(AhlulBayt News Agency) - In the meeting hold by Trump’s request, Saudi Arabia declared to invest in the cost of the Mexican border wall.
According to The Guardian reporting, Ibrahim Abdulaziz Al-Assaf, state minister of Saudi Arabia, said on the sidelines of the G20 meeting in Hamburg on Friday: “In the meeting hold by Trump’s request, Saudi Arabia declared to invest in the cost of the Mexican border wall. Saudi Arabia is ready to cooperate in the expense of building the US-Mexico border wall as investment company.”
Trump speaks publicly of his plans for fencing of the frontier and simultaneously tries to pressure congressional Democrats to approve the budget for the border wall.
The reports said Trump and House Republicans were developing plans to fund the 30-foot-high border wall through a 2006 law enacted by President George W. Bush that provided for over 700 miles of barriers along the southern US border.
Trump sought the wall, projected to cost more than $15 billion, as part of his effort to curb illegal immigration. According to Democratic Resistance, Trump has been forced to get into partnership with Saudi Arabia for investing and procuring the necessary funds to defray the cost of constructing.
