It has been one year and four months since Donald Trump has the position as the president of the free world. He has shown America that he is very serious on one of his promises he made throughout his election campaign, The Wall. Trump has made some advancements in the process of building it. He spent half a million dollars alone on the test walls in a San Diego parking lot, while the real wall will cost an estimated $25 billion according to the Washington Post.

The downside of this is the fact that the national debt of this country is $21,164,006,327 and rising on the National Debt clock. Some people may see that the money could be put to better use. However, the other political party may see it as a good way to spend money in the name of national security. It is a very outstanding amount of money, nonetheless, and any worry should be considered by the president no matter the political affiliation.

Trump has also said one of his plans to pay for it could be to raise tariffs on imports.  This was iterated by Sean Spicer on January 26th, 2018 that Trump wanted to tax Mexican imports 20%. Another idea to pay for the wall is to raise the prices on Visas and border crossing fees. Hopefully the administration will decide on a efficient way to pay for it without having to make too many sacrifices. More information can be found at BBC.com.
