What's wrong with building a border wall?

    I don't think it should be a full on wall, maybe just put more secure border checks. Also, if they do build a wall, why make Mexico pay for it? If they're going to build it, Trump should be the one to fund it.

    Because if they don't, America can implement sanctions like tariffs which can ruin their economy.
    America can't impose sanctions on Mexico, they are both in Nafta which regulates trade between them. Plus, Mexicans consume a lot of American made products like sugar and wheat and American Farmers and agri businesses will go ape if their profits were affected by sanctions.
