There has been a lot of fear and worry surrounding Donald Trump’s recent win in the election, namely because he proposed so many mental actions that could leave the entire country in turmoil.

The most extreme was the idea to build a huge wall to separate Mexico and the US, which is just dumb for so many reasons.
There has been much speculation over whether he’ll actually follow through with this extreme idea, and it looks like he’s already backtracking. During a recent interview with CBS’ ’60 Minutes’ host Lesley Stahl, Trump was questioned about the wall, which would cost $8 billion to make.
Although he said that he’d get Mexico to pay for it, obviously that is a completely absurd statement to make, and it would be a massive hit to the US economy. And while Trump maintained that he would follow through, he said that large chunks of it would be more like a fence than a wall. Not sounding so “impenetrable, tall, powerful and beautiful” anymore Trump. In fact it sounds pretty flimsy and weak.
On less amusing news, he did say that he will begin his immigration policy by deporting 2-3 million immigrants immediately. Well, good luck to you Trump because you’re going to have to try and govern a country that is seriously understaffed, which will have a hugely negative impact on the economy.
Maybe he should take some advice from Jeremy Corbyn and just grow up already.
