Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump has reiterated his plans to construct a wall on the border between the US and Mexico, in a bid to stop undocumented immigrants. Trump emphasized that, while the wall will be paid for by the US, the costs will then be reimbursed by the government of Mexico.
Trump made the comments on Saturday, at Gettysburg Town, Pennsylvania, in reference to plans for his first 100 days in the White House should he win next month’s Presidential election. The controversial billionaire also restated his intention to suspend immigration from areas of the world known as strongholds for terrorist groups. He put particular emphasis on the law he intends to enact to stop illegal immigration, which will include financing for the border wall.
Trump’s plans would also include cancellation of the billions of US dollars currently paid to the United Nations for programs dealing with climate change. Many of his proposals were like those of his previously stated plans to renegotiate NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement) and to withdraw the US from the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership. Trump also criticized the Obama administration’s imposition of an excess number of regulations, particularly relating to climate change.
Trump also attacked the Democratic Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. He claimed that she was not running against him, but against the American people and against any kind of change to the usual Washington policies.
