The committee which takes care of policies within the Republican party has made a major shift in a sign which signals they are embracing Donald Trump. The committee known as the platform committee of the Republican Party has backed the inclusion of a wall along the southern border with Mexico, embracing an immigration proposal that Donald Trump put at the center of his presidential campaign but that many say is impossible because of cost and logistical challenges. Mr. Trump has been criticized often by most senior politicians of the Republican party. Some say building a wall is racist.
However, the inclusion of a border wall in the Republican platform is a major policy shift which gives the clearest signs that the party is moving toward Trump, who has campaigned relentlessly on the notion of building a border wall with Mexico to prevent illegal immigration.
In support to this wall, former Republican Texas governor and Donald Trump supporter Rick Perry said that Trump doesn’t actually plan to build a physical wall on the Mexican border. “It’s a wall, but it’s a technological wall, it’s a digital wall “.Perry added. Perry seems to be the second Trump supporter to suggest that his trademark border wall won’t actually be a physical wall. New York Republican Congressman Chris Collins said in May that he thought it would be a “virtual wall,” and that Trump supported “rhetorical deportation.”
However, the proposal must still be adopted by the full Republican National Convention, which meets next week in Cleveland. Trump has pledged that the Mexican government will pay for the wall, whose cost would likely run into the tens of billions, but the panel’s draft platform makes no mention of Mexican funding.
Some Americans thought Trump was playing to the gallery when he said he is going to build a wall. The fact that the party has included it in its policy platform which is more likely that it would sail through the convention next week.
BUILD THAT WALL.
God is still saying something.
