Donald Trump urges Spain to 'build the wall' across the Sahara

Closing ports nor building a wall is a solution like President Trump suggests says Spain's Foreign Minister

Closing ports nor building a wall is a solution like President Trump suggests says Spain's Foreign Minister

Spain's Foreign Affairs Minister Josep Borrell revealed President Trump's advice during a speech at a gathering of the non-profit cultural organization Club Siglo XXI in Madrid, Spanish media reported.

Mr Trump's pledge to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico was one of his best-known election promises.

President Trump recommended building a wall across the Sahara to solve Europe's migrant crisis, Spain's foreign minister says.

He insisted the USA border with Mexico was wider than the Sahara desert.

"The Sahara border can't be bigger than our border with Mexico", he reportedly said, apparently unaware of the size of the desert.

RapidSOS integrates with existing software at emergency centers in the U.S.to provide a faster, more accurate location with ELS . Hopefully, with this service in place, USA citizens will have similar success rates as other countries that already use ELS .

Borrell did not specify when or where Trump made the suggestion.

Borrell made it clear he disagreed with the plan, although Spain has built 20-foot walls topped with razor wire around its African territories of Melilla and Ceuta. The UN migration agency reports that more than 33,600 migrants and refugees arrived in Spain by sea so far this year, over 43 per cent of all seafaring migrant arrivals to Europe.

Spain has overtaken Italy and Greece as a popular entry point for migrants, with most coming from Morocco, Guinea and Mali.

Building a wall along the US-Mexico border - and getting Mexico to pay for it - was one of the key policies of Trump's presidential campaign.

"Build a wall in the Sahara", Trump suggested, according to the Spanish official. Prototypes of Donald Trump's proposed wall are being built near San Diego, California.
