The great, great wall along the southern border between the United States and Mexico was one of the first things that Donald Trump announced he would do as President. Now he wants to kick off construction as soon as possible, and he’s still convinced the Mexican Government will pay for it, despite the fact the US is actually paying for it and the Mexican president is adamant he won’t be reimbursing them. Now, the prime minister of Israel is getting involved in the debate over the controversy as Benjamin Netanyahu has released a statement about the wall.

Netanyahu unequivocally supports the wall

Netanyahu did not beat around the bush in announcing his support for the wall. He tweeted: “President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel’s southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea.” Something tells me this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship between the US President and the Israeli Prime Minister.

Trump and Netanyahu have a meeting coming up to discuss the building of settlements across Israel, and Trump has made many promises to improve the tumultuous political situation in Israel and bring back a friendly relationship between the US and Israel, which he may or may not keep.
