As Donald Trump becomes 45th president of the USA, the question remains: will he build the wall?

Donald Trump won the election partly on the basis of a campaign promise to build a wall along the border between the U.S. and Mexico which would, ostensibly, keep people from illegally entering the country. Throughout the campaign, people wondered whether Trump was really talking about a physical wall or rather a metaphorical one, while others pointed out that there are already a number of walls and fences along the border. Regardless of Trump’s intended meaning, the symbolism of the wall was not lost on us.
