Trump's Wall


I was stimulated by this issue and then read an article on Trump's wall in the New York Times.

It's not really a wall that Trump is after, if indeed it ever was. In my opinion it's a show of his might, it's a proof of his potency.

Trump spoke of a "crisis of the hearth and of a crisis on the soul". He mentioned drugs, crimes. It was an epic threat that he painted and a grossly exaggerated one. Whatever it takes to deliver on a promise that he should never have made. In my opinion,Trump isn't selling something that the country really needs and that's why he and his allies have laid the pitch with lies. He widly infilates the amount of crime committed by undocumented immigrants and just widly overstates the effect a border wall might have on the country's opioid crisis.

    This is an interesting point, that Trump doesn't really care about the wall but wants to show his power. How would the wall do this?

    I believe that Trump is not able to think about the life of inhabitants of Mexico with this wall. He use his autority to do things, like this one, that he thinks Americans feel well but in my opinion he does this things just for get new acclaims without understanding that facilitating a few people hurts thousands.
    Trump gives unfiltered voice to the anger and frustration some Americans feel. When he says he refuses to be “politically correct,” what he means is that he rejects the traditional constraints of public discourse. He doesn’t chastise his supporters for racism, nativism or religious bigotry; instead, he validates such views, bringing them out of the closet where they had been hiding.
