and he's only been there less than a week...

I'm pleased that Mexico are refusing to pay for the wall,
I expect this wall will be more of a fence than a wall, if it even gets built...

All in all it's just another brick in the self-imposed isolation and alienation from society, represented by a wall.

I just.... no. I love that he expects the Mexican government to pay for a wall that keeps them out of America... Luckily that ridiculousness means it is unlikely to happen, because I doubt actual qualified politicians who are in Congress would be stupid enough to spend millions on this. Then again Republicans still think women shouldn't have the right to their own body etc. so I'd hardly use them as beacons of sound logic or mind :')
