The Chinese Government has insisted to President Trump that any wall he builds on the Mexican border is going to be ‘totally shit compared to ours’. 
The Chinese Government has insisted to President Trump that any wall he builds on the Mexican border is going to be ‘totally shit compared to ours’. In a speech to communist party functionaries Chinese President Xi Jinping noted that China already has a ‘Great Wall’, which has existed for hundreds of years, and that whatever Trump builds will look ‘puny’ by comparison. 
 
The President went on to criticise Trump’s building experience, noting that whilst he had built ‘a few towers in New York’, the Chinese had constructed ‘a wall all the wall from Korea to Mongolia’ over a thousand years ago. 
 
However Xi Jinping did go on to admit he appreciated why Trump wanted the wall, and argued it could be effective. He noted that China hadn’t suffered a Mongol attack for ‘literally hundreds of years’ which must be ‘down to that wall’. Xi Jinping added that he wasn’t aware of a ‘single Mexican illegal immigrant’ having successfully crossed the Great Wall. 
 
Xi Jinping went on to state that he understood Trump’s demand that Mexico pay for the wall, but that in practice it might not be that easy. He noted that after ‘hundreds of years’ China still hadn’t persuaded Mongolia to pay for their wall, as demanded by the Chinese Emperor responsible for the construction. 
 
Analysts have noted that if the wall fails Trump could try the other technique the Chinese Government uses to discourage illegal immigration, by making the country so politically oppressive that nobody in their right mind would decide to move there. A source close to Trump told us that he is ‘actively considering’ this option.
