Abstract

This essay examines President Trump's 2016 election campaign commitment to build a border wall with Mexico and the progress he has made in fulfilling this pledge during his first two years in office. Specifically, it addresses: Financial, legal, logistical and political problems that must be overcome to build a wall. Arguments advanced as justification for the project. Reasons why Trump has made the wall not only central to his election campaign but also a recurring, high-profile, policy commitment during his time in office.
