As the US presidential elections charge on, Republican political party candidate Donald Trump is continuing to shock and awe millions of United States citizens as well as people all across the world with his campaigning strategies, unbelievable speeches and downright dirty deeds. Shockingly however Trump seems to be in the lead in the Republican delegate race.
What did Trump state in his recent memo on the transfer of funds to Mexico?
He recently announced that he is going to make Mexico pay for a border wall by stopping the huge amounts of money transfer that immigrants are sending across borders. Economists are already worried that this bold move may obliterate the Mexican economy and cause major rifts and hatred between the US and its ally.
In his two-page proposal to The Washington Post, he explains how he is going to force Mexico to pay for the 1000-mile border fencing which is being ridiculed and condemned by Mexican leaders and politicians.
Mexico being a struggling economy needs financial help from the US now more than ever and Trump’s hard-hearted plan of cutting off funding to Mexico would jeopardize the future of the Mexican economy. Trump’s plan has no feasibility, politically and legally, and he would be pushing his executive powers as the new President if he were to carry out this plan.
As a fresh political leader, he should be bringing countries and cities together and helping those that are financially weak and in need of help and not putting them in a potentially dangerous situation.
Also, in his memo, Trump even threatens to amend a rule mentioned in the USA Patriot Act antiterrorism law by eliminating a major source of funding to Mexico City in the form of money transfers also known as remittances. And that the only way he would withdraw his threat is if Mexico makes a payment of 5-10 billion dollars to fund the building of the border wall.
Result of Trump’s Mexico border wall proposal
After Mexico gave in to Trump’s fiendish threats and was forced to pay the money for the border wall building, Trump wrote in his memo that he would allow the transfer of funds to continue from the US into Mexico City and that it would continue for the years to come. He contests that a majority of the 25 billion dollars that was sent to Mexico in 2015 by Mexicans living all over the world came from illegal aliens.
Trump is also threatening to deport 11 million immigrants who are living illegally in the US, most of whom are from Mexico. Trump’s ridiculous presidential plans are not only stirring up condemnation and accusations from political leaders all across the US but has also received huge criticisms from the current president of the US, Barack Obama.
