Is Trump Really Going to Build a Wall?

When Republican candidate Donald Trump brashly stated that he would build a wall on the southern border in order to stem immigration from Mexico and Central America, most pundits believed it to be merely a publicity stunt in order to garner attention. However as time as progressed, Trump has become the official Republican nominee and has showed no sign whatsoever of backing down from the idea.

In fact he took to Twitter on Tuesday to issue the following statement

Many experts had questioned whether building a wall encompassing the entire southern border would be feasible, due to very rugged terrain. Trump however later clarified that the wall would not extend the full length of the border due to "natural barriers" and therefore it would only have to be about 1000km in length. According to Trump the wall would cost 10-12 billion dollars and Mexico is going to pay for its construction.

When asked "what the wall will be made out of?" by a child at a Virginia rally, Trump replied "I`ll tell you what it`s going to be made of, it`s going to be made of hardened concrete and it`s going to be made out of rebar and steel".
