Summary: Trumps decision to build a wall between the US and Mexico is being blocked by senate democrats. Trump has disguised that the overall cost could be upwards of 15 billion and that he is expecting mexico to pay for the wall. But many republicans and democrats are skeptical that Mexico will pay for the wall as the country has insisted that it would not foot the bill. And it's unclear how Trump's funding package will be paid for or if it would be offset by new spending cuts. With the tension between US and Mexico it is unlikely that Mexico will ultimately reimburse the United States for the project. Along with the wall, Trump also was considering a 20 percent tax on Mexican imports, but later said it was just one option under consideration. Trump also proposed the idea to have the American middle-class pay for the wall. The costs for everything from groceries, to cars, to office supplies would go up by 20% causing many Americans to struggle buying basic supplies.
Connection: This controversy over building a wall or not and the details of the funding is a very prevalent issue witch impacts our daily life. This also exemplifies how opinionated people are on the decisions that the president is making.
Question: Do you agree or disagree with Trumps decision to make a wall? Do you think this will harm our relationship with mexico? Do you think this will hurt our image of a nation that is accepting of all races?
