The Trump Wall between the USA and Mexico is not a dead issue as far as Trump’s most promised election agenda is concerned.
In some lighter but brighter thinking, the Trump Wall has some merits in his ambitious project, a legacy which will be lot more wider and taller than any other presidents in the history of America.
Here is a fictional dialogue between Trump and one of his close businessman friend:
Businessman: Can you shed some light on this controversial wall proposal, as many people on both sides of the border ridiculed your fancy.
Trump: It was a political stunt to please my innocent and committed worshippers. It was not meant to secure the border with Mexico either. The reason for putting forward this game plan was purely business.
Businessman: But how it can be a business venture.
Trump: You see, millions of people visit the Great Wall of China every year. And that is from where I picked up the idea. My wall will be much more grandeur in size and architecture. It will be number one tourist attraction in the world. I have built replica of Taj Mahal. But this one will be the real thing.
Businessman: It involves billions or perhaps trillions of dollars. From where the money will come from.
Trump: Come on, you know I am a great salesman, and with my charismatic personality investors worldwide will line up in front of the White House to avail this great opportunity. Moreover, I will be looking for sponsors and advertisers who can buy space to promote their products and services. The space, you can call it Trump’s Wall Street, is unlimited, running into thousands of miles from Pacific to the Atlantic.
Businessman: You are genius. Can I buy spaces on your Wall Street?
