He promised to build a "great wall" on the Mexican border to keep people and drugs out...he would have Mexico "pay" for the wall. Essentially, Donald J. Trump declared "war" on Mexico, its government, its 122 million people, the forty million Americans of Mexican origin and iconic American companies like Ford, etc. Former Mexican citizens, Americans by 1848 treaty were critical to the United States victory in the American Civil War in the West.
