PressTV-No one wants Trump’s wall: Bernie

US Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders says Americans are not interested President Donald Trump’s multi-billion-dollar wall and that it “will not be paid for by Mexico.”

In a statement on Saturday, Sanders reacted to the nearly $18 billion the Republican commander in chief has asked to fund the border wall he had promised to build in his 2016 presidential campaign.

“I am not sure why President Trump wants to shut down the government over a multi-billion dollar wall that no one wants, is not needed and will not be paid for by Mexico,” said the Vermont lawmaker, who ran in the 2016 primaries.

Instead, the Democrat called for legal protection for the so-called Dreamers.

“What the American people do want, in overwhelming numbers, is to provide legal protection to 800,000 Dreamers and a path toward citizenship for them,” he noted.
