President Trump told Spain It Should Build a Border Wall Across the Sahara Desert

President Trump told Spain he thinks building a wall across the Sahara Desert will help solve the European migration crisis.????That’s according to Spain’s foreign minister Josep Borrell, who doesn’t think a border wall will be an apt solution.????According to El Pais, Trump told Borrell, "The border with the Sahara cannot be bigger than our border with Mexico.”????It’s important to note Trump is still struggling to have the US Mexico border wall built, he even threatened a government shutdown if he doesn’t get the funding.????Also according to a US Customs and Border Protection report, his prototypes are failing tests.????Despite all that, if Trump did suggest that a wall on the Sahara couldn’t be bigger than the one he hasn’t been able to build yet, he would probably be wrong.????According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the Sahara Desert is approximately 3,000 miles long, and the US Mexico border is a little less than 2,000 miles long.????Also, Spain has no territory in the Sahara.

The closest parts of spain to the Sahara are Ceuta and Melilla, which are two small territories in Northern Morocco that already have controversial wire fences.????Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has been welcoming to migrants, with reportedly 35,000 arriving since January of 2018, which is the highest number received by any country in the EU.????
