The wall is coming. Donald Trump is set to sign an executive order to get his infamous Mexican border wall built on Jan. 25, and The Mexicans certainly won’t be the ones paying for it. We have all the new details about the plans, right here.
It’s officially happening: Donald Trump, 70, is ordering the Mexican border wall to be built. On Jan. 24 a tweet went out from Don’s account announcing “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!” The New York Times then revealed that he plans to use an executive order to divert taxpayer dollars (AKA YOUR MONEY) to fulfilling one of his most controversial plans.
The report reveals that Donald will appear at the Department of Homeland Security on Jan. 25, where he will announce his official plans and sign the executive order. Of course, Donald has been talking about his wall for over a year, ever since he began his candidacy in 2015. Many speculated that it was simply a symbolic idea, that instead he will strengthen border security through more guards and other means, but it looks like there will quite literally be a physical wall being erected in the near future. He’s also said that Mexico will pay for the construction of the wall, and then explained that we will have to pay the estimated $25 billion cost for it first, and then they will reimburse us, though that sounds unlikely.

The same day, reports came out that Donald was set to announce a ban on people entering America from seven countries he deems “dangerous,” including Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. Basically, anywhere that has a majority of Muslim people and he calls “terror prone.” When Donald originally ran for office, the ideas of a Mexican border wall and a ban on Muslims entering the country seemed crazy, but very soon it will officially be reality.
