In the final analysis, world leaders should have no influence on the border wall that President Trump will be putting in place this year. It’s a purely domestic matter. Mexico has no say either.
What Prime Minister Netanyahu’s support offers is information for libtards. Border wall work, no matter the naysayers. If America’s border wall is racist, then shouldn’t the libtards also acknowledge that Israel’s wall is racist too. Then there are those master racists, the Chinese, and their Great Wall.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu voiced support Saturday for U.S. President Donald Trump plan to build a border wall along America’s border with Mexico and praised Trump for referencing Israel in defending his wall.
“President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel’s southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea,” Netanyahu tweeted.
Afterwards, following anger from Mexico, the Prime Minister Office clarified Netanyahu’s statement, saying that “the prime minister was addressing Israel’s unique circumstances and the important experience we have and which we are willing to share with other nations. There was no attempt to voice an opinion regarding U.S.-Mexico ties.”
With the statement, Netanyahu thrust himself into the political debate currently raging in the U.S. over Trump’s immigration policies, and to a greater extent also into the severe diplomatic crisis between Mexico and the U.S. which saw the Mexican president cancel a scheduled meeting with Trump.
In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, Trump invoked Israel to justify his proposed plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border. “The wall is necessary,” the president explained, “because people want protection and a wall protects. All you have to do is ask Israel.”
Trump explained that Israel suffered from a “disaster” of illegal immigration, but once it built a wall, “it stopped 99.9%.”
The president was probably referring to Israel’s border fence with Egypt, which was set up in 2013 and has drastically decreased the number of immigrants and refugees from Africa who cross into Israel from the Sinai Peninsula.
