Former U.S. President Donald Trump advocated restricting immigration to the United States. After winning the election, he began building concrete barriers on the border with Mexico and restricted entry for citizens and refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries, explaining this as a threat of terrorism. Subsequently, the barrier on the Mexican border was unofficially called the “Trump wall.”
