The President of the United States Donald trump reminded of the need to build a wall on the border with Mexico to ensure the security of the United States.

«We must ensure the safety of our extremely dangerous southern border, we should have a great wall to protect us, to stop the massive influx of drugs coming into our country,» wrote trump on Twitter.

Previously, trump has ordered to develop a project to build a wall on the border with Mexico, which, according to him, to pay Mexico itself. The authorities of the Latin American countries refuse to pay. Trump acknowledged that perhaps the original wall still have to pay American taxpayers. However, the US President reflects on the methods of recovery of these funds from the Mexico — for example, by imposing trade taxes or cutting aid to the Mexican government.

Democrats oppose the construction of the wall. Another key issue in the negotiations of the parties is the possibility of legalizing millions of illegal immigrants living in the United States.
