image for President Trump Starts Erecting Wall
It's a start

US President Donald Trump has, this morning, taken the first step towards realizing his dream of building a wall between the US and Mexico, by symbolically shovelling the first spadeful of dirt, in preparation for the first fencepost to be sunk.

The wall, which will be nearly 2,000 miles in length, is going to need several million such fenceposts, but Trump was eager to do his bit, and to 'get his hands dirty'.

Advisers were quick to tell the president that mechanical boring machines and diggers, not spades, were the optimum tool for the job, but the president replied that, "regardless of the personnel involved", the work needed to get started.

"It's better than shovelling shit back at the White House," he quipped.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
