controversial wall along the country’s border with Mexico
The past 12 months saw many fears about Donald Trump, in the United States and around the world, to build the controversial wall along the country’s border with Mexico. According to him, illegal immigrants, criminals, and terrorists are entering the United States and smuggling drugs through that border. Though Mr. Trump demands a border wall but many Congressional and Republican lawmakers aren’t just in it. President Donald Trump also says he’ll be ‘terminating’ NAFTA and sign a new trade accord with Mexico, potentially leaving Canada out of the bloc. And he has decided to end DACA, the Obama-era program that allowed undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children to remain in the country. President said on the issue, it was “in the best interests of our country” to “begin an orderly transition and wind-down of DACA, one that provides minimum disruption”.
President Trump threatened Kim
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un stated that the Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times. North Korea’s nuclear weapons can reach anywhere in the United States. In this regard, President Trump also threatened Kim. He said his ‘Nuclear Button’ is ‘bigger’ and more powerful than Kim Jong Un’s, and his button works! The world has seen the two leaders have threatened one another’s countries repeatedly over the last year. At the end of the year, Trump announced the withdrawal of thousand of US troops from Afghanistan and pulling out of Syria.
US embassy move to Jerusalem, recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and the announcement of the withdrawal of the United States from the Iran nuclear deal made more waves than ever. He makes different comment each time for the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and ultimately he retained biased position for the Saudi royal family.
