5. War with Mexico
There’s no doubt that President Trump is creating conflict with our neighbor to the south—Mexico. Trump still wants to build a giant wall along the Mexican-American border and wants Mexico to pay for it. However, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has made it clear that he won’t pay for it. Cue the conflict. Many speculate that a trade war has already started between the U.S. and Mexico as a result of Trump’s actions and many others worry that the conflict could escalate. Starting a trade war, which could snowball into a full-blown war with Mexico, our country’s third biggest trade partner, is reckless on Trump’s part.
