Well, that’s a good question. Donald Trump answer doesn’t satisfy, though. They do that because they have lost contact to their subjects, not because they love those inside the wall. It’s a sign of lacking democracy or frank dictatorship.
Walls are erected for keeping other people out. For starving them. For separating them. They are ugly.
Apart from terrible flaws, hubris and self-enhancement, and despite strongly submitting to law and order, Americans have usually been a welcoming nation. A multicultural melting pot.
In that sense, Trump’s childish insistence of his “wall” is racist and utterly un-American.
