Trump talks about how much the border wall is "reliable": it will be harder to climb than Everest

Overseas Network February 14th Trump promised to build a border wall when he was running for the US president, and he always had a tough attitude in this matter, and even stalemate with Congress due to the problem of repairing funds, resulting in a stalemate. The longest federal government in the United States has closed its doors. Recently, Trump once again mentioned that the repairing of the wall is underway. It is even said that once the wall is built, it will be harder to climb than the highest peak in the world, Mount Everest.

Integrated by the US Capitol Hill and Newsweek, Trump said at a joint meeting on the 13th that the boundary wall he had hoped to build for a long time was under construction and would be a major deterrent to illegal immigrants. We will do this, Trump said, the wall is under construction, a large, strong wall that is not a wall that people can easily turn over.

The US president also made an analogy to show how difficult it is to cross the border wall: To turn over this border wall, you must be in an extremely good state of mind. I think it is much easier to climb Mount Everest.

For the analogy of Trump, the US media also made a comparison. In October 2018, US Secretary of Homeland Security Nelson disclosed some of the newly completed boundary walls at the US-Mexico border. The wall is 30 feet (about 9 meters) high and 2.5 miles long. It took eight months to build in California. It was also called a fence by many people. In contrast, Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world, with a height of more than 8,800 meters.

On February 11, the two parties in the US Congress reached an agreement in principle to ensure that the US government will continue to operate normally after February 15. It is reported that this agreement will provide about $1.4 billion in funding for the construction of physical barriers at the border, but not for the construction of the border wall required by the President. Trump expressed dissatisfaction with the agreement reached between the two parties in Congress because it did not include his wall repair fee. However, he said that he does not believe that some agencies of the US government will face a second closure. (Overseas network Zhang Ni)
