The United States’ Embassy in Nigeria has temporarily closed its consular section in Lagos and FCT. This is as a result of Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto refusal to fund the construction of US – MEXICO border wall and failed support by democratic leaders. The president who condemned the plan in totallity vowed not to fund the project and doesn’t believe in wall. On the other hand, Trump refused to review his plans.
However, the Trump earlier order to the Department of Homeland Security to begin conctruction of wall prior to president Enrique Pena visit triggered the anger of Many Mexicans. Political analysts viewed such as an insult and a slap in the face. Trump went further to insult the Mexicans by calling them rapists and drug dealers. He repeatedly vowed to keep them out and as well forcing Mexico to fund the border wall.
Following December 11, meeting with Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer at the white house, while the battle on who funds the wall hangs. In the meeting, Trump demands $5 billion to construct U.S.-Mexico border wall. The Democrats refusal leads to trump’s order to shutdown government border security. Now, is quite obvious that most Americans and top government officials are not in support of the president. Nancy who is advocating for house of representatives debate speaks.

Nancy went further to tag Trump’s fixation on a border wall as a Manhood thing to him. Beside, stood her ground never to comply with the fund release stating that government shutdown is better tagged trump shutdown. She revealed in a tweet.
